Coach Onalfo message to the fans

I exchanged emails with Curt Onalfo, the former Wizards head coach. I asked him if he was ready to do an interview and to see how he was doing. He did not want to do an interview just yet but did ask me to pass this message onto the fans:

"just tell the fans that I sincerely love them, want to thank them for their support, I will miss them and I will always cherish the moments we shared leading this group to two consecutive playoffs after they saw the team fall short in 05 and 06...lastly pls tell them to continue to support and cheer passionately for the Wizards regardless if they were opposed to the decision because the Wizards need a larger fan base for the team to have the success it wants long term..."

  1. Thanks coach. While I personally thought a change needed to be made, I still thought you brought a touch of class and respectability to the sidelines every week, and that's only reinforced by your statement here. As a fan of the Wizards, I wish you the best in your next challenge, and I look forward to giving you a good round of applause the next time you come to Kansas City.

  4. His professionalism was never in question, even if at times his tactics were. A few more wins could go a long ways towards growing the fan base as the Wizards go from perennial playoff spot contender to MLS Cup contender.

  5. He stunk! He is part of the reason the wizards did not make the playoffs.
