How many coaches follow a legend and succeed? Not many. I would imagine the success rate is very low due to the elevated expectations.

Especially when said legend leaves the program in total disarray.

Well, the next coach will be lucky that they will mostly be compared to KB instead of Wendy.

I'm going to stay out of this is who we should hire...I was a in favor of the KB hire.

Wish her the best at UNCW.

Hindsight is always easy and of dubious importance. I didn't like the KB hire.

I always thought that JMU's Kenny Brooks should have been at the top of our list.
I guess VT saw that as well.

Maybe he didn't think the job was as good as what he had in H'burg.
ugh

In fairness, six years ago both ODU and JMU were in the CAA, and in-conference moves are unusual, especially since by then, JMU had surpassed ODU on the court.

I have been told by folks that are usually correct there will be committee and a national search. So, I doubt the hunt for a new coach will go quickly. Allow me to add the caveat that no top secret insider info is involved in the above info so it could be incorrect.

Now we need someone to rebuild this program from the floor up.
Unless you throw all the money at Nancy Lieberman, ODU women's basketball team is an after thought these days.
