Look at his record to see what he can do. He hasn't had a winning record or close to it ever. A great assistant but not the person to continue with the QND tradition. Being a Alumni doesn't make you a good coach. Bender was a great coach. Connell is a great coach. Douglas was a great coach. Were they Alumni?

It's that 8 years has went by, jeez the guy was working as a an ASA, running the dag gum school board, in the ANG, and now he's on a 5 million dollar bond, hasn't hurt anybody and has ties to the community, no flight risk, (that's what defense would argue if there wasn't a "money crunch"....)

Carroll Cullerton accused of sexual battery in Memphis

6 months, 3 weeks ago by WMC-TV

Son of IL Senate President John Cullerton

 (Note the nature of the following story)

On Friday, a Mid-South woman shared her story of an alleged vicious attack inside of a Beale Street nightclub. The man at the center of a sexual battery investigation — the son of a prominent Illinois state politician.

The politician is President of the Illinois State Senate John Cullerton, and his 26-year-old son spent part of Independence Day on Beale and behind bars.

They say nothing good happens after midnight. What Emily Moss says happened to her early Friday morning inside Club 152 was anything but.

"You wouldn't anything like that to happen to your little sister, your mom," said Moss.

Memphis Police charged Carroll Cullerton, 26, of Chicago with sexual battery for allegedly fondling Moss on the third floor. She had just gotten off work when she says Cullerton started dancing too closely.

The affidavit states Cullerton unzipped the victim's dress, exposing her bra to a crowded bar, then ran his hands between the victim's breasts.

Moss says Cullerton even told club security and police about his political ties.

"I guess he thought that was OK and he could get away with that, I'm not sure," said Moss. "Especially when you tell people ‘stop, don't do that,' and they do it anyways."

Cullerton bonded out of jail on Friday night. He is due back in court on Monday.
