TTU Basketball Coach Featured In NY Times

Tennessee Tech University basketball coach Mike Sutton was featured Wednesday in the New York Times. The story noted that "basketball is the essence of who Sutton is and how his career survives." Sutton acknowledged that some people are taken aback by his appearance as he deals with Guillian Barre syndrome, but is quoted as saying he does not have time to consider the picture of himself. He says, quote, "When you can’t scratch your nose and you are being fed through a tube and you have to train your bowels to work again, you don’t worry how you look with a cane." Tech will play host to Eastern Illinois in a game Thursday night in Eblen Center.
