Robert Siegel talks with Paul Daugherty, sports columnist for The Cincinnati Enquirer, about the resignation of University of Cincinnati basketball coach Bob Huggins.

Huggins has been the coach at Cincinnati for 16 seasons. But he has a colorful history, and the program has rarely been noted for its academic commitments. This week, Huggins was given an ultimatum by the school: resign or be fired. Huggins took the option to resign with some $3 million in severance.
