Eustachy Better After A Timeout

"I'm proud to say, April 23 with the grace of God it will be four years that I haven't had a drink, and that has changed my life."

That's the new approach to life taken by Larry Eustachy, the head men's basketball coach at Southern Mississippi. He was a rising star in the coaching fraternity after leading Iowa State to the Elite Eight in the 2000 NCAA Tournament, an accomplishment that earned him a National Coach of the Year award.

He bottomed out in 2003, losing his job and his marriage after photos of him partying with students at the University of Missouri the night after a game surfaced. He found himself in Hattiesburg, Mississippi trying to ressurrect his career. Fortunately, he seems to be on the right track.
