    No insider, but I have heard from multiple sources that we will be hiring a third assistant coach this decade. Count on it.

    Maybe Underwood has decided he only will need two assistant coaches.

    Yes, and on this forum the more sure someone gets about a player being a done deal, the more I expect to hear it all falling through an hour before the player was going to commit. Sometimes I think I would like to just not hear anything at all. And yet here I am back on this site, waiting for...
