Once an assistant coach is hired, they are subject to NCAA rules and restrictions. Until that time, in theory, they are not. So the game has always been to have a verbal agreement with the prospective assistant coach and let him go through as many of the camps and such not yet employed so he is not limited by the NCAA.

Plus the new budget year is July 1

Larry Brown has never been subject to NCAA rules and restrictions. I can't fathom anyone from the university allowing him to wander unsupervised, "unofficially" around anyone. If we hire him, we do everything short of locking him up on campus and making him wear an ankle bracelet.

There are no words to describe how stupid that would be.

Penny is working with a skeleton staff right now. Adding the recruiting duties to the coaching duties you would think it would bring Larry Brown on sooner rather than later.

Not much can be done right now, and Brown likely won't be recruiting anyway. I agree that if Penny is going to replace JJ, then I'd prefer to see it sooner rather than later. But maybe the person already knows this and will use summer ball to work without the yoke of the NCAA.

LB will be fine as long as he becomes official before fall practice.

We need a strength and conditioning coach first IMHO. Part of our run last year allowed us to wear teams down. Our depth was good but conditioning was better. We will need someone just as good and hopefully better than Rich.

Agree on the priority for a good S&C guy. I was never sold on Rich. We didn't finish A LOT at the rim last year. We seemed weaker than most opponents. I attribute our full-game intensity more to coaching and depth, than to better conditioning.

I think we have a lot of upside with this position.

Interesting observation. I attributed that to a weak mind and not a weak body. But it's during weight training that you develop the strong mind that gives you the confidence to run through a brick wall.

Hopefully we see the gains from this position.

Geoff Calkins said he expects the Larry Brown hire to Memphis to be announced within a week or so.

It simply has to be that everyone involved is waiting on the Penny-Orlando thing to settle out. All indications is that he has been fully approved.

John Martin said a source indicated to him that Penny wantd Brown's role to be more of an ordinary assistant. In other words he also wants Brown on the road evaluating talent. I said go for it 04-rock

I'm absolutely all in on handing the keys to this program over to Penny. If he wants Larry Brown to have full Assistant duties or if that's what Penny needs to get him... do it.

Hand Larry Memphis, North Mississippi and Arkansas. Let him recruit off a tank of gas and let the other 2 assistants and Penny go national. Larry don't need to be hoppin' in and out of planes, even if they are private.

Larry is still deeply involved with recruits. He still has great connections.

Amazing that the same kid that was ruled ineligible by the NCAA his freshman season, actually turns out to be a genius @ Business 01-ncaabbs

Larry will be on campus with an ankle bracelet. Allowing him to recruit on the road (I doubt he wants that) would be idiotic.
