Kermit Davis became head coach of MTSU in 2002. Mike Davis was hired by UAB in 2006. Kermit was interviewed, I believe, as a courtesy.

Ah, you are correct. Thx

The fact that some games there was no effort and some games they looked fantastic does not seem to me that they got worse. If Ehsan is to be blamed for anything, it was his inability to keep this team motivated...and I'm not sure any coach could do that. The free throw percentage going down throughout the season tells me it was all in their head.

This type of logic is not acceptable around here. Ehsan sucks and is in over his head. As I've stated before, it was obvious who the leader of this team was, and without him we were a team full of ups and downs. People forget how many easy buckets lee and Cokley got simply because norton put the ball in the right spots. We should have had a backup plan for if norton went down, but how much of that can really be place on Ehsan? We tried like hell to recruit some good pgs and failed. Haase always said he wasn't going to take a guy just to have a player on the roster. It was a frustrating year to say the least, but I still think with a couple of additions we could have a really good year next year.

RE: Once again...
Motivating and having a team prepared IS the responsibility of the coach. Of course the players share some blame, maybe most of it but if you are going to give the coach a pass on how hard his team plays then count on us continuing to decline as a program. BLAH!

If I am the coach, and effort is the problem. I'd lose with lesser talent and better effort than put up with the crap of the players. If the WHOLE team is not giving any effort... that is coaching. This team got worse over the course of the season, it was obvious. Yes they had a couple bright moments in the downward trend, but the trend was still downward.

For those that are defendimg Ehsan and blaming the players for their lack of effort and motivation, I'm curious what you all consider the role and responsibility of a head coach to be.

There's plenty of blame to go around to be sure, but a lot of folks are giving ehsan an near complete pass. The buck stops with the coach. What happened this year to give anyone any confidence?
