I am writing this note in support of Kelly Greenberg. While I have not kept in close contact with her over the past 35 years, I have watched her development as both a person and a coach from a distance. She is an outstanding human being and a morally sound individual. She works hard each […]

Dear Coach, I’m with you during this troubling time. I will never forget how giving and how professional you were in scheduling you team to come to Quincy and do a hoop clinic for Quincy Youth Basketball.

Coach Greenberg; passionate, devoted, enthusiastic, animated, wholehearted & unconditional. Kelly Greenberg was born to coach, to teach, to prepare, to mentor. This is indisputable if you know her personally. Kelly’s unmistakable adoration for what she does defines her as an individual.

I am truly concerned for future generations. We have become a society with children that are being raised with a sense of entitlement and the belief that “Everyone should get a trophy!” Here are the results!

It is hard for me to imagine, after reading all the heartfelt support posted on this website…some from players who had their own challenges while playing at BU…that anyone could attempt to destroy a lifelong, successful career with unsubstantiated claims brought by a vast minority of disgruntled individuals.
