    Nurse offered job

    KCCI "reporting" that Nurse has been offered the ISU associate head coaching job. They're reporting what we've all known for weeks.

    Re: Nurse offered job

    They are "reporting" it because we all know that the network news channels are where the real breaking news is. You are just one of those young whipper snappers fiddling with that Internet thing, which is clearly a phase that will pass. You probably can't even get a press pass to the boys high school tournament.

    He better take it since he's already discussed it publicly, otherwise it'll be another unwanted publicity for the program.

    Glad to hear it's official. Let's get him out there on the recruiting trail!

    Re: Nurse offered job

    Can this possibly be a step up? Are D-League coaches just not paid that much? Seems strange with everyone expecting Gmac to be around just one more year.

    yup, it'll be good to have this kind of experience. Another thing: if GMac is let go and no one wants to come here next year, he can interview for the job.

    Maybe the plan is to get him in the door to hopefully take over the head coach position after Gmac departs.

    I have no facts to base that on just me thinking out loud.

    Agree. He looks like a great hire, but since this has been rumored for several weeks, I can't imagine he would turn the job down now. That would be an unnecessary kick in the nuts to have us be publically turned down instead of a private 'no thanks".

    These ideas have certainly been around here since it was "annoucned" that he would interview.

    Re: Nurse offered job

    If he can be an X's and O's guy and get some good assistants to help with recruiting I wouldn't have a problem with it. However, I don't really know anything about Nurse's background, etc.
