Can this dude recruit top 200 kids? Can he build out his staff with coaches that can get in the door nd attract major talent?

My biggest questions surrounding this guy is why his entire coaching career has been at such a low level. If Roy Williams loves him so much why didn't he put him on his staff between his stops as an assistant at Elon, High Point and UNCG?

Why has has been stuck at UNCG for 10 years? I don't buy because he wanted the UNC job. They could have hired him away from anywhere. And he probably wouldn't have had a better shot at it had he left UNCG and proven himself elsewhere.

I will say this, like it not, if he doesn't have this team at 20 wins by year 3 at the latest then this basketball program will suffer. I hope they chose someone they expect can get this up and running quickly. Because that 5 1/2 year rebuild he did at UNCG aint going to cut it here.
Why was he stuck there for ten years? Bro hes only 38 lol. You act like hes in his 50s

I'm not sure what his age has to do with anything I said.

Did he spend 10 years as the HC at UNC Greensboro or not?

It has everything to do with it, hes young, hes building his skills and reputation. You think P5 schools out here hiring 32-33yr old coaches all the time? Think....

Yeah, he got the job unexpectedly mid-season at age 28, and frankly those first few years he was figuring out how to do the job and rebuilding an absolutely moribund program.

The past 5 years he has been building a resume and becoming a serious high-level candidate

A small story about a coach.

This is a guy with no ties to UC or the Greater Cincinnati area. At age 28, he got his first head coaching job. It took him a bit of time to figure out his identity, but by his early 30s he was clearly a coach on the rise. He won 20+ games 4 straight seasons with a mid-major that had previously been very bad for some time. He even got them into the NCAA tournament, although he did not win any games there.

In his late 30s, still one of the youngest coaches in college basketball and with zero career NCAA tournament wins, but a passion for the game and a love of defensive pressure, he was hired at UC.

Today he is one of the winningest coaches in NCAA history, and UC's all-time wins leader.

Let's just hope Wes doesn't sleep with any booster's wives or vomit on a cop at a DUI stop.

This is awesome, but part of me hopes Chad's sources are just trolling him.
