When Benson was hired, my first questions were: (a) purely a business guy without a resume anchored in athletics?, and ( why leave a school which was/is on an upward trajectory (granted, he had a l

I'm just ready to see the press release that the school and CB have executed an extension agreement so we can move on from this.

Just put ink to paper already...

 

News day is saying $8 million over 5 years. Serious money for someone with one championship and a blowout loss in the tourney.

Where did Piekell come from before SB? A big school?

 

Played and assistant at UConn, then assistant at Yale, Central Connecticut and George Washington

Ah UConn.

 

Brown has no storied program behind him playing or coaching, wonder about that impact with him getting/not getting large offers. Coaching is who you know and who you can help out. (Just look at Browns current staff)

Ny Post article on Pikiel's hiring is hilariously bad. It says he turned SB "to a mid-major power" And "the America East's premier program the last five years". Apparently the bozo who wrote it couldn't be bothered to see who won the championship the other four years!

Times Useless or NY Post no wonder newspapers are losing money they can't even research things that can be googled in 5 seconds.

On a side note GDG was curious Pikiell's record vs. Browns knowing that we had a few losing seasons here and there:

 

Since Steve Pikiell took over Stony Brook, Pikiell is 192-156, 1 NCAA and Brown is 207-152, 5 NCAAs.

 

Lucky Brown hadn't taken any offers. Here's hoping they sign him up for a few more years.

To be honest I wouldn't put much into comparing overall records. If you want to compare NCAAs that's another story.

 

Plus, SB is in a bigger media market so when you win here you'll get coverage from all the NY newspapers. Piekiell also has a pimp in Jim Calhoun.

And everyone knows how hard it is to win mid major conference tournaments so these big name schools look more at the regular season championships. He won't need to win a conference tournament at Rutgers to bring them to the dance. Going .500 in conference would prob get them in or on the bubble

Patsos gets a 2 year extension through 20-21.

 

Coach Brown is entering the second to last year of his contract. Benson needs to lock him up now.

 

Patsos' extension formally announced. Still nothing from the university on Coach Brown.

FWIW Brown and Benson had lunch at ATSP today. A third guy was with them that I didn't get close enough to recognize.

 

I've seen Will at the Pub often with the coaching staff, but not Benson.
