Volleyball Coaching Search

Recommended Posts

Not that this means anything, but I did see Dan Brown at the men's BB game last week (Thursday, I think), so I'm guessing he's gonna use any chance he can to make an impression on the AD.

Since the search was opened up nationally, one would think this means that he won't get the job...at least the head coaching job.

may have said the same about Schweigert in the national football search...

Technically Schwiegert was a national search. This is more along the lines when Mussman was named Coach. No need to open it up outside of an internal posting. Why go through all the extra work, reviewing apps, point process, etc if you plan to hire internally. Only way I see Brown being hired is if there aren't any other qualified applicants.

With school back in session, do we know if all the "important" underclass(ladies) are back?

Individual workouts so far includes ALL starters from the EOY tournament minus one back row player

Transferring, that is all information players received.

Are you preferring not to disclose which player it is? If so, I understand - hope it isn't your daughter!

What is the vibe around the volleyball team? Are the players excited for a new coach?

The girls are all ready for a new coach They are excited for the Spring Season! From my daughters eyes, they all worked hard over break to impress the new regime.

So, we've been told that the search is down to 3. Who do you think the 3 are? The former Ole Miss coach (Joe Getzin) had some good seasons: 3 NCAA tournament appearences, twice named SEC coach of the year. But his last three seasons were all losing records. Utah State assitant coach (Jeremy Lawson) has been around a winning program at USU, and also was a member of a National Championship BYU men's team in 2001. I don't know who the third choice would be, but upper midwest connections seem to be lacking on that list, which is too bad. Someone mentioned that Dan Brown was not one of the finalists, though I thought he served UND well during his time with Hardee.

^^^While sitting in the airport waiting to find out when my new flight will be, I saw a guy in Utah St garb talking on the phone. Just saw him again...definitely Jeremiah Larsen from USU.

I think Mark Pryor would be a decent hire who would be able to bring in good players to is competitive. I also think J.T. Wenger would be good but he might just use it as a stepping stone. Tami Audia has a lot of experience with some big time teams too. If Jeremiah Larsen does get it we would quickly be one of the top defensive teams in the county. But would are offense struggle a bit is the question. I think there is a lot of great candidates though and it would be hard to make a bad hire

There is a solid quality of lesser names coaches that would do well. I just feel one of those three would be the best. Pryor will bring in another level of recruits but also has a good track record with head coaching. Larson will bring in players and we will be very very strong defensively. USU is one of the best last year and it's his responsibility there. Wenger is the most interesting. He is young and played very competitive volleyball in college.
