    Drake set to hire new coach

    Looking at the guys past records beyond one season its a fairly mediocre resume. Havent seen any of his teams play though. Any one know if he pushes the tempo?

    I don't know anything about him but Drake fans aren't happy about this.

    Yeah, that is really poor form.

    The name is Ray Giacoletti, he's a Gonzaga assistant and former head coach at Utah.

    Drake hiring Ray Giacoletti is a coup for the Valley. Loss for Mark Few's staff at Gonzaga. Giacoletti never got his due at Utah.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    How thought Drake was going to get a name hire? And what were they smoking? It's Drake, for ****-sake.

    A former head coach and an assistant at arguably the top mid-major in MBB, seems like about as good as you're going to get at Drake.

    Re: Drake set to hire new coach

    He was great when he had Andrew Bogut at Utah...not so great when Bogut left for the NBA. I don't think he will have Andrew Bogut at Drake.

    Was Ray the coach at Utah when Will Clyburn was there?
