View Full Version : Losing an Assistant Coach

I have a question that I've thought since the season began. How much does it mean to lose two assistant coaches in four years, more recently, Leon Rice. I know each coach has a role in the teams success / failures, but could losing an assistant coach cause disruption in team chemistry, performance and confidence?

That is the real only significant change outside of Matt Bouldin graduating. We've lost big name players in the past and followed up with a great year. So I'm curious what your thoughts are on Leon's departure and it's effect.

Like you say those were the only two major changes, and if I had to guess: loosing Rice was worse than loosing Bouldin.

Not exactly to your question, but, last night, while painfully watching the second half and seeing Few giving up, there was a shot of the GU bench and all the freakin' coaches! How many do we have? What do they do? Jeez there is a lot of them.

It was an ugly night for sure, but, jeez, what are those guys doing?

Donnie is a big man coach? Our bigs are worse than last year. All except Sam.

RayG, defensive specialist. What defense?

Few, offensive genius. What offense?

I am not giving up on this team or coaches, but sheesh. Puking it up at one our rival's own gym. No heart.

I don't care if we win anything. I was just hoping to see some good basketball and kids that play with heart.

Completely agree with this. No off-season player development, lack of motivation, mental lapses, etc. are all linked to the loss of Leon Rice.
