    Garns, I wouldn't mind him, but you've got to be careful when looking to the Gulf South or Peach Belt for coaches. Our results when hiring those coaches across sports in athletics are mixed.

    his BIO is awesome but I’m not sure he’d leave there to come to this basketball powerhouse program. Heck their gym is nicer than ours, he has it made there and Crawford coming back for two seasons. At least he’d be a HC that knows what to do with a REAL big man. To me this is the key to GS moving to next level. Recruit wide bodies/girth, slow the ball down some and bang the paint and boards.

    Is there a particular conference we’ve poached coaches from in the past that hasn’t provided mixed results?

    Have we hired a DI HC in any sport who was a dud?

    How many D1 HCs have we hired?

    On the other hand, how many D2 coaches have had success here?

    I can think of two.

    Chad Callihan (Volleyball) came from App State where he was head coach. Probably the best coach in program history and built up the team Dustin Wood won the SoCon championship with. His last season in 2012 was still the top win percentage in a season in program history second only to 2013.

    And of course, Willie Fritz.

    Small sample size, but you're not talking two average hires there.

    On the DII side:

    Chris Hatcher (Football): Most are probably familiar with that.
    Kip Drown (WBB): Had a good-looking resume on paper, didn't pan out.
    Kim Dean (softball): Strong record at Armstrong. Is doing fine, but probably not in any danger of losing her to some head coaching job.
    Anita Howard (WBB): Too early to tell, on the right track, though.

    We face more or less the same issue in coaching searches now, every time. We can hire somebody very attractive, maybe even black if we are lucky, and hope they have two or more good years before being hired away. (You could call that the Dell McGee Option Not Taken). Or we can look for somebody like Byington, a promising young assistant, probably not black, who might stay 5-6 years, less if he turns out to be a dud like TS. Does that sound accurate? Any corrections?
