    Sources: Matt Abdelmassih to be hired as an assistant

    This was floating around on Twitter last night and I threw it out there on Saturday. I now have two sources close to the program telling me that Matt Abdelmassih will be promoted from a operations job to an assistant coaching position later this week.

    Personally, I LOVE this hire and I'll tell you why in a column later this week or next. Pretty swamped right now with the Clyburn news, along with spring football stuff.

    Outstanding!!!

    Might as well cap the day off by hiring Larry Brown to be an assistant.

    This really is a fun afternoon to be a Cyclone. Thanks for the great work, Chris!!

    -Must be a couple recruits we really want that he has very good relationships with.
    -Should be easier to fill his spot with an assistant-level coach when you can show you will promote from with-in.

    Does he have a nickname? Could we call him Coach Massey?

    Yes. Matt was the big reason that Sledge ended up in Ames. I imagine he'll take over Okoro's recruitment with Fred once this becomes official.

    I sure hope this is to replace McRoy and not Lutz? If this is the replacement for Lutz, I'm extremely disappointed. Not a good hire at all. If it is for McRoy, then I'm all for it.

    This is for McRoy. I think the next hire will be Mann and I would like that because he is experienced as an assistant and has good Detroit connections.

    Re: Sources: Matt Abdelmassih to be hired as an assistant

    Am I alone in thinking that Fred let McRoy go for the express purpose of promoting Abdelmassih?

    Pretty much has to be the case, IMO.

    I think in this change, we will start to see more players like Will Blalock and Curtis Stinson here again.
