Who Should Be The Next DePaul Men's Basketball Coach?
My first choice for the replacement of Oliver Purnell to coach men’s basketball at my alma mater DePaul University is my former classmate Tom Kleinschmidt.

With Oliver Purnell Gone DePaul University Must Find Its Identity
This afternoon Oliver Purnell stepped down as DePaul University Men’s Basketball coach after another disappointing season. In his five seasons, Purnell went 54-105 overall and 15-65 in Big East Conference play. Often the team looked over matched during these years but this year looked different.

DePaul University Doesn't Need a New Arena
As a DePaul alum (class of ’99), and former men’s basketball ticket holder, let me give you the low down on my beloved alma maters basketball program. Nothing, because the team got beat last week by lowly Gardner Webb and they play in a barn next to an airport 18 miles out of town. For... Read more »

    Charles W. Johnson

    I'm a lifelong writer (since I was 8 years old), and have been doing this blog in some form or fashion since 2004. I'm a DePaul University alum (LA&S '99), and know and love Chicago. Writing is my passion, what I write is what I feel, know and have experienced. I simply want to share my thoughts, experiences and opinions. And I appreciate you taking to the time to read what I have to say.
