Coaching Career

Mullins went into other non-basketball related ventures after his retirement from the NBA. In 1985 he became the 6th head men's basketball coach and athletic director at UNC Charlotte - a program that had reached the NCAA Final Four in 1977 but had since fallen on hard times. Mullins, remembered by many North Carolinians from his playing days at Duke, revitalized interest in the 49ers program and immediately brought in recruits who returned the team to its former winning ways. Mullins led Charlotte to the NCAA Tournament in 1988 (their first trip since their Final Four run), and again in 1992 and 1995, in addition to two NIT berths in 1989 and 1994. Although forced to relinquish his role as athletic director in 1990, Mullins was instrumental in the development of UNC Charlotte's on-campus Dale F. Halton Arena in the mid-1990's and helped spearhed the athletic program's move into Conference USA in 1995. This article is about the year. ...

ESPN.com - Horse Racing - Back to 'normal' for Mullins? (862 words)
Had Mullins, the man who thinks horseplayers are idiots, committed a similar offense in Europe or Australia or just about anywhere else he surely would have been banned for at least year.
Mullins, when he shot his mouth off to the Los Angeles Times' T.J. Simmers implied that he's proud to be an outlaw trainer and didn't exactly sound like a guy ready to clean up his act.
You can't punish someone for saying something stupid, yet it's disappointing that none of Mullins' owners haven't fired him over the incident or come out and said they are questioning their professional relationship with a trainer who has so little regard for the fans who put food on his table.
