Mutual Interest , Hmmm

Can't blame him , 210K more. Atlanta.

GSU pays $460,000,  Moton makes $250,000

This is a move that actually looks almost too good to pass up.  Still in the south, not far from family and friends. International Airport. GA State is one of the fastest growing schools in the nation.  Good facilities too... :tiptoe:

Pay the man Central......don't let him leave your grasp......dude's done too much for you to lose him to Georgia State.  Georgia Tech or Georgia - ok, I get it.  Georgia State..... :no:

To me, what's more baffling than that is the fact that Ron Hunter (a damn good coach) is leaving Georgia State for Tulane  :o.  That's a lateral move at best.  Unless Tulane is suddenly serious about upgrading its basketball program, I don't see where the move to Tulane makes any sense  :shrug:

More competitive conference for Tulane vs Ga State. He (Hunter) will be competing against bigger, stronger and ranked programs like Houston, Cincy, SMU, UCF, USF.

Not sure if Central can match the salary or not. I hope they can provide a more incentive laced structure to retain him. He will do fine wherever he lands but hoping he can continue to build and grow himself and Central simultaneously.

Yes, Tulane is a higher profile institution (academically and athletically) and much richer than GA State too.  GA State is a growing once commuter school.

Best wishes to Coach Moton if he decides to move on.  It is not always greener on the other side.

Go Eagle Nation...

I doubt he'll make $460,000.00 going to Georgia State. Maybe $400,000.00 tops.  NCCU might be able to keep him for $325,000.00 tops.  At some point NCCU will have to pay him top dollar. 

To get better recruits he'll need a longer contract.

Moton is gone if he's offered the job. He gets the chance to coach in a conference with a higher RPI among other things amenities already mentioned. One thing for sure if he goes to GA State and win the conference tournament he will more than likely be seeded 10-14 as opposed to being in the First Four Every year. I would love to see him stay at NCCU, however I wish Coach  Moton the Best should he leave.

I thought a Florida school would come after him. I never thought about Georgia State. But he will win at Georgia State and after that
he will have many opportunities at a higher level.

This is going to sound like I'm throwing shade. Maybe I am because I'm certainly partisan in this matter but people need to honor their contracts. If you're going to entertain offers every year then you need to sign one year contracts with your employer. Moton's contract expires 2022.

Secondly, there's the Peter Principal.  Wasn't Shaka Smart going to be the next great basketball coach? The press was building him up like Zion is being built this year. Since he's left VCU, he's made a lot of money I'll give him that, but he hasn't set the coaching world on fire with winning.  He's a nomad chasing bigger contracts. Now he's considering UCLA.

There was another young black coach he was the assistant when Florida was winning back to back NCAA's. Name escapes me.  Got his first head coaching gig, did well, but the press built him up and he too is chasing the next big contract.

I don't think chasing contracts is what Moton wants, but I wish he'd finish his contract with NCCU first. 

Who knows, Dr. McCree might find another coach who will have me saying "Moton who?".  :lol:

You're throwing shade.  Shaka wasn't chasing a big contract. Before going to Texas he turned down offers. Just like Moton.  Anthony Grant was at Alabama.  He was also an assistant there for ten years.  He returned home. Like Moton is currently at home at NCCU. 

Shaka doesn't to set the world on fire in Austin. 

Moton will make the right decision.  He's honoring his contract. That's why there's a buyout clause.

Most think Joyner is just a good recruiter and not good at X's & O's. Which is false, Joyner actually has a tourney victory " Play in " game. Moton has the name and the cache and he's won more conference titles (Moton5) than (Joyner3).

2006–2009   VCU
2009–2015   Alabama
2015–2017   Oklahoma City Thunder (assistant)
2017–present   Dayton


It's more like he returned 'home' to Dayton his Alma Mater.

I guess the point I'm trying to make is just say 'I want to make more money' because personally me and the wife could live like king & queen on $250K when we were his age.  We can damn sure live millionaires on that in retirement.  :lmao:

Go out and convince one or two of these ballers to come to NCCU and make some real noise.  You break the cycle of players bypassing HBCUs and get them in the mix. The players want to play against good competition. They only come 'home' after riding the bench.

