    Jim Boylen

    I would love to see this guy as a Cyclone assistant if he doesn't get a head job! He is a great recruiter and has ties in the Detroit area.

    (Sorry i didn't see the other thread can some one merge or delete this thread?)

    Re: Jim Boylen

    Would love to see this as well. Might as well get more Michigan State ties on this team.

    Re: Jim Boylen

    if we are going to hire a coach to bring in a player, I rather have a big shot blocker with a couple years left to play.

    How many big shot blockers were there last year? While we are making wish lists, does Fred have the number for Sullinger and Matta?


    Assuming that Boylen would be hire for that reason (which is unlikely), Clyburn would be better than any of the alternatives imo.

    Re: Jim Boylen

    I don't know that Boylen would be hired for that reason. It might be a nice bonus, but he would be hired because he was a fairly successful head coach who could fill the role that Lutz did. Although, I doubt as well as Lutz did.

    Re: Jim Boylen

    Boylen is a former HC, plus had assistant experience at Mich State and the NBA. I don't think we'd hire him just to get a transfer, although that would certainly be a nice side benefit.

    Obviously we'd be lucky to get Boylen with or without Clyburn.

    I almost think Keno Davis would be just as good as Boylen. ISU plays an up-tempo game and Keno has actually recruited Michigan quite well even at Providence. Its not as ridiculous as you think...

    I hadn't thought of Keno, but would definitely support that idea. He obviously has some Iowa ties that could come in helpful in recruiting in-state athletes and learned under his old man who has been around the block.

    Re: Jim Boylen

    I don't really have a whole lot of desire to get Keno. I'm not sure why.

    But I don't think he would help with in-state recruiting. And I think we need someone with more expirence then he has.

    We have two slots open, don't we? How about both?

    Part of me is wishing this had happened a week earlier so we could have had a shot at Jeff Capel.

    It's comical that you come accross like you want Boylen for any other reason than to help land Clyburn. If Fred wanted to sell a coaching job to get players he'd be better served with an AAU coach.

    Cydkar, this whole thread is a fail.

    Re: Jim Boylen

    I'm lost. I think the notion that Fred would hire Boylen to get Clyburn is a complete fail. Hiring Boylen to be an assistant wouldn't be a fail. Well, it could be, but I don't know enough about him to say.
