How’d they decide on 8 years? Kind of arbitrary. Eliminates Stevens, no, and the VCU coach? I guess if they really wanted Brown or Knight they could change that to 30 years to eliminate competition, or maybe requiring at least 1 NCAA Championship. :wink:

Coaching experience, not necessarily head coaching experience.

Stevens has been coaching for 10 years and Smart for a little more than that.

It means nothing. Posting the job is just something that they are required to do by law. They’ll hire who they want whether they specifically meet the criteria or not.

So based on this our video coordinator must be leaving too. Guess the entire staff might be new.


#7

Probably following Ed to Navy…


#8

BTW, is the why Ed didn’t jump and immediately try to hire a replacement for Preston? He kept saying that he wasn’t leaving PSU, but going to Navy and that the job just opened. But was he actively pursuing Preston’s replacement before then?


#9

Funny - most were ready to crucify the A Dpt because the assumption was that they would bring in a neophyte, then the posting is read and the experience is arbitrary.


#10

It was a prior posting; DJ was being bumped up to the DOBO spot, which opened the vid. coord. spot


#11

Who are these “most” that you refer to? I don’t know of a single person who expected the job to be handed to a neophyte.
