Assistant coaching position

Some of the names being tossed about to replace Matt Grady on Marvin Menzies staff include former Duke and Syracuse assistant and Fairfield head coach Tim O'Toole and former Montana State head coach Mick Durham.


After looking him up, O'Toole stepped down at Fairfield in 2006 after eight years.Durham retired from coaching in 2006 after coaching at Montana State for 16 years.

While I think Matt Grady was a hard worker and has a good future ahead of him, I think bringing in a guy with head coaching experience is a good way to go. Menzies has a good mix of up and coming coaches already so adding a veteran guy could be a positive

Great job JG. Keep us in the loop. Although I can't agree that we have a good mix of up and coming coaches. Correct me if I'm wrong, but we have the old dude, and Pompey. Sounds like the new guy will be in the form of the old dude. No disrespect to the man. I just can't remember his name.

His name is John McMullen. Pompey is a key guy on the staff, but the young coaches I talked about are Paul Weir and Gerald Lewis, both of whom will probably have increased roles this season.

Wow what a moron the last guy was! The old guy? Word of advise don,t know.....don,t post! But anyway my thoughts on those two potentials are "get em if you can" from what I remember about these two either would be an awesome fit in Cruces.Good pool let's hope we can land one. GO AGGIES!

I'm sorry did I not describe him correctly? He's old. He's a dude. he's an old dude. I was honest in saying I didn't know his name, but still had a valid post besides that.

And JG, thanks for the answer. I haven't heard much about those two dudes. Anything we should know?

What about UConn's Clyde Vaughn? There wasn't an opening on the
14th, when you posted the first blog, but on the 20th Grady left. So now that there is an additional opening other than S&C, would the AD be willing to reconsider. If we are to believe that the current and former coaches wanted him now would seem like a perfect time to give him a shot. Speaking of which any word on the S&C position?

I'm thinkin Marvin should bring Neil McCarthy on board as an assistant coach.

I heard that Herb Pope is going to transfer. Can you please find out if that is true?

Vaughn was declined the job because he likes to spend his money on sex. Not because there wasn't an opening.
