Supposed to be a good - or at least relentless recruiter.
I read Fawcetts article about who they pursued and this hire. I also saw posters on another site super mad at this hire. Personally, I have no idea If this is a good hire. How could I know? I have zero knowledge of assistant b ball coaches anywhere. Nor does anyone else. I do know that I am a huge critic of Mike white. But I have seen now 3 (or is it 4?) of his UF assistants get head coaching gigs. To me that tells me White is a good judge of assistant coaches so I will give him the benefit of the doubt on his new hires. M
Andy Kennedy would have been an interesting hire.
Well, yeah, but that was always going to be a long shot. Why would Kennedy want to leave the head coaching job at a decent UAB program for an assistant's job? Same with Brett Nelson, although Nelson may have been more interested because of his UF allegiance.
Glad this is over. Time to see results.
For the amount of time it took to come up with this hire doesn’t make sense to me. I was expecting a more impressive hire than someone he had back at Louisiana Tech. Wash, rinse, repeat. This upcoming season is gonna be pivotal for White at Florida. Either show that the program is improving or that mediocre is the high water mark for a White ran basketball program. Speaking for only myself, this will be the last season that I will watch Gator basketball if White finishes fifth or worse in conference until he’s gone. Too frustrating to watch it go downhill from where Donovan built it.
He probably went after a splashier hire that didn’t work out and had to hire the best available option in a hurry before recruiting starts.
I agree that is how it appears.
Wow. You really set the bar high.
You know we finished 5th last year right?
An underwhelming hire by Mike White. I'm shocked.
Yes, and that’s why I’m giving White one more season and then I’m done if he doesn’t do better.
Uh.... But you said that if he did just the same next year you would be ok with it...
I'm sure the loss of your fandom will be felt Gator nationwide.
Miskdeen did not coach under Mike White at Louisiana Tech.
Has trouble with Cincinnati cab drivers.
Less than the pain that I get out of watching White coach.
I don’t recall saying that. Not satisfied with first weekend exits from the NCAA tournament, which is what we can expect out of White about 90% of the time.
You are right. He coached under one of White’s previous assistants. Color me unimpressed.
Boy this thread turned into a who cares thread for me.