Mark Few has been at Gonzaga his entire coaching career and they are national powers. He ain't chasing a dollar. Shaka, Anthony, and even Jeff Capel before them are just average coaches at best now that that they are chasing contracts.  VCU could be Gonzaga if just one of them stayed.

Exactly, PLUS all those close conference games he won this past year should refute the X-O rap against Joyner.

I can't express my opinion.  I have always advocated 'honoring your contract'. Way back when Greg Jackson was our coach I felt the same way. Jackson was upset that the new FB coach was making more than him and demanded more. Alums were up in arms asking that we write then Chancellor Julius Chambers to retain him.

I wrote the Chancellor and said if he wouldn't honor the contract, let him walk.  He did and I haven't missed Greg Jackson as coach. Guess what at Del St, Greg signed a series of one year contracts. That's all I'm saying.  If you're going to be looking then sign one year deals. Buy-outs are a cop out because I doubt NCCU is going to get $250k for each year remaining.

I'll probably feel the same way with Moton if he breaks his word.

Mark Few makes $1,780,000.00 per year.  Gonzaga paid him the money and he stayed.  They also changed conferences.  Heaven forbid NCCU pays Moton $500,000.00 and moves from your current play in conference.

......Gonzaga has been in the West Coach Conference for the past 40 years.  They haven't switched conferences.

Pay Moton more to keep him.  There are exceptions to every rule.  When a dude does well by you, you do well by him.  $300K+ for Moton at Central.  If that ain't enough for him, then he's free to leave.  But don't let parsimony get in the way of losing the best coach and one of the best ambassadors Central has going for it.

 :shrug: but our joyner has yet to win a "championship", neither regular season nor tournament.  so why would he even be a hot commodity?  you don't get promotions just based on success over one very good coach. 

i honestly don't think he's showing up on anybody else's radar as far as hiring goes because norfolk's coach has been far more successful than joyner and has some key upsets over major d1 programs in recent years.  yet, he's still in norfolk...

I would like to think one of these coaches would like to bring some fame to an HBCU instead of running off at the first check waived at them.

For the record I realize Moton hasn't done that and hope he finishes this contract.

No it's not but The MEAC / SWAC are 16 seeds. That/s the point. Those other seeds have been added to the First Four to boost interest and revenue in Dayton.... I'm not slighting NCCU. I am just stating facts. Again, I wish Coach Moton Well whatever He Chooss.

why are you and y04185 blaming the schools instead of the conference management? 

It's the ultimate catch-22, but it's a conference decision to keep these schools in the conference. And if the school takes the money games and still can't entice good players to come what's the point?

Does the MEAC have a clause to kick out willfully under performing schools? 

When you have schools playing money games to fund athletics it means they aren't trying.

Schools set their non conference schedule. Money games aren't bad per say but your entire Non conference can't be money games. Play and beat mid major schools.

The MEAC conference doesn't have anything to do with it

2017–present   Dayton


It's more like he returned 'home' to Dayton his Alma Mater.

I guess the point I'm trying to make is just say 'I want to make more money' because personally me and the wife could live like king & queen on $250K when we were his age.  We can damn sure live millionaires on that in retirement.  :lmao:

Go out and convince one or two of these ballers to come to NCCU and make some real noise.  You break the cycle of players bypassing HBCUs and get them in the mix. The players want to play against good competition. They only come 'home' after riding the bench.

Mark Few has been at Gonzaga his entire coaching career and they are national powers. He ain't chasing a dollar. Shaka, Anthony, and even Jeff Capel before them are just average coaches at best now that that they are chasing contracts.  VCU could be Gonzaga if just one of them stayed.

Mark Few makes $1,780,000.00 per year.  Gonzaga paid him the money and he stayed.  They also changed conferences.  Heaven forbid NCCU pays Moton $500,000.00 and moves from your current play in conference.

