He has a MASTER's degree from OU and for the last 7-8 years has been a high school teacher/basketball coach, including the last 3 at NNHS. This isn't a guy that is running basketball camps and creating super teams during the summer just to ride some kid's coattails. He has established roots in the community, including OU, and has the experience AND educational background to show he interested in improving the lives of student-athletes, not just getting rich off of them.

While I think, based on his resume and his connections, he would be a really good pick, he may not be Moser's best choice for a 3rd assistant. Maybe Moser has a more experienced guy in mind. But he certainly would be a qualified choice based on his background. And it is ridiculous for anyone in compliance to nix his entire resume based on an assumed perception or conflict.

In any case, Moser has been on point with every decision so far and I have no doubt he will get someone that we will look back on and not think twice about McCoy. I only hope it is all his decision, not just compliance.
ya....makes sense...hopefully it was Moser's choice vs compliance. I wouldn't understand that one...

After the Capel fiasco and the Bomar issues, our compliance department became the tightest, strictest in the entire NCAA. I expected it would loosen up a bit with Boren gone, but it doesn't seem that it has.

I don't want us to be out there cheating in the open. I don't want SEC style Wild West stuff going on. I do, though, think we should be on a level playing field, and the basketball stuff is shady everywhere. It's hard to compete if you're not even able to come close to the grey areas.
Oh I get it. I was om campus as a student during the Switzer years. I also have several good friends who played football and basketball at OU. I know what goes on, trust me....

I wasn't responding to what you said, I was responding to a couple of posters who have actively been saying they wish we would pay players because other schools do it and we can get away with it. It's been in a couple of threads lately.... I was just saying I want no parts of winning by cheating, and I don't care who is doing it. It's a personal thing with me. I won't allow college athletics to become so important in my life that I want to cheat to succeed. That isn't success the way I judge success.....

No one can deny coach Kruger was a good coach. What I like about coach Moser is his passion and energy can be noticed in a 30 second video. Will that equal success, who knows, but I like it.

I am so, so glad EJ didn't leave. He is an excellent piece to build this team around. If he can fully step into a leadership position and the other guys take on his personality on the court, look out.

Saw that too. Wonder if Porter thinks he can mold him into a “forward” he can use. Guess he’s still officially in the portal. As such weird he’s doing team activities..

That would be a coup. Elite recruiter and former head coach.

Is that the guy who was associate head coach at Arkansas last season? If so, that seems an oddly lateral (or worse) move for him.

Until compliance finds something wrong with him too even though no rules have been broken

It would generally be considered a downward move if you're giving up an associate head coach position for a regular assistant gig (though perhaps Moser's promised him a similar position at OU). I agree OU is a better program, but it's not as though he's moving from a middling program to a blue blood.

But if Musselman's that poisonous, I get it.

Also, OU would be his seventh gig since 2005. I hope he's looking to settle in for a while.

It would make sense that they are waiting on a specific date because I know Crutchfield had a buyout when he left Arky....they waived it when he went to ECU, however.

I'm sure they won't if he went to a P5.

Can agree on the last part, Musselman is notoriously demanding and hard to work under...but he gets results. Just not for everyone.

Arkansas has made some awful hires in basketball lately but still has the fan support, facilities and tradition to be a top 15 team every year IMO. No reason Hogs shouldn't be around the 3rd best program in the SEC. Even under Mike Anderson most years the attendance was nearly top 10 in the country. Hopefully Muss is starting to bring it back.
