Coach ditches team for Survivor

Needless to say, Ben Wade -- wasn't that the name of the dude in 3:10 to Yuma? -- was fired.

A great post over at SbB introduces us to the Southwest Baptist University women’s soccer head coach who left the team midseason to go film the show that has been around longer than Ryan Giggs.
SBU athletic director Brent Good said the school bought out the remaining three months of Wade’s contract because Wade did not tell Good that he left the team at mid-season to be on television.

“He said he was going to be gone for a week,” Good said. “And the week went beyond that, which went beyond that, which went beyond that.”
Now after seeing this photo, I picture this guy doing everything without his shirt on, including games and practices.

Maybe it's the best for SBU. Can't have shirtless guys running around all over the place.
