    I would have thought he would be able to find a job at a more high profile school.

    Hopefully we can get someone who knows how to run an offense.

    He was at Loyola Marymount last year. This is a higher profile.

    Waiting to see what happens with the top two assistants....if either of them leave, DoBO Sean Kearney can step right in.

    He favors an up-tempo style and he was the top asst./associate HC at Notre Dame, so he's got experience running a good offense.

    No. We're not. We love Coach A and what he did during his time here. We're also not going to pretend that he is a white knight in college basketball recruiting.

    I'm not holding anything against him. I was just responding to some of the hyperbole earlier in the thread. Hell, he was the lead recruiter for Spencer, wasn't he?

    No, Tom was the guy who spotted and kept in touch with Dre. Prioleau was SD's contact, as I recall.

    And he was responsible for us landing Donnie Boyce during his first time at Boulder.

    Spencer, Booker, and Dre will tell you he is the reason they are here - he was the reason for their commits if not the lead on paper.

    Coach A's legacy to me will always be when Jeff Bzdelik left for Wake Forest and Coach, unsure of his future with a new head coach coming in, continued to recruit for CU. Thanks in part to the contact Coach A had kept with Bzdelik target Andre Roberson, Dre signed his LOI to play for Tad Boyle a week and a half after Boyle's hire. I don't care too much about what happens with Haith or Tulsa but I thank Tom Abatemarco for all he did at CU and hope he continues finding jobs in a sport he loves to be around.

    No offense to Coach A, but I thought Boyle had a relationship with Roberson already from recruiting him to UNC. Nevertheless, Coach A was awesome and I loved his pre-game talks in the donor room.
