All three schools are closer to Lincoln,  PA.

Hate to see him go, but I understand the move.

Can someone call Rick Duckett?

 :offtopic: Didn't know he made over a 100,000 a yr (107k according to the article). Is he the highest paid MBB coach in the CIAA?

I'm sure yall can find somebody way, way better. Collins can't coach. Fails to make second half adjustments and trapping zone defense is porous at best.

If Bobby leaves good luck, thanks for service. I hope we go after Ronald " Bootsy" Woodard should Bobby leaves. Bootsy is an assistant at ECSU.

I think everyone is ignoring the 10,000 lb elephant in the room: In my opinion the current instability within the WSSU athletic department and current administration is leaving the coaches in a tough spot, and forcing them to look elsewhere for stability.

Huh?

Maynor left for a big payday when Hayes was still AD.

Collins is being courted by D1 schools for a raise and closer to Lincoln,  PA.

Did I miss something else?

Coach Collins is a good coach and I think he can build a program that will be competitive in the MEAC.  The caveat is, "does he have that extra-something that will get you over the hump to a championship?"  I think he is that coach that who can build a championship team every 4-or-5 years, followed by frustrating seasons until he is able to find another group of players who will mature by their Jr. and Sr. year and challenge for a championship.

Which MEAC university should Collins pick if he has a choice?  I am thinking Coppin State, followed by Delaware State.  Maryland Eastern Shore is just too far in the boonies to recruit players.

You are right on all parts you said, but you have to admit the instability within the athletic department currently has a little something to do with the coaching exits.

I have faith in Tonia Walker to make a good hire.  She's been at WSSU since 2000.  Former HIU Athlete that has been a Coach and Administrations at WSSU.

Coach Hayes is the man, but he had a good staff helping him.

Money and the chance to compete at a higher level are the reasons for leaving.  Wssu was D1 transitional when coach Collins started so it was his intention to coach on that level. I'm thinking being at a school without football is a plus so that eliminates Del state. Also when Dell writes these  type of stories he already knows something. I look for Bobby to announce something after the final four since a majority of coaches and most AD's usually attend, which makes getting deals done easier with everyone in the same location. My gut feeling is  Maryland eastern shore.

Which leads me to my next question: Why haven't they made Walker the acting AD and removed the interim tag? She's more than qualified to handle the position.  :shrug:

With the talent we have returning,  redshirts, Transfers and high school signees we're loaded with talent.

After what happened under his watch at Grambling, uhhh NOOOOOOO.

From what a couple of FSU and WSSU alumni have said to me is this: 1. Duckett did this summer fall out run before he got to Grambling but nobody ended up dead; 2. Duckett was not at practice or on campus when the "fun time in the summer" run occurred; 3. the man is a good coach and would be an even better coach at d2 level based on his years in d1.

If I were WSSU I would go after Stinson at LC, Duckett or the assistant coach already there Wilhelmi (who is doing the recruiting and finding the few players WSSU did get. Wilhelmi might be loyal to Collins but if WSSU offered me the head job I might take it.  My guess is some very good candidates will apply at WSSU for the coaching position. There is a reason Bill Harvey had to sit Collins down. Now, he is a decent coach but is he the best coach even for a MEAC team looking to be a serious contender. Nope, nope, & nope. The one problem we had at HIU with Collins was his inability to get the guys that could outright play.
