New Women's B-ball Coach
Puzzled that there is so little out there on this topic. I know there are bits and pieces on different threads but maybe it could all be pooled here. Has a committee been formed? If, so are they meeting? Are any of our former greats being considered? Anybody heard anything on when a decision might be announced? Anybody know anything they can share? Bueller? Bueller?

Yes, there is a committee, and they are in the process of interviewing.

LadySwish also mentioned McPhee-McCuin's contract being through 2020. That might be a hurdle we're not willing to take with the current AD budget.

I'm a little worried to tell you the truth. I'm usually a positive person, but is not the best situation, for us or the new hire.

RE: New Women's B-ball Coach
well likely get another Karen, karen 2.0 for the money we are offering. However, this one wont be as good as a recruiter. so theres good reason to be worried. are there any former players that are successful coaches anywhere? like Celeste Hill or Mery Andrade, atleast theyd be a familiar face

Why are people so obsessed with having a former player be part of this. When BT was canned, I don't recall anyone clamoring for Odell or Ricardo Marsh or any other former player to get the nod. Being a good player does not make you a good coach and vice versa.

Lets simply find the best coach regardless if he or she even ever played the game.

Let's not confuse lack of coaching acumen, with spending less on a coach looking to move up. We should give the new coach a chance. Again football is the cost elephant in the room.

We gave KB a chance, but it was obvious she has no coaching instincts once the game started and was very bad at X's/O's. What was really sad is that she seemed to get worse as the years went on, not better. That seems to indicate a reluctance to learn or inability too.

Some people did want Dave Twardzik though.

I know a lot of people think that football hurt men's basketball but I'm not 100% sure about that. I'm guessing they don't want to spend big money on a women's basketball coach because they know more raises are going to come for football coaches and they may need a higher salary for men's basketball.
