Sutton Bouncing Back From Guillian-Barre

Tennessee Tech's men's basketball team doesn't need to look very far for inspiration. All they need to do is turn toward their bench and catch a glimpse of Head Coach Mike Sutton. The winner of the USBWA Most Courageous Award, Sutton was near death in April 2005. He nearly succumbed to the effects of Guillian-Barre syndrome and is still partially paralyzed. Sutton uses a motorized wheelchair to coach from the sidelines and is gradually moving into using a walker.

Is Sutton getting the job done? The school recently gave him a contract extension through 2010-11.
