    Rutter leaving?

    Was out with some friends last night and one friend, who is a Drake alum, said Coach Rutter is joining the new Drake staff. I don't see anything official on it so I was wondering if anyone here had heard anything. Not surprised, if true. Rutter was too qualified for his Director of Operations role with us.

    Re: Rutter leaving?

    Googled "Drake message board" and found that they do have one (who knew?). There is one post in a thread about their new coach...

    Hearing that Jeff Rutter, DBO for Hoiberg at ISU may be joining Ray's staff at Drake as a coach........

    Ray Giacoletti is our new head coach...

    who knew Drake had enough fans for a message board?!?

    Really big loss with Rutter leaving. I think he probably helped Hoiberg as much as anyone the last few years. Hopefully, Hoiberg is even more ready to go on his own.

    Re: Rutter leaving?

    Rutter is a great guy as well as coach (technically not a coach in his current role). Will be missed for sure.

    However, great opportunity to bring someone new in with some recruiting connections ;)

    Re: Rutter leaving?

    This sounds retarted, but why not bring in someone like Brackins for recruiting....Young guy, has great connections on the West Coast. Why the hell not? Doesn't need to coach, just recruit.

    Rutter wasn't recruiting for Iowa State. The guy that replaces him won't be either.

    Re: Rutter leaving?

    Did Rutter do much recruiting for the previous staff, when he was an assistant? Obviously, he's not doing any now as the DOBO.

    Did the NCAA up the number to 4 assistants can be on the road?
    Rutter may not have been on the road, but he was involved in scouting (tapes) to determine who we should be recruiting. Plus, it is all about connections, so even if the new staff member cannot travel the hire will be big for recruiting.

    Any regular assistant is going to do some recruiting. I think Luca might have been a guy Rutter was the guy on. But he wasn't a so-called recruiting assistant.

    Right before McDermott left, he hired Nurse and Grayer and Rutter became the DOB. He kept that position under Hoiberg.

    Rutter has been up for a few small school head coaching the last couple of years and i think his son has graduated from high school, so this might be a time when he wants to get back into it again.

    IIRC, Rutter was the first coach, assistant or otherwise, who offered Royce White a scholarship. I think I remember Royce saying something about that.

    Re: Rutter leaving?

    Maybe we can hire Fran McCaffery for the job?


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.
