I doubt Hasse would have signed without some sort of assurances on the conference affiliation.

Even if we end up in an "acceptable" conference without a football team going forward, I still think we have to keep the pressure on to get football back. The damage will be significant to the school. It is time to be deperate from the UABOT or time for reform where the members are truly alumni of their school.

Echoing everyone's sentiments, this is fantastic for our program and Haase is deserving. But don't take the bait and turn this into a football vs basketball debate. This is a deliberate move to take news off Monday's revelation.

I hope we have another bomb set to deploy. And yes, Coach looks like an ISIS captive in that video. I'm pretty sure his captors made him read that statement.

Finally, a contract extension is worthless if conference affiliation in basketball is reduced. It is a misdirection move--leading us to believe we are all-in on basketball, but if we downgrade our league affiliation, Haase will leave after a tournament run and we will replace with an ersatz coach in an ersatz league.

Do not relent. FIRERAYWATTS.

Where was the announcement for the BOT Athletic committee meeting for this decision? I am on the notify list and nothing was sent out. Strange.

This is the same BOT who approved short a contract extension with no pay raise just 2 months ago. Now do you believe this is more PR motivated than simple reward?

Watts PR team is trying to deflect...Watts no longer speaks to the stakeholders, he speaks exclusively to the general public.. He want those who believe UAB football is a drain on resources to believe his comment..

“Coach Haase is a rising star in college basketball, and we want him and his staff to take UAB to unprecedented levels of success,” Watts said. “Our investments in the program to reach and sustain excellence and win championships, along with the continued support of donors, will make these priorities a reality and bolster all of our athletic programs.”

That statement basically says Basketball will bolster all UAB athletic programs in the future not football. I am happy Coach Hasse will be our coach, that is good for UAB basketball, but I believe the AD in UAB's case the acting AD usually make these type of announcements not the schools President.
Watts PR firm is working its butt off trying to show Watts doing something positive even at the expense of a well respected UAB Coach with PLENTY of integrity, the hope is by being seen with someone UAB faithful honor and the casual fan admires that picture makes Watts look human and likeable.
The Trustees will approve this contract quickly.. in order to put a positive spin on the BOT actions as being pro UAB ATHLETICS and continue to attempt to control the story as much as possible.

This is excellent news all around.

When (not if, but when) the crapulent worm named Ray Watts is removed from office, football will return. The answer to every complaint about the next president's athletic (or Honors, or really any undergraduate) spending will be, "Got to fix the Ray Watts." "Ray Watts" will become a generic term for potholes, broken pipes and worn-out wiring.

Watts is paving the way for a glorious future with his boneheaded incompetence.

One right done for the UAB athletic department does not offset years of the BoT actively tearing it down.

The thing is... aside from an unlikely run in the C-USA Tournament, and a lone upset win in the NCAA's... people on this board were ready to fire Haase and look elsewhere.

With the exception of a couple weeks of March 2015, the consensus of this board was that Haase's tenure was mediocre at best.

I want to beat some to the punch and say

"Why the hell are we paying a coach ONE MILLION DOLLARS when he can't beat North Texas?"

No one was ready to fire Haase. A small minority questioned he could "get it done". He proved them wrong.

Since you don't follow basketball you might have missed the fact that UAB's improvement this year was longer than a few weeks in March.

And why was a CUSA tournament run unlikely.

Only a troll would downplay UAB,a win over Iowa State.

Go away Troll.
