Bucs in the News: Charleston Southern coach hopes for less drama tomorrowSeptember 24, 2010
By Stephen Tsai, Honolulu Star Advertiser
It is a story head coach Jay Mills indeed will share with his grandchildren one day.
Last week Friday, on the eve of Charleston Southern's game against Mars Hill, Mills received a call from his pregnant daughter.
"Her water broke," Mills said. "We talked all through the night and morning. She lives up in New York. I kidded her that she had to have the baby before 12:30 (p.m.) because that's when I go off to pre-game warm-ups."
Mills then told his players that the game came first, his impending grandfatherhood second. But Mills hedged his vow. His wife held his cell phone.
