Would you hire...

A Head Coach that had a connection to bring in a 5 star with him his first year but had minimal coaching experience?

#3

no.


#4

Nope


#5

clt asks if this is about Dalonte Hill?


#6

The question makes no sense. A 5 star isn’t going to follow Jesus here at this point.

This scenario has played out here and other schools before.

5 star kid commits for coach, then someone gets in his ear and convinces him to change his mind after he has signed an loi.


#8

So, name the 5 star commits associated to a head coach in a league ranked well below CUSA? Obviously no coach is going to move DOWN to CUSA.

Whatever i see some crazy names in the HC list too so no need to be realistic here i guess. It’ll give you guys a reason to fire the new AD. :wink:

Stansbury

"“He’s a huge red flag,” one high-ranking NBA executive told ESPN. “And I’m not sure he’s even that good.”

Also look at the offer list: http://www.espn.com/college-sports/basketball/recruiting/player/_/id/203421/mitchell-robinson
Not exactly 5 star territory other than texas A&M sometimes where Stansbury was an assistant not a head coach.

Finally WKU is an established program with a good chance at success out of the chute not a total rebuild.

This belongs in the HC thread but if you want someone who might be able to convince a 3 star or two to come with him you need to think assistants in my view as they may drop down a few conferences for a rebuilding HC job. I suppose if you throw enough money at it you might get a high level conference assistant who isn’t a reclamation project himself (aka Bruce Perl type and I hope we would not go that route!!). I haven’t kept up - Is there any idea how much they’re willing to pay?


#13

Forbes makes 240k
Kelsey 228k

For $500,000 that should land a top 50 coach.


#14

I think we should shoot towards the 750k mark though to be top in conference.


#15

No.

We don’t need a 5 star recruit to be successful. We need a bench full of 3 star recruits with decent basketball IQs that physically can play ball and a coach that can get them to play as a team. I want a coach that has won with that kind of recruits.

You win with those types of recruits, you can start stealing local 4 and 5 star Charlotte kids every once in a blue moon.


#17

We need a major overhaul in talent. A recruiting coordinator that can build a team, not just an assortment of players.


#18

This staff we had still weren’t going to address our problem for next year.

We are set to have

G Davis
G White
G Robb
GMcGill
G Murphy
G Vasic
G Bigelow
F Garvin
F Mangum
F Supica
C Thomas
C Haslem

Post players are terrible but we go sign a guard and two wings

Not saying this is our roster. This is the intended roster our previous staff had set. Another year of misery was coming.
