Losing BB assistant - Ultimate Insult
The Record Courier is reporting the head BB assistant coach Bobby Steinberg is leaving KSU for a similar position at, for pete's sake, Youngstown State. I will save my barfing until more info is known. He was our top recruiter and a good guy.

I'm surprised it took him this long to leave. We don't pay assistants well and Haut is probably in line a head of him to be Sendy's replacement if/when he leaves. Best of luck to him.

I guess basketball is a priority at YSU. I suppose we should wait to see who they hire but I'm not optimistic it will be an upgrade.

YSU is pumping a lot of money into basketball. Bobby got the Associate Head Coaching title. Also, you might be waiting a while. Doubt anything will happen quickly in regards to hiring his replacement.

If I'm not mistaken Steinberg was our primary JUCO recruiter so my guess is we'd look for someone from the JUCO ranks to replace him. Alternatively McKee has been the director of basketball operations for awhile. Might be time to promote him.

Or beg Demetric Shaw to enter coaching. I don't think we'd ever get off to a sluggish start in a game with him on the sideline.

Unless you have the $$$ to do it fast, (Like YSU03-lmfao03-lmfao03-lmfao) ... few head coaches want to lose top assistansts in the midst of spring signing period. ... So Kent might not get a replacement until mid-may or later. My guess.

He served us well. Probably the time to make a move. Such is the AC life.

RE: Losing BB assistant - Ultimate Insult
It is not a question of making a move for professional advancement. It is an insult to go to a step down program. As far as I know, he was our number one assistant. He is going to a athletic program in a lower division with half our budget and still as an assistant. He should be leaving for a head coaching position at that level.
