Coach Brown

Recommended Posts

Grasso seems to make the most sense. Becker isn't as far fetched as you might think..though. Could more than triple Becker's pay. Much better facilities. And has family from CT. Has the HC experience over Grasso..too.

Per sources, Quinnipiac coaching search has narrowed to four names: John Becker, Baker Dunleavy, Jared Grasso and Travis Steele. #MAACHoops

 

 

Wouldn't be surprised if it's Becker. Might help us in the AE getting that guy out. He's one of the only guys who can beat Brown regularly.

 

But glad Brown is going to be here still :P

 

 

The league needs good coaches...I hope he stays.

This league needs a lot more than good coaches!

I can see that side of it, but I'd rather UVM get a worse coach and not stand in our way of conference championships. Eventually we'll get a conference upgrade if we win 10 of the next 15 :P.

But it helps raise the profile of the league. What if you had 4 teams regularly better than 125 in rpi? Instead of half the league with coaches like Gallagher.

Is there a chance that Brown has made it known he likes working at UA, living in Albany and his family likes it there? Maybe saying something like, it would take X dollars or this level in order to leave. I have no idea if that is even something possible but just something I thought about.

That's exactly what it is...he's been pretty vocal that he doesn't want to leave. Now, as the rest of us who toil in sweat making a buck, someone backs up the truck you go or at least listen.

Was hoping , and still am, that this new AD would do something for him and the programs . He really deserves it ... Really put some decent money into the program ...I know we are making small improvements ...I guess I'm hoping for more !

We are absolutely, without question, factually based, looking into a full gut renovation of SEFCU. They are in the process of fundraising. Many rumors/discussions on what the gut will look like, including flipping the court direction.

 

Add in the new scoreboard for next year...and its slowly but surely for this program. It may take 2 years...or 5 years...but there will be a change. And when that happens, look out. Albany is a very easy place to recruit kids, and he's a phenomenal coach. Much like Bob Ford...(well, Coach Ford had it much worse with University Field), Coach Brown does a whole lot with so-so facilities. When he gets those improvements, we will be beyond solid.

Thanks for the post . I truly do hope you are right. I'm hoping that someone will give huge money for the naming rights and we can move up from there. Hope to hear more about these plans soon!

Like all of you, I am hoping WB stays at UA until he retires. He's still s relatively young man, so that's probably too much to ask for. He can still live well on his current income. Wife happy, family happy, coach happy. But there's money and there's MONEY. Life changing money. Like say $6 M for 5 years. Life changing money brings many life changes that are not so nice. Like maybe having to move some place that's not so great. Plus increased money brings increased pressure and lots of it, and alumni and booster demands. It all has to get weighed.
