    Now the difficult part of it begins.

    The sad part is over.

    Now the tough part of finding the right coach that will pan out begins.

    I just hope JP his another one out of the park, like McDermott.

    I seriously doubt it. Most coaches will not take a job unless they can put together their own staff.

    Re: Now the difficult part of it begins.

    arent they all 1 year contracts for assistants? If thats right they will probably just get paid for the rest of the year, whenever their fiscal year ends.

    Re: Now the difficult part of it begins.

    JP has a plan. That's a given. He probably already knows who he wants.

    You can burn me at the stake, but JP's current hires aren't proven and we won't know for years if they were good hires or not.

    We let a darn good coach go today for all the right reasons. Hopefully we get a replacement who can work half as hard as Mac did.

    I'll be on a stake right next to you!

    You never know. 5 years from now we may look back at BVDV and say those were the good years. I highly doubt it, but only time will tell.

    Re: Now the difficult part of it begins.

    Actually Gene Smith was the good years. However I like Jamie Pollard too. He seems like a good cross between Gene and Van De Velde. Good personality and good money man.

    We won't know for years however if he's been a good A.D.

    You may be right, but we've got to at least give this a shot. We know what we'll have if we don't.

    Agree 100%, but as the quote goes, "lets not **** each others ***** just yet."
