    Congrats to Coach Hardy. Always feel better when an AC leaves for a HC position as opposed to another AC position.

    Hope we can keep Reveno, but that becomes more difficult with what he's done with our bugs

    It's pretty rare that a coach of any sort doesn't have his bachelors, at minimum. Many often have Masters' degrees.

    Yeah. If, for no other reason, all HC jobs require a Bachelor's at minimum. Since most Asst's aspire to be a HC, may as well have the degree requirement covered.

    One obscure name with Calipari connections I was thinking about was Rod Strickland who was last at FIU or something.

    Could open a spot for a Mr. Hayes if UGA doesn't retain.[/QUOTE]

    No, not happening!

    Congrats to Coach Hardy! Hope he knocks the ball out of the park. Always good to see ACs getting opportunities as HC. Helps attract the next good up and coming ACs

    And it's being spun that way...

    I want to say that having a college degree is a requirement. I seem to recall several years ago before Fox was hired at UGA, Dominique Wilkens expressed interest in the position however could not apply because he didn't have his degree.

    That's pretty cool about Luke Walton. During the NBA lockout season he was an assistant for Memphis, but he ended up going back to the NBA and playing for another year or two after the lockout.

    Rumor has it that Orkin has made an offer that he is mulling over.

    Who or what is "Orkin" and who is "he"?

    Congrats to him. I agree with those that say it's good to have AC's take head coaches jobs because it means they did something right and it makes it easier to get other quality assistants. But that's in general. IMO this is bad for us because in the middle of a rebuild you want as much consistency in a staff as possible and we already lost one assistant. Now we'll be in the middle of a rebuilding process with two new assistants. Just makes it a bit harder and I would have rather we could have made it 3 or 4 years without the turnover so that we could be more at the end of the rebuild but it is what it is.

    I heard that rumor too. Sounds like his passion is pest control. Gotta follow your heart...

    It's too bad that former UT head coach Donnie Tyndall has an NCAA 10 year show cause penalty(that runs until April 7,2026) he could use another job;)

    I agree that he doesn't currently and may never deserve a spot on the GT staff.

    I think Jack could be an NBA HC or exec when he's done. He's not going to just be a college asst.

    Not that I'm downing the position. I just think Jack has set himself up to have bigger fish to fry.

    I think Charlton-to-GT is more likely than Jack-to-GT (as an asst.) and I think Charlton isn't coming.

    Maybe we can we get Bobinski to recommend some assistants for us?

    That may be TIC, but you make a point. IIRC, Bobinski helped CJP quite a bit in recruiting his staff here. I hope that either CJP learned a lot, or TS can help, or preferably both.
