    Fred's Staff

    Scott Howard, NBA scout for Michael Jordan and the Bobcats was on 2 Guys names Jim tonight. He said he spoke with Fred last night and pretty well knows the staff Fred is trying to put together. Howard said if it all comes together it will be an OUTSTANDING staff! That got my attention. Anxious to see how soon Fred can put the staff together. The Tour starting in a couple of weeks should be a lot of fun this year!


    If Iowa plays Iraq I wear a turbin to the game!

    I have no doubt Freddie will get the people around him that he needs to succeed. He knows everyone it sounds like and it also sounds like everyone wants him to succeed.

    Fred is like best friends with everyone in the NBA

    Re: Fred's Staff

    He has his recruiter...He needs someone with coaching experience. I am hoping for someone from the NBA.

    Re: Fred's Staff

    Ideally, I'd like the 'seasoned vet' coach to be a college guy, but that might be a lot to hope for.

    One thing is for sure, if Fred can build the type of relationships with the recruits, coaches, parents, AAU coaches, etc that he seems to do with just about everyone else he meets, then we should get in on some good players.

    Re: Fred's Staff

    If he pilfers the NBA of an assistant coach, It makes me a little nervous. The college game is not the same as the NBA? I'm confident he will get what he needs.

    I had to google that to see what it meant.

    Re: Fred's Staff

    I hear Larry Brown is jockeying with Flip Saunders for the last spot on the staff.

    Bill Cartwright is also in the mix. As soon as Fred decides who it is I hear an announcement will be made.

    Fred was a scout for the NBA so he knows what the college game is all about.

    Re: Fred's Staff

    ...wouldn't it be something if Fred could get HB out of his contract with N. Carolina? I know it won't happen, but what a paradox that would be!

    Roy would never let HB out

    yes, you're right!
    Right when I read that, not getting to the part in your () yet, I was going to say that was my line.

    Unless he hires Roy Williams as his assistant. That would really help in recruiting top talent from Iowa which Roy has quite a bit of experience in.

    Kelvin Sampson could make the transition.
