Best Coach 

Gary Waters

The Indians are in search of a new manager, Eric Mangini has been roundly panned and opinions on Mike Brown are split. So this year, Cleveland's best coach comes from the college ranks. Gary Waters, at the helm of Cleveland State's men's basketball team, has already taken the Vikings to the verge of the Sweet Sixteen in his short tenure. In a town dominated by the pros, Waters has helped carve a niche for the urban university with a mostly commuter-based enrollment. No longer does the legacy of CSU basketball have to rest with Kevin Mackey. And that's a good thing. — Grzegorek
