What are his ties to North Dakota and/or UND?  I don't see any listed on his NSU bio page.  Interesting if he is chosen over the other two that do have ties.

U made my point. Coaches with non nd ties are loved to be hated on

I dont understand this fascination with Boschee and the name....old news....UND needs a coach to come in and recruit at a high level. Simular to what Otzelberger did at SD State....ONLY candidate that pusues talent for the roster like that on the following lists is Herbst IMO. Even names like Saul Phillip's dont bring the recruiting prowess of Herbst. UND is a challenging job with limited resources compaired to others in Summit. Location alone brings its issues. Not saying Boschee, Sather, Saul, and others are poor coaches....but the name of the game is getting players.

Eager to hear what comes.

 

 

 

 

My fascination (which has been documented throughout this thread) are several fold:  Yes, he's a ND HS star from 20 years ago, BUT, his connections to the college BB holy grail would be second to none:  Played under Roy Williams, one of college basketball's elite coaches; played at Kansas, one of college basketball's elite programs, played in the NCAA final four; was the reason Kansas played in Grand Forks in 2001 - could potentially bring a recurring matchup with Kansas again; could potentially bring a matchup with North Carolina, where Roy Williams currently coaches, also one of college basketball's elite programs.  College basketball is the way that small colleges make names for themselves, and having connections to that kind of royalty can't hurt.

I'm not sure Gunther, Glas or Jones had ties to UND prior to coaching.

I have no problem with this choice. Although it does make the specifics of the job listing curious. Let's hope he has a staff lined up that can recruit the twin cities better than what has been done recently.

I'm not saying hiring a guy without ties is wrong, but it was a preferred qualification, and they had guys named as finalists that met that qualification.  I guess the best take on it is that even despite not having those preferred ties, Sather blew them away.  I'm ready to be blown away, too.

Looks like a great hire.  It just simply looks like he is a good coach. He is a winner. Exciting. Doesn’t matter if he was at a  big time program before or not. He knows how to coach wins. Living in North Dakota won’t be a shock either. Good days ahead.

Yeah if you can get kids to go to Aberdeen you should be able to get kids to go to UND.

I'm disappointed we didn't hire Boschee.  Sather is a winner and is a major step above Jones.  I wish him the best.

The fact that he wasn't listed as a finalist must mean that he wasn't interested.  I'm fine with that - I don't want someone who doesn't want to be here.

What? You mean Chaves has a mind of his own and doesn't let the #gobc tell him what to do?

Fresh ideas.

I have no idea of the talent level difference between the bottom of D1 (us) and the top of D2 (NSU), but would his NSU teams be better then this past year's UND team?

Yes

I wonder if anyone from NSU will follow Sather. Possibly Parker Fox a 6’8” soon to be sophomore. Averaged 10.5 points and 5.3 boards as a sophomore. Redshirted so would have to sit out a year and come in as a junior correct?

I'm relatively sure he was interested

Don't know about the hire. Think that Northern State can kind of recruit itself. If you want to play hoops and play in front of sold out crowds every night then there is your spot. Hopefully he is able to recruit some athletes that can get it done in the Summit League. Chaves went off script for the hire, interesting take that we got a guy who hasn't been around the D1 level in 15 years, or has had any D1 transfers (2 since he took over at NSU), also not many jc players on the rosters. Good luck winning in this league without some of those.  

 

I wonder if everyone around the area is as fired up about the hire as much as sather was against Augie a couple of years ago. :blink:
