I like Rob as well.

That style of play is getting harder to successfully run with the rule changes.

I had this same thought.

Other facility upgrades made during Haase's tenure like the locker room/team lounge and the new lights in Bartow should help.

if we are serious about basketball we will pay at least 1 million dollars

I think that's approaching our ceiling of how much we can pay. Unfortunately I think we have to start lower than that to have room to grow when the coach has success.

I like Ehsan because it will help keep this roster intact, he seems bright and personable, and from all accounts he's a very good recruiter. He also worked under Gary Williams at Maryland for 3 ir 4 years so he's done more than be an assistant at a mid major. I'm not sure if he's the best long term hire though.

If it is someone like Ehsan I think we start a little lower maybe around 650-700k. If it is someone with HC experience we could probably go closer to 900k. I agree that if we are serious we don't need to go much below 1 million.

Ehsan should definitely be interviewed and should probably be a finalist. Would like to see us talk to a few others as well though.

How is an Ingram and Eshan interview going to shake out ?

Ingram is the same guy that has been blocking giving you a raise for the last year, and now he's the gatekeeper for the job you want...

Didn't he just get a raise?

Champlin just tweeted Wilbrun was leaving with Haase.

He did not comment on Ehsan.

RE: UAB Coaching Search
I think a high major assistant like Haase is probably how we go.

If we did go for a current or former head coach, who would be a Win The Press Conference hire for Ingram?

Would Andy Kennedy or Mike Anderson pull a Jamie Dixon and get to UAB while the getting is good?

Probably not but what the heck, anything is possible. The local business leaders that have stepped up for football seem to have a way of making things good things happen. Hopefully they will have strong input into the basketball program too.
