He walked in winning without a change in roster- horses already in the stable.  When the prior coaches players moved on through graduation etc, Mack saw the handwriting on the wall, knowing he had not replaced those thoroughbreds  it was time for his usual , SCAT  moving  before the rent was due.   

You all act like Coach Mack did not recruit any good players at all.  Several starters on that 2016 MEAC CHAMPIONSHIP team were recruited by Coach Mack.  Our recruiting classes were always rated in the top 5 among HBCUs.  We lost a lot of seniors from the 2016 team.  We were very young in 2017.  Granville Eastman was not head coach material in 2018.  He wore many many hats as HC, DC, DB coach, etc.

But his 1st class that would have been freshman in 2015 and graduated in 19 haven't produced the same results as when he was there

2017 7-4
2018 5-6
2019 4-8

Coach Mack's first recruiting class came in 2014.  He brought in freshmen, Div I transfers, and JUCOs.  He added onto what Henry Frazier had brought in.


LOOK OUT MEAC WE ARE BACK AND READY

I agree, coach Mack was an excellent coach. He won and won big. If he remained at Central they would still be winning. HBCUs and other small schools don't have the money to have "good programs ". We sometimes get good coaches but our programs suck. Both coaches, Mack and Maynor, are proving that. When WSSU was winning we just had good coaches that was given an unusual amount of money. Money we couldn't sustain. So we feel of a cliff. None of us have good programs.
