Have you ever begun a project at work that you knew would be an embarrassing failure even as your boss was describing it to you?
That had to be the emotion Villanova coach Jay Wright experienced when someone told him he was going to participate in a flash mob dance routine on campus Tuesday as part of the school's Welcome Week festivities.
Give Wright credit because he appears to do it without complaint. The above video shows he and Villanova president Peter Donahue enthusiastically dancing to Katy Perry's pop hit "Firework" as hundreds of students, including a confused JayVaughn Pinkston, observe.
Wright wasn't terrible, but he falls squarely in the middle of the pack among coaches with a history of dancing in public. Put him behind Marquette coach Buzz Williams' sideline hip-hop dance or South Dakota coach Scott Nagy's choreographed "Dancing With the Stars" routines, but Wright can at least feel secure that he's still well ahead of the Herb Sendek "Dougie."
