    that is a surprise. guessing he wanted to be closer to family. i wonder if BF and co had to approve this, because I wonder if there would be a conference non-compete in a contract.

    If the decision for Easley to go was actually BF's, then there shouldn't be any problem. I guess this was the case, otherwise, BF wouldn't let him go to Okie State

    Does one season at Providence College really negate the fact that he spent 19 seasons at Okie State before coming to Iowa State? Why would Bill refuse to let Jack go back to Okie State, especially after what happened to their program in the last six months? Sometimes this kind of pettiness can sully your name in coaching circles.

    Besides, didn't KJ Kindler go right from Iowa State to OU? Why didn't JP stop her? That was a much bigger deal than Easley going back to Okie State. Kindler was ISU head coach, had no ties to OU and was even an ISU competitor and assistant coach.

    Unlike athletes, I don't think you can do anything to keep someone from going to a competitor as a coach.

    I assume there could be a "non-compete" clause, but apparently I'm wrong.

    Associate Head Coach here to Director of Player Development there. Doesn't even seem like a lateral move to me unless there is more that is not being said.

    So we're supposed to believe that his departure was announced two months ago just in case there was an opening at Oklahoma State or somewhere down there close to the family.

    Still think there's more here. Most job changes where someone is hunting a different job, the new job gets announced at the same time as the departure. We'll never know obviously, I just hate the BS that gets handed out as the "TRUTH" in the sports coaching world. Almost as bad as politics.

    I'm confused, why would you think when someone is let go that that would only take a better position than the one they lost? Perhaps one that pays less and has easier hours/less travel is a good choice for someone approaching retirement age?

    Congrats to Coach Jack, I hope you enjoy your new position! And also to Coach Kelsey, good luck every game but one next season. Your new boss just rose about six steps in most of our estimations, I'm sure.

    I believe that some states do not have a non-compete law. Don't know about either IA or OK.

    Losing Jack hurts us some. Losing him to OK State makes it worse. Going to need a really good hire if we are to wind up better than before he left.

    The Bolte hire surprised me somewhat considering she has little to no experience as anything but a player.
