You mean 1 - 19 is not an issue?   :huh:

I would think 1-19, or whatever it ends up being, would be an end-of-the-year issue. It doesn't seem like a mid-season issue.

I hope this ends up being someone with clout whose had enough, only because every other option seems much worse. I'm sure we'll hear more soon enough.

I wonder how long it will take before this makes it to VolleyTalk?

Don't make a lazy hire in the first place and then he wouldn't have to deal with this down the road.  Chaves own fault.

Personally, I would have rather seen them go with Erin if they had kept it internal.

But yes, this turned out very poorly in more ways than one. Time to go outside and get someone to fix the mess.

I wish for a certain NSIC head coach, but I know it would never happen

Weird thing is, Tiffin came in with decent credentials.  Basically he was hand picked by Pryor, our most successful coach ever, to be his successor.  Plus, Tiffin is from Winnipeg, so I was hoping to tap into a Canadian recruiting well.  Just an overall bigtime failure on his part, whatever this distraction happens to be, to slide a strong program down so far.  For shame.

Starkey?

Actually looks like a lot of the NSIC teams have good records this year.  Maybe one of Starkey's assistants, too, would be a cool route to take.

I commented earlier this year that coach didn't have to win big this year, but had to show improvement. We knew they'd be young, but had to get better as the season progressed. It seems clear that the ship is not only pointing in the wrong direction, but taking on serious water as well. 

I'm going to take that not hearing much about the reason for the administrative leave as a good thing. I suspect if it was something "really" serious (see past events) there would be a lot more word getting out. I'm speculating tough practices, lots and lots of frustration from everyone (any maybe things being said that shouldn't be said), and a booster or two that's had enough. To quote Sergeant Schultz, "I know nothing!"  I'm just guessing and hoping for the best.

We need someone to inspire, to motivate. We've been there before. I'm hoping the administration will step up and do what needs to be done to get that type of person here again. And no, it won't be "that" person from the Cities. He has too good of thing going at CSP. If he wanted to leave, he would have been gone long ago. And to a more high profile job (with better pay) than UND.

A person can dream can't he?

You are right though, they need someone to bring the program back to respectability and challenging for Summit titles.
