NCAA Division I basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian is presenting at a free coaches clinic this coming Sunday, April 10 in Red Lake, Minnesota.  Red Lake is approximately 3 hours south of Winnipeg, east of Thief River Falls off of Highway 59. The coaching clinic is free and open to all coaches at all
levels and to the general public.  Check in is at 10 a.m. and Tarkanian will be presenting 50 minute topics on Winning Drills On
Offense, Winning Drills On Defense and A Philosophy of Coaching.  Tarkanian is one of the winningest coaches in college history. He also is well
known for his colorful behavior, including habitually chewing on a towel during games, and for his public criticisms and legendary clashes with
the NCAA. Tarkanian was eventually paid the largest settlement in NCAA history.  For details including a map to Red Lake...
