RE: ULM Baseball and AD hired.
I think Floyd may be an excellent hire for ULM. ECU fans seem to be very supportive and happy for him. I do know they are not big fans of their current AD. I believe this is the second hire from ECU for an AD and not blaming them running from Compher.

I like both hires. I think Fed is making $120k a year, which would put us towards the top of SBC baseball coaches. Not sure where the $240k for Floyd falls. I think these hires show we are committed to improving athletics though. I like it.

Both good hires. I think we are turning the corner, albeit a little behind.

Well at least it's not the lowest. Who has the lowest now?

Two additional hires.
We're also pleased with these guys too. The pay was also increased for assistant coaches. I know that's something many of you discuss about us.

Assistant pay is essential. Hard to attract applicants even harder to keep anyone good.

Yeah that was the problem Coach Shake he couldn't keep assistant coaches. We increased pay for them so it won't be as hectic like before.

This is so AState 1990's. Get sideways with the guy you have, can't figure out nuthin for a deal and suddenly find more salary money after you hire the replacement.

Wick was partially let go because he was actively applying for every job he could. Did amazing things for ULM, but it was obvious he wanted out Bruno could have canned him last year when he had a replacement already hired. Gave him an extra year to find a job.

I don't know why people continue to be surprised by this. Many of us knew when he was hired that Wickstrom was using ULM as a stepping stone to a bigger job in the future...which is what we wanted. We wanted a guy who was hungry enough to do good things for ULM and make his own rep brighter for other jobs. We thought if we kept him for four years that was a good thing and that happened: we kept him four years. Wick loved Monroe and the school, probably would have stayed longer but Bruno was not at all helpful in letting Wick do what he does best and run the athletic department like he wanted.Wickstrom was more than accommodating in wanting to have a smooth transition but Bruno refused to go along with it. I'm hoping Floyd will continue to do and improve what Wickstrom started. I do think it's a good hire.

OK.

I like the Federico hire. The best thing is, he has no baggage. The other applicants did. A fresh start for ULM.

Good on ULM for increasing the assistant's pool.

But having said that, EVERY time a coaching change is made, especially after a firing, the new guy gets more resources than the guy before him. It's part of the negotiation.

The AD hire is interesting. I'll have a wait and see attitude about that one. Honestly, he'll have to go some to top Wickstrom. I thought the guy was making chicken salad with very little chicken. At least Wick was getting people to open their wallets a little.

But ULM still has a big issue. His name is Nick Bruno.
