MEN'S BASKETBALL COACH JERRY DUNN'S CONTRACT NOT RENEWED

TUSKEGEE, Ala. - The Tuskegee University Department of Athletics announced on Tuesday that it has chosen not to renew the contract for men's head basketball coach Jerry Dunn. A national search will begin immediately to identify his successor.
 
"We thank Coach Dunn for his leadership of Tuskegee's men's basketball team and wish him well in his future endeavors," commented Director of Athletics Willie Slater.
 
Dunn, who spent five seasons at the helm of the program, led the Golden Tigers this past season to a 13-15 overall record —  finishing 8-10 in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC). He concludes his Tuskegee coaching career with a 52-87 record and two winning seasons: 2014 and 2015. Last season, Dunn coached All-SIAC forward Myles Thomas, who led the team in scoring at 14.6 points per game.

You best hope Anderson is serious in the hiring of LUKE.  Without support, as good a coach as he has been ,will falter without sufficient  tools to produce a winning program.  That was a good hire imho.

He should have been fired when the season ended.  The best available coaches are already hired.

I'll admit I thought Dunn was a good hire. He did a decent job at Penn State getting his team to the sweet sixteen once.

TU may want to select someone who's had a more consistent record this time around.

there will "always" be a ton of outstanding coaches available for hire because there's far fewer coaching jobs available compared to the tons of "qualified" coaches who are looking for jobs. 

however, the trick is picking the right one out of those "tons" of available coaches and that requires "homework" that unfortunately many of our hbcu athletic directors choose not to do...

Okay I see the point of your statement but I don't agree with it entirely.  I think its more a recruiting issue than finding a good coach issue.

I think you are safe unless Tuskegee comes up with a lot of $$$$$$  :lol:  Fred is loyal when you treat him right. But if they come up with some NASA 💰They have better facilities for recruiting and serious name recognition.
