Director of Basketball Operations, Asst. Director of Basketball Operations, Assistant to the Head Coach, Director of Recruiting and Scouting, etc. are all the same thing, a non recruiting staff position. Different teams call them different names, but the position is defined by the head coach in a manner that will assist him in achieving his goal, to win games. Billy Gillispie hired Jerrance as an Asst. DOBO at Kentucky so he could drive Billy around so he wouldn't get a DUI. Had a different title, but did the same thing at TAM. I like the fact that you have a staff person that can relate to the players. I'm sure part of the job is to handle the on campus recruiting visits and I think it will be beneficial to have a 24 year old meeting with the recruits.
