Balls check time
Time to see if our AD has the cahones to do what he needs to do. Another year of Wes and they won't draw flies. Looks like he's gonna break Sidney's record for losses for the season. Come on Chase and do what you need to do. Don't compound your mistake of hiring him. Just admit that you made a mistake, and fix it before it kills the program. Overall you've a very good job, don't let this one mistake ruin your legacy here.

I posted a couple of weeks ago that there was no way in hell, Wes doesn't come back for his third year. With each loss, I'm getting a little less confident in this prediction. I still think he'll be back, but he really needs to win a game or 2 before the end of this season to guarantee himself another year.

They're not just losing they are getting wooled around and aren't even competing with their opponents. Chasse seriously needs to do something. Wes is not a D1 caliber coach. They need a real coach to get the program back out of the abyss.

If the terms of his contract require us to buy out the 300K he would be owed for his third year it's not even worth talking about.

Why in the hell would you pay a guy with no head coach experience period a salary that you couldn't buy out, and especially one higher than Chris Beard made during his miracle year? Hell Flanigan didn't have a job when he came here. If you're gonna give him the head job, give it to him with a salary you could buy out if need be.

RE: Balls check time
the fact that they would even consider 300k for Flanigan gives one the impression that the fix must have been in......They need to bite the bullet and get it over with. There is no telling how bad we could be next year. The guy simply can't coach at this level and I wonder if he could at any level.
The program is once again irrelevant. .

Your new coach is waiting....!!! He can restore Little Rock back to one of the best teams in the Sun Belt. Cinco Boone of Angelo State University. Google him.

Go Red Raiders....!!!!!!

I assume he has a "standard" contract. Not sure if a buyout would mean paying his whole salary for the final year or if contracts put a specific amount in there for a buyout (ex. 100K). Regardless, if there is a buyout involved he not going anywhere. Even if there isn't a buyout, I have always believed a new coach deserves 3, if not, 4 years. We are starting 3 freshman. This is a complete rebuild. A new coach would likely lose Lottie and Cocoran, and we would be starting from scratch next year again.

I seem to remember Chris Beard did a pretty good rebuilding job in one year. Your boy in his second year of his rebuild job has gotten worse each year. Doesn't look like he can coach or recruit. Never saw a fan who loves loser coaches as much as you. I too seem to remember that that you said Shields wasn't going anywhere when he suddenly fired. There is still a slim hope Chase will again do the right thing for this program, and correct his one screw up before it's too late.

Beard was left, Josh Hagins, maybe our best player in 20 years (we haven't had an NBA player since Derek, Joe Stephens, Pete Myers, and Myron Jackson, all more than 20 years ago) Mareik (who transferred to Big 12 Texas) and Roger Woods (All-Conference; first team all-tournament). Obviously, he added some pieces. Wes was left with some role players and had to start from scratch. Wes has recruited some good players, but the best ones are freshman. Can he coach them? Maybe not. I assume we'll know the answer at this time next season.

I did assume Chasse would make a coaching change, based on my conversations with him (not that he actually told my ya or nay, which obviously would have been inappropriate). I seem to remember he waited more than a week, after the season, to fire Shields. It was after about a week that I said it didn't look like he would be making a change. It did surprise me when it happened, but it was the timing more than anything else.

Oh, and nobody loves coaches that ditch a program they supposedly support more than you.
