    What does everyone think of Dino Gaudio?

    I think a bigger name not a lot of people are talking about is Dino Gaudio. I was looking closer at him and he previously was the head coach (with little success) at Army (36-72 and Loyola (MD) (32-52). Obviously those are not very impressive stints. But when he took over at Wake Forest he had a lot of success. I don't know how involved he is in the recruiting part of it but they continually sign pretty solid classes. I would imagine he is at least a decent recruiter, since he was the top assistant under Skip Prosser. Now clearly, it is much easier to recruit to Wake, who has a long history of success in the ACC and with players making it in the NBA.

    I was just wondering what other people know about him, and if they think he would seriously consider ISU.

    Re: What does everyone think of Dino Gaudio?

    Seems like he recruited pretty well, but Wake under achieved each year he was the head coach, especially during conference play. I think he's a solid coach but not someone that would generate the excitement that this program needs.

    Re: What does everyone think of Dino Gaudio?

    The fact that he was fired after having a decent record, including getting Wake to #1 at one point, and recruiting very well, and then was replaced by Bzdelik who hadn't taken Colorado anywhere nor recruited all that well, raises a big red flag for me. there must be more to his firing.

    Re: What does everyone think of Dino Gaudio?

    I was excited by him as well, but from what people have said he is a very good recruiter, but can't coach 'em.

    Re: What does everyone think of Dino Gaudio?

    The guy was in probably the no. 1 recruiting hotbed in all of college basketball and has underwhelming results to show for it. It'll be a hell of a lot harder to recruit to Ames - I just don't like the prospects.

    Re: What does everyone think of Dino Gaudio?

    I don't like him. Underachieved at Wake, wouldn't be familiar with our recruiting challenges, was replaced by junk.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Re: What does everyone think of Dino Gaudio?

    The guy was Prosser's main recruiter and apparently that is all he could do. I have a good friend who is a Wake alum and according to him, he could not coach his way out of a paper bag...

    I think he was fired.

    Re: What does everyone think of Dino Gaudio?

    I know he was fired, but so was Billy Gillespie and it seems like a lot of people like him. All I'm saying is I can see some similarities between Wake and Iowa State. We have Texas and Kansas, they have UNC and Duke. If he could get some recruits I could get on board. But maybe we should look elsewhere (if we are even looking at all) if, as you guys say, he can't coach.

    I also don't get the argument that because he was replaced by Bzdelik that that means Gaudio is terrible. A replacement coach does not tell anything about the former coach in my opinion.

    The only similarity between ISU and Wake is that they both have basketball programs. They are worlds apart in every other conceivable category...

    I personally would love Gaudio. Good recruiter, and knows how to coach at a BCS program.
