Mike White profiles Fox Chapel assistant basketball coach Stu Lyon.
"The new boys basketball assistant coach at Fox Chapel High School took up residence on rock bottom a few times over the past two decades.
That's where alcoholics and homeless people can land, even if one is a former basketball star such as Stu Lyon.
"I don't need to get too specific," Lyon said, "but I remember having to sleep next to a train bridge in St. Paul, Minn., using stolen insulation above me and below me."
That's just a sampling of the way life used to be for Lyon ... and not all that long ago. Lyon is a former WPIAL star, a former major-college basketball player who got an MBA from Duke and who used to live large, trading stocks on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange. But as recently as April, Lyon was homeless in Chicago."
