    Every situation is unique to the people involved, right for him, maybe wrong for others, maybe right for others. Now the funeral is over should he sit home and mourn? Getting back into the game maybe beneficial to him and also maybe soemthing he knows his father would have wanted him to do. It's his personal decision and he is doing it so it is right for him, not up to us to judge him IMHO

    It's entirely up to him. His decision to coach leads me to believe Mike thinks his father would want him to coach, and that it may be his way of coping. Who knows?

    I vote "I don't have an opinion either way," because it is a very personal decision.

    BB coached the day after his father died. The dads probably would've wanted it that way.

    He should do what's right for him and his family, and we should respect that.

    Both of those things are true, I believe (which is why I won't vote).

    But, for what it's worth, if you've ever had a relative with Alzheimer's, the loss comes gradually: you have probably done a lot of grieving before the physical end, which can really seem like a release -- you can finally remember the person at their best.

    IMO it's disrespecful to question anyones actions re family deaths.

    The decision is a very personal one and should not be questioned by anyone.

    You are so right, Mike. My grandfather died of Alzheimer's two years ago and he hadn't been himself for years and years. It was almost a relief, really.

    He might want to consider not coaching that team the rest of the year...
