    Matt Abdelmassih a new assistant?

    According to this tweet...

    JohnnyJungleSTJ Dave Krupinski



    Congrats to former #stjbb manager Matt Abdelmassih @mabde who will be named Thursday as an assistant coach under Fred Hoiberg at Iowa State


    Chris brought up his name before, if true I like this hire because he'll actually be able to get out and recruit New York for us where he has a lot of connections.

    I'll trust Fred's decision here. Even the best coaches had to start somewhere.

    If you don't think this is a good hire, you are off your meds. Some of the best players to wear the Cardinal and Gold came from the east coast and since Morgan's departure, we haven't exactly had a pipeline there. Matt will be able to recruit now that he is an assistant.

    It's clear we want a pipeline in New York, this would only enhance those chances. I like it.

    How does this make any sense? He's never coached, as he? He was a student manager at St. John's.
    Doesn't Fred need someone who has basketball experience via playing or coaching?

    Who says he won't get that guy with the other assistant opening?

    Essentially, this replaces McRoy, who's job was to recruit. The position left vacated by Lutz will be filled by someone more experienced.

    The only problem is that he is an extremely green coach. TJ and Fred can recruit. They've shown that. Lutz brought a lot to the coaching aspect and adding Matt adds basically nothing coaching-wise to a head coach with only 1 year under his belt. Who is Fred going to learn from? I'm not a fan.

    Come on now. It's far more fun to meltdown and act irrational.

    My hope for the other spot is Jim Boylen, but somebody else with that amount of experience would work too.

    You realize there is another assistant opening, don't you? McRoy didn't do any coaching either.

    Sorry, my bad.
