Charlie's Inside Corner: Recycling

The sports world is not unique to it but they are, perhaps, the best practitioners of it. I'm talking about recycling. The practice of recycling old coaches, old administrators, athletes too. Fire a coach here and he pops up as the head man somewhere else. Kick a general manager out and he becomes the brains somewhere else. The sports world is a very small fraternity. The latest example of this is the naming of Lew Perkins to the Board of Directors of USA Boxing, the governing body that oversees amateur boxing, including Gold Gloves and USA Olympic boxing.
