NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 19: Head coach Jim Boeheim of the Syracuse Orange looks on against the California Golden Bears during their semifinal game of the 2K Sports Classic on November 19, 2009 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. (Photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty Images)
Jim Boeheim has been in Syracuse, New York for a billion years, transforming Syracuse University into a legit national basketball school, and is loved by the Orange fans. 28-year-old superfan Richard Miner decided to honor the coach that arrived as a freshman walk-on in 1962 before accepting the head coaching job in 1976, where he has brought stability and success ever since. Miner  had the following tattoo plastered on his leg as an unofficial thank you to Boeheim: “I’m a lifelong Syracuse fan,” Minor, a BBQ chef in Syracuse, told ESPN. “He’s done remarkable things for the program for more than four decades.” The seasoned Boeheim, with a whopping 948 wins under his college coaching belt, wasn’t as enthusiastic when shown the tattoo. “I would wear long pants for the rest of my life,” he told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman. It remains unclear why he picked such a bland expression of the 69-year-old coach as opposed to something more emotional:   Follow Andrew Doughty on Twitter @Adoughty88   [Instagram and ESPN] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
