The 956th game of Bob McKillop’s coaching career was unlike any other, one which McKillop approached in the most detached of terms -- preferring not to look at the jerseys worn by the opposing players or at the coach standing a few dozen feet to his right, because to do so would have made everything too weird, too difficult, too emotional.
McKillop: “I never think in terms of coaching trees, I just don’t. I think of brothers. I’ve got lots of brothers in this profession, and they’re the ones I stay in touch with. There are a lot of colleagues. But I’ve got brothers and that’s what I find very fortunate.”
