teaches, and perpetuates the doctrine of the game.

tenure, Coles annually conducted a basketball coaching theory class at Miami
University. In addition to continually trying to better himself through
attending other collegiate practices and watching hours of film in the off-season

embodied the Education pillar with his teaching both on and off the court.
Coles is survived