Toby up in here spreading lies again. When did Gonzaga change conferences and what’s the relevancy to Mark Few and/or his contract?

:lmao:

it is possible for the MEAC to make a 14th seed and possibly even higher. We got a 14 seed in 2014. Moton's best team IMO.

quality OOC wins, 15-1 in conf, won conf tourney.  Got smoked in the NCAA vs #3 Iowa St     
 
No First Four game.

If the other schools in the conference do their part the MEAC could be seeded higher.  The majority of the MEAC schools aren't even trying to be better.

imo, our seeding is not important because history has shown even when we are seeded higher than 15 or 16, we still get "smoked" by the higher seed.  heck, me personally, i much rather play in the "play-in" game because we have a much better chance of winning that game.  plus, unlike the first round which is televised "regionally" in most cases, the "play-in" game is usually televised "nationally" and there's no other march madness games going on to share the tv market with.

and let's be real, ain't no d1 hbcu gone win no national championship.  hail, no d1 hbcu has "EVER" in history had advanced beyond the 2nd round and we've only advance beyond the 1st round 3 times in meac history.  so folk need to be real. 

that's why the seeding is not important.  even if we were seeded 13 or 12, its very likely that the outcome would be same.  imo, i say let's take advantage of the "play-in" game where we have a good chance of winning a march madness game in front of a national audience all to ourselves and whatever happens after that will be "frosting on the cake"...

the schools are directly affected by the perception of the conference and their ability to compete.

How is that not something the conference management can not mandate or give a time table for results to be shown or some penalties or expulsion can result?

That's just a part of the equation.  Getting sponsors is another part.  You can only get a limited number of sponsors with just one person collecting checks.  Also, being D1 you shouldn't just allow people to buy just season tickets.  In order to get season tickets you have to first give to athletics at a certain level.  The more you give the more season tickets you get.  Also, you have to give higher to get first shot at post season ticket sales.  Some schools are already doing this.  Many are not.  Football and basketball should be completely separate.

The conference can not mandate it.  At best they can suggest it.  At some point, schools like NCCU will have to either settle for the mediocrity of the MEAC or move to a more competitive conference.

Unfortunately , He's right about this one. The MEAC OOC is horrible. A lot of schools are cashing check and not playing and beating mid majors


why are you and y04185 blaming the schools instead of the conference management? 

It's the ultimate catch-22, but it's a conference decision to keep these schools in the conference. And if the school takes the money games and still can't entice good players to come what's the point?

Schools set their non conference schedule. Money games aren't bad per say but your entire Non conference can't be money games. Play and beat mid major schools.

The MEAC conference doesn't have anything to do with it

Money games aren't the issue. Our problem is we can't beat the mid majors and lower D1 schools. I did a tally a few years ago and we actually lose about 70% of those games if I remember correctly. Heck we were barely above beating D2's more than 50% of the time. Lol, notice how a lot of us have started scheduling D3 instead of D2?

Also, a lot of it comes down to coaching.  You can tell that the HBCU will lose because of piss poor coaching and game preparation.  In too many close games we lose because we don't play to win.

playing D2 vs NAIA (D3) I think this due to playing a D2 is not counted in your W-L record whereas a NAIA school is.  Doesn't make sense but that what it is.

As far as coaching goes, sometimes the players just don't execute, or the kid chokes, OR the other team is just LUCKY FOR THAT GAME. You know what it happens to best of coaches.
Ask the New Orleans Saints. Sh!t happens.

Georgia State also noted the declining GPA for the men’s basketball team. The average GPA for players on scholarship decreased from 2.43 in 2014-15 to 2.22 in 2016-17. The team GPA decreased from 2.44 in 2014-15 to a projected 2.31 in 2017-18.

just as I thought.  Obsessing on your rival isn't a good look.

but the coaching carousel will be in effect for at least another month.

Of course Moton likes coaching at NCCU, doesn't mean he won't leave. We just don't need to YOU reporting it like it's gonna prevent a can of whup ass from us.
