Bryant lacrosse coach Pressler is a man of his word

“It’s amazing,” the Bryant college president said. “In today’s world, not only in sports but in business and in every walk of life, it’s very unusual to see someone get offered substantially more money and say I have a contract and then not come back and ask for more money. Never once has Mike come back and asked for more money.”

Smith added that, “Mike is on everybody’s short list. That’s a great thing for Bryant. He’s coaching Team UISA. He was 12-5 this year. His reputation is that he is the best coach in the country. The fact that he wants to stay here and win it here says a ton about his character and loyalty to Bryant University. There’s no question that Mike Pressler is a man of his word. We asked when he signed that he would be here five years, and he will be here five years.” Providence Journal

Note to the Duke Administration from LieStoppers

It would be well if character and reputations were used distinctively. In truth, character is what a person is ; reputation what he is supposed to be. Character is in himself, reputation is in the mind of others. Character is injured by temptations; and by wrong doing.; reputation, by slanders and libels. Character endures throughout defamation in every form. But perishes when there is a voluntary transgression; reputation may last through numerous transgressions, but be destroyed by a single, and even an unfounded, accusation or aspersion.
From the 1921 Edition of Webster’s New International Dictionary
