Demons Abyss / Re: Grade of the hire
« Last post by dive55 on April 15, 2021, 01:25:34 PM »
At this time, I am giving it a D. Not that I don't feel that it is a decent hire. My grade is based solely on what has transpired since the hire. Which is nothing. Given the defections, I would have expected some staff announced so that I know that TS is trying to put a team together.  So far nothing but silence. I hope they are more organized behind the scenes.

Oh come on, their instagram post today shows all that they have been up to and how great it has been.

I gave it a C.  I'll freely admit that I don't know what TS brings to the table and all his accolades as a great recruiter and X & O's guy may be 100% accurate.

However, my grade is based on the fact that I don't trust that DePaul is capable of finding a diamond in the rough and making a great hire of a lifetime assistant that appears has never really been a head coaching candidate any time previously.

Would love to be proven wrong.

I gave it a straight C. Top Assistant at a P5 school who has some recruiting chops but no HC experience at 51.

I say a B...we have always wanted a recruiter or a Xís and Oís type...
Hard to find both attributes in one guy...especially one willing to come to DePaul....seems like Peevy weighs recruiting heavily...Iím cool with that...
That said...Letís go!!!

Erbs, to your point Payne is done...we move on. Iím hearing talk of Scheyer. Screw that I donít want that. Gates I believe can move a needle. I have a few others in mind that I would like but VU gave some valid points against Stoudamire. Which I agree with. Marquette got their guy and Iím cool with that. But Texas sounds like they will pressing hard for Underwood which puts a little more pressure on DePaul to identify and get their guy.

A lot of Kenny Payne chatter but sounds like he turned us down.  Oh well, let's move on.  I don't care if they get an unknown coach.  But I want some one who CAN coach.  Someone who can develop talent.  I know everyone is short on patience but I think we need to be patient with the search and patient with whomever is hired.  Peevy isn't JLP which is obviously great.  Let's give him some time and see what happens.  Can it get worse than the JLP era?  It's not likely.
