    Re: Jeff Grayer New Assistant

    The best part is that he is a graduate of Iowa State University, and familiar with the program and extremely proud of its history. He's anxious to get started working with coach McDermott to help the Cyclones regain national prominence on the basketball court.

    Cool. Now go recruit someone that plays basketball identically to the way you played basketball.

    With as little excitement as I can possibly muster up, I am actually excited/please with these two new hires...

    I don't want to hyjack the thread but with this hire and the Nurse hire what does this mean for Mac. Hopefully he turns things around and it is a non issue but don't you think this buys him more time because they are not going to want to fire these guys after one season, and to get a new head coach you certainly don't want to have to appoint his assistants.

    When someone makes the statement. "I don't want to (fill in the Blank) but..."

    It usually means they are going to do that thing, regardless.

    I have no idea what kind of recruiter/coach this guy is but its cool just having a legend around the program.

    Re: Jeff Grayer New Assistant (Official)

    Yeah this too has me excited.

    I realize he probably doesn't have the "resume" some were hoping for in terms of coaching but he's a Cyclone legend that WANTS to be at Iowa State - those are 2 good things; 2 positives for us to chew on :)

    This might be the shot in the arm the program needs, it might not. Let's HOPE it is.

    Welcome aboard Jeff!

    Re: Jeff Grayer New Assistant (Official)

    Also, anyone who did not think that this hire was in part a PR move should read posts 1-12. It's clear that a motivating factor for this hire was to make McD "popular by association".
