    Greg Gard - the next ISU coach?

    Makes more sense each passing day as the current regime slowly fades away:

    he comes highly recommended from Bo Ryan

    he gets a chance to coach at a major D1 school/conference

    we can get him on the cheap (anyone that grew up in Cobb, WI will gladly take the job for $500k a year.)

    So now Pollard is choosing GM's assistants?

    Why not offer him 300K then? He makes about 185K now so that is a huge increase, I am sure he is just sitting around in Madison dying to be lowballed by Iowa State.

    he was offered 300 by Dayton a couple of years ago. it will take 500 to get him.

    Re: Greg Gard - the next ISU coach?

    Can we afford him since we need to save coin for the future buyout?

    I thought new Greg could come in as the assistant to know the players and then old Greg could leave midway through next season...

    Re: Greg Gard - the next ISU coach?

    I haven't allowed myself to think too much about potential candidates if/when the time comes for a change, but Gard is one guy who I would hope gets an interview.

    He's very highly regarded by Ryan, a man that JP has a lot of respect for. And if Gard's bio is any indication, he has a lot of the same qualities that Rhoads used to win JP over during his lengthy interview, namely a strict attention to detail and the ability to communicate it. Combine all this with JP's Wisconsin connections, and it would seem likely that the guy would get a look.

    "Greg is one of the most thorough and organized coaches I have ever been around," Ryan said. "His attention to detail and his ability to communicate that to the student-athletes separates him from other coaches."

    Gard is also their recruiting coordinator and does a lot of the scouting and game prep. The most obvious reservation I would have would be his playing style. Chances are it would reflect Ryan's, but I suppose you never know what you might get when a long-time assistant gets his chance to make all the calls.

    Re: Greg Gard - the next ISU coach?

    I kind of blame Bo Ryan for ISU's current MBB program. When Pollard was at UW, he saw what a succesful coach at a smaller in-state school can do when given the chance.

    Complete, total and utter speculation, but that's what I've always thought about the GMAC hire and why I kind of blame Bo, great coach that he is.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.
