If there was a coaches' wing he'd be in already, but there's not... and I'm not saying this to diminish him, but I can't see it as a "travesty" that he didn't get into a category where he doesn't belong.
What I feel is a travesty is that one of the most decorated coaches of the modern era won't get HHoF recognition because he passed away before he could get administrative credentials. But that's just my opinion.
