Kanaskie and Preston have to go after this season. Ed is a PSU guy and from everything I have read and heard, a really class act. He is the kind of guy that you want to see succeed. And Ed does know how to build a program, as look at where the facilities and other pieces were when he took over and where he has taken them to. In that sense, I think he knows how to work the PSU system. And I think the chances of PSU getting into recruiting violations and the seedy side of the college BBall game are very unlikely, which is the PSU way.
But let’s face it, he is not much of a game coach and doesn’t seem to be too much of a motivator. Fundamentally, this team is extremely poor. Other than Battle, we have not seen much improvement from anybody from this year to last and guys with multiple years in the program like Jones, Jackson, and Brooks have been very disappointing. Offensively there is still way too many times where Battle ends up with the ball and about 6 seconds left on the clock and is asked to go 1 on 4. Defensively, I don’t have a clue what they are doing and I don’t think the players have a clue either.
So Ed can stay in charge of the program because he is decent at it. But he needs to bring in a TOP NOTCH X’s and O’s guy who can install a real offensive system and teach these kids how to play defense. And Ed needs to bring in a LEGIT FRONTCOURT COACH that is also a motivator. Without two new coaches, this program is going nowhere.
