Keegan: Dad says Downs misguided

Micah never said it was Coach Self's fault he left KU.

Sad to say, the strained relationship between Micah and his parents was ongoing before he ever left home to go to KU. The family issues weighed heavily on Micah which caused him to make the sudden decision to return to Washington state.

The estranged relationship between Micah and his parents are not his fault, not the girlfriend's fault, not the girlfriend's parents fault and certainly not the fault of the people in Micah's life who have supposedly "misguided" him and "gotten in his ear" and caused him to be a "confused young man". Those people happen to be his paternal Grandmother, numerous aunts, uncles and cousins, his girlfriend and her parents. We have continuously encouraged Micah to stay focused, disciplined, do well in school, maintain a good relationship with his Coach and team mates, live a normal, happy, peaceful life working toward his goals in life pursuing his basketball career.

We only want the best for Micah and we do hope and pray the relationship between Micah and his parents will someday heal.

Thank you.
The Grandmother
