Let’s just say Jerry Tarkanian wasn’t on the NCAA’s Christmas card list. All three schools “Tark the Shark” coached at faced NCAA penalties as a result of his time at the school. IN 1977, The NCAA ordered UNLV to fire him which began a decade-long legal battle that eventually made it to the Supreme Court.
He sued them, they sued him. Everyone got sued and Tark kept coaching. He didn’t make many friends in the media either as he was particularly aggressive with them as well. He sure could coach though.
