Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Al McGuire

He is quoted as saying “I think everyone should go to college and get a degree and then spend six months as a bartender and six months as a cab driver. Then they would really be educated.” That was Al McGuire, broadcaster and basketball head coach at Marquette University from 1964 to 1977. He won a national championship in his final season at Marquette and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1992. I asked Al for his thoughts on coaching, his feud with fellow broadcaster Billy Packer, and his insight into Marquette basketball. His final comment was typical Al McGuire.
