On Sunday, three days after the men's basketball season closed, so did something else. Neil Dougherty's tenure as head coach is over.
Dougherty will not return to fulfill the last year of his contract for obvious reasons - empty stands and loosing streaks.
Since leaving his position as assistant coach to Roy Williams at the University of Kansas to come to TCU, Dougherty has had six years of ups and downs.
Young voters are expected to have a substantial impact in determining who will be the next U.S. president, and as candidates are visiting the Lone Star State seeking votes in the March 4 primary, they have a chance to become educated voters for a better future.
