I like Times Union's article, "Coaching Needs Greatest Call" (Jan. 30, 2013, at 10:12PM), about Coach Abe:

It's a good story but...I don't like the talk of Coach Abe leaving to go anywhere.


I certainly don't think she deserves to go to a lower school either after the job she is doing :D

Sharessa Richards was not ranked at all and has been terrific so far this season.


I took the time to go to the UVM game, and I walked away highly impressed with Ms. Richards. She ran like a gazelle, and always was involved in the play.

If Coach Abe stays, and Sharessa keeps developing, I am going to make a seriously bold/stupid prediction, and say that Ebony's new record could be in danger.

Find this thread in three years. I will either be an idiot or a genius, but that's the way I roll.

 


Usually the former with you... :-)

 

 

It seems so obvious now, with all of the success that Shereesha has had, but with her joining the 2,000 point club today it seems as good of a time as any to bump this thread up and taunt ClickClick with it.

Pete Iorizzo: Will UAlbany hoops success lead to coach leaving?

Once again Pete's insight is amazing - Mid-major team wins a first round game - NEWS FLASH EVERYBODY - Other schools may offer Coach a job.


GREAT DECADE TO BE A GREAT DANE

Pete should look at our Athletic Department and realize that coaches like to stay. I think the last one to leave was the Vollyball coach at Dayton.

According to the article she makes $208k.  Wisconsin is a pretty big program and they were paying their coach $300k according to the article.  Maybe she can get a raise here and stay?  The line below is true though.  

 

Still, it's hard to imagine a fierce competitor like Abrahamson-Henderson wouldn't be interested in an opportunity to increase her salary from $208,000, compete for a national championship and bring her message of empowering young women to a bigger audience.

According to that article she has 4 years remaining, which means she received an extension of at least one year after last season.

YES, the Wisconsin coach made $300,000 but is now without a job.  That is the life of big conference basketball.  Coach Abe deserves a raise, I would suggest something similar to Coach Brown and don't forget the pressure is a little less and the NYS pension is huge.  Great season, I wish I was young enough to hug all those ladies but I would probably get arrested.

UCF has a press conference for 1 PM today, supposedly to announce Coach Abe as their new women's basketball coach. I'm hoping this is an April Fools thing.

If another school is doing the press conference, I doubt it. I don't see how they would or why they would. Sucks.

EDIT: Nothing is coming up on Google. Where did you see this?

Twitter is always the best resource.  Just searched "Coach Abe" and it popped up.  She's gone. 

Incidentally, that's also a good way to scoop Verbal Commits.  Just type in Ualbany offer and you get the info.  I do it a few times a week.
