Could be a happy ending for all concerned (except, of course, UNC-W)

Probably the best for all parties. ODU can move on, Barefoot gets to leave of her own volition (for the most part), nobody is stained by the optics of a firing, and a struggling mid-major program gets an upgrade at HC.

The Wilmington paper's story, which relies on the Swish Appeal report

Given that UNCW's last coach went 42-112 in five seasons, there'll be a lot less pressure to produce there than at ODU. Say what you will about Barefoot at ODU, but she should easily better those numbers down there.

Interesting - if true a nice out for all involved. 04-cheers
That said - - - it leaves ODU hunting/picking a new coach...
Kind of reminded of the old Chinese proverb about being careful what you wish for.

RE: Rumor: Barefoot to UNCW
This is awfully late in the game to be looking for a new coach. It is unfortunate for recruits and players, as well, who might be inclined to want to go elsewhere. I had wondered if the two Freshman transfers weren't the results of them "seeing the handwriting on the wall". Both seemed to be in line for INCREASED playing time next year.

Writing is on the wall once her contract was not extended.

RE: Rumor: Barefoot to UNCW
If all of this holds true, it will be very interesting to see who Selig brings in as her replacement. Should give us an idea of what he views as being good enough these days for this once proud team that is but a shell of their former selves.

I realize that times have changed from the 70's and 80's in the world of women's college basketball, but there is no reason that ODU should have fallen as much as they have over the last 10 - 20 years. With the right coach and enough dedication put into righting the ship, I believe that much of what has been lost can be fixed.
