    Memphis to hire dad of 3 elite basketball recruits

    http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...ssistant-coach

    I guess that's one way to recruit.

    I'm shocked, can't believe this would happen.

    Re: Memphis to hire dad of 3 elite basketball recruits

    one thing that is different (I think anyway), is this dad is a HS head coach that is successful. He also has raised/trained three elite basketball recruits in his sons.

    Re: Memphis to hire dad of 3 elite basketball recruits

    if he helped train those 3 elite players, he was doing something right. Maybe he deserves a job?

    Re: Memphis to hire dad of 3 elite basketball recruits

    I understand the concept of bringing in this dad so his kids will follow, but I can't see how this wouldn't be awful for team chemistry.

    Re: Memphis to hire dad of 3 elite basketball recruits

    This move may or may not be above board, but is there another sport as shady as basketball?

    AAU squads and their coaches filtering players to teams, handlers, NBA guys refusing to report after trades (and then getting a payoff ), the one and done rule, etc

    I could be wrong but my impression is there's a whole lot of room for shenanigans. (Probably true for all sports on some level)

    Yeah, it definitely looks a little bit shady but I don't have a huge issue with it. The guy has a good track record and was being looked at by other schools already.

    Re: Memphis to hire dad of 3 elite basketball recruits

    At least his Dad played and coached basketball. And they didn't move his Dad from some random town. This one you can at least justify.

    Re: Memphis to hire dad of 3 elite basketball recruits

    What a terrible move by the dad. Using your kids to further your own career. As a father, I would think your primary goal would be to help your kids make the best decision for the basketball and personal futures. Now, you've put pressure on them to go to Memphis. I guess this isn't the first time a parent has used their children to advance their own career and fatten up their own wallet.
