Blue Devil Crossing

NAME: Mike Pressler

OCCUPATION: Currently unemployed

The best coach in Duke lacrosse history is now also its worst. After coming up a goal short of a national title last season and being named the coach of the year, President Richard Brodhead sent Pressler packing-the first head to roll after three players allegedly raped a black stripper at a team party. Critics challenged the

character of Pressler and his team in the national media at a time when he and his players could have been making a second straight title run. After 16 years at Duke, who knows what the future holds next for him?
