Hire guys who care about the program. (BU loves "loyalty").

By my math - 3 left the program, 3 came in.

Or to go into more detail - 3 assistant coaches left, 1 support staff moved to assistant coach, 2 assistant coaches came in, and 1 support staff came in. So where do we have an opening exactly?

It doesn’t seem clear whether Davis is taking Geoffs spot or if that’s still open and they are saving it for Randle/LaTulip/Dee/Deon/etc. Maybe you know?
Well it won't be Dee Brown and Deon has said he likes spending time with his children. I don't know anything about Deon's marital status, but if his daughters live in the Chicago area, I'd be surprised if he moved to Champaign. Also, he has the broadcasting gig, but I don't have any idea what his day job is.

Is there anything stopping them from creating more support staff positions? Not saying they are looking to do that, but just curious if there are any caps on that sort of stuff
I don't think there is a cap on staff positions. Staffers can't recruit off campus and they can't be on the practice floor. They can sit in the stands and take notes during practice, but the NCAA prohibits staffers from doing any coaching. Depending on the experience of the staffer would determine the tasks that Underwood would assign. I think Alexander probably did a lot of game planning and had his ear during games, but if a coaching novice was hired as Asst. to the HC, he might be more of note taker and observer.

It's also nice to have another 6'9" guy around who was still playing professionally a couple years ago. It's not always easy to give big men the type of looks they will get in games when running individual drills. Mike can probably give them some tips on how to make volume rebounding look "effortless".

Thank you!

I don’t think there is - I was just curious why everyone is convinced we are hiring someone and just trying to figure out who when we already have the same number as last year. Was there news that we were still looking to fill a position?
