Coach Hurley Stay Here!!!
This is Paul writing this....I figure Jim Shorts, being the play-by-play voice of the Rams is too close to the situation to comment freely so....as a basketball fan... I am here to beg Coach Hurley to STAY HERE!!!
News broke yesterday that he was up for the jobs at both Pittsburgh and U Conn. Looks like Pitt is out; up side is that they ARE in the ACC. Down side is that they went 0-18 in the ACC!!! That's a rebuilding project that might take longer than the patience of an Athletic Director on the hot seat... not a good situation.
U. Conn has a better chance but there are a couple of reasons the job would suck. The conference blows, the schools are spread out all across the country with no rivalries. When UConn left the Big East they lost their soul.
AND you'd have to be in an office across the hallway from the insufferable Gino Auriemma, coach of the women's team.
Stay in Rhode Island and you are OWNING a program you resurrected! Just some objective advice for Coach Hurley..
PS- We love you!!!
