Why does his associate head coaches keep leaving. This is the second one...Roux and now Hughes.

Um, because they are very good and get offers from programs that can pay them a higher salary?
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

It's an interesting decision, that's for sure. Hopefully it pays off!

I care.

I think this is a good move. There has been substantial progress since Dawley left and there is an actual identity for the program IMO. I'm really excited for this season and expect all this progress to continue.

Tory seems like a great guy and with the Champions Center should be able to build a Top 4 program in the A10. I couldnt tell you who the womens coach was when I went to UMass 1980-84. Around 1998 I went to a speech Bruiser Flint did and womens coach Joanie Obrien made a speech as well. Seemed like she really cared. I know she had some issues during her tenure. One other memory was the crowd stormed the court after a big win in the Mullins Center circa 1995 and Coach Cal grabbed the PA mic and screamed "GET OFF THE FLOOR THE WOMEN HAVE A GAME HERE LATER". The crowd scattered like Moses commanding the Red Sea. Go UMass
