RE: Dambrot Leaving??
I think you could almost bet with their budget woes, they will not be bringing in higher-priced coaches with MAC-level and beyond experience as head coaches. I'm guessing a first time head coach coming up as an assistant or a low-major coach looking to move up. The issues there would give guys like Groce and others with his experience pause. I'm thinking Akron will go for a new head coach, not an experienced one in order to save money in the short term. They will like the hundreds of thousands of dollars they now are not paying Dambrot and are probably already figuring out ways to spend it not on a coach, if it's like any bureaucracy I know.

If they all happen that is a lot of transfers for a "successful " coach. It sounds similar to what happened at Ohio St. with Matta. Any idea why that was going to happen? Did the players know he was leaving awhile ago or did the program have serious coach/player issues throughout the year. They did play poorly (for them) at the end of the season. Cheatem in particular looked bad.

Player/Coach issues. Those people close to the program felt the players quit on Dambrot. He went nuts on them when they lost to us at home.

Williams is a problem child. His dad is a mini Lavar Ball

Dambrot knew at least 2 more would transfer and then losing two seniors was going to make it tough for next year

Keith also lost to STV kids. That was a pipeline for him. The younger Williams to Robert Morris and Graves to Buffalo. Btw, I think Graves could haunt us at Buffalo.

All of Keith's assistants got 4 year guaranteed contracts.

Willing to bet his leaving had more to do with Akron than what the Dukes are offering.
But hey, they have a new football stadium... well, it was new.

In other news, Youngstown State named Jerrod Calhoun their new head coach. I have a few friends who know him very well. He is a disciple of Bob Huggins.

From Verbal Commits twitter feed:
2018 Paint Valley (OH) F Dylan Swingle has received an offer from Duquesne.

Former Akron G Tavian Dunn-Martin is transferring to Duquesne.

2017 First Love Christian (PA) G David Collins has received an offer from Duquesne.

Akron and Duquesne offered 2017 Trotwood-Madison (OH) G Torrey Patton.

2017 Dakota (MI) F/C Jack Ballantyne has received an offer from Duquesne.

Duquenese seems like it is in as much disarray as Akron is. Its going to take him 7 years to build a program to get an at-large. I see another dozen-or-so years of NIT runs in his future.

As a fan of Akron's rival, I don't like this simply because it hurts the quality of the MAC. I am wondering what the fallout will be wins and loss wise at that purgatory they call a gym.
