FILM GUIDE COACH
One of college basketball’s most prolific coaches, hall-of-famer C. Vivian Stringer became more well known to the non-sports world when the words “nappy headed hoes” were used to describe the young women she was then leading to the 2007 national championship game. A mother whose career has long been mixed with personal tragedy, Stringer’s handling of the incident is a perfect example of grace under fire.
