Well, It seems logical to think Iona people didn't hire Pitino, without having a plan. They could have hired a Cluess assistant or a Big East assistant, but they hired a guy with a lot of personal and professional baggage, and got roundly criticized for doing so. I doubt they would be happy with the status quo. They must believe he can significantly elevate the talent level and the OOC opponents, and the school's profile, otherwise why bring him in?

You're giving Iona way too much credit. This was a desperation reach job. Did you read the interviews with the AD? Did that sound like they did any due diligence or had any kind of plan?

LMU is hiring Marquette associate head coach Stan Johnson, source told @Stadium.

Apparently Johnson was M’Q’s main recruiter

All this Iona talk and I remember watching Warren Isaac play in the old MSG, maybe against Duquesne with Willie Somerset.

Taller and not as strong or tricky as Guerin. First organized BB I saw in person was old pro doubleheader at MSG on 50th St. Pre Wilt Warriors vs. Celtics and Knicks vs. Pistons with George Yardley. Three teams played one kind of basketball and the Celtics were already in the new era that lasted until the 3Pt line. Guerin was old school. Isaac was more running game.

We're getting a real history lesson in old school NYC hoops. This is great stuff!

Don't recall if any posts have alluded to this but strong rumors that Neubauer may be out at Fordham.
