I’m liking Darian Devries the more I read about him.
UNHIRED but at the same time as i minority i believe in merit based advancement.
Not sure what you're whining about."The Collegiate Coaching Diversity Pledge (CCDP) is an opt-in pledge by Division I athletics directors to include a diverse group of candidates in the finalist pool for head coach vacancies in men’s basketball, women’s basketball, and football.
A “diverse pool” is defined as a group of finalists that includes at least one candidate from a diverse or traditionally underrepresented background and at least one candidate from a non-diverse background.
The CCDP reflects a commitment to ensure equal opportunity in the hiring of coaches, and to address the barriers that have prevented full participation of underrepresented minority groups.
How to Comply with the Collegiate Coaching Diversity Pledge
To maintain compliance with the Collegiate Coaching Diversity Pledge, athletic directors must have a finalist pool that includes at least one candidate from a traditionally underrepresented background and one non-diverse candidate.
The interview process for all finalist candidates must be substantially equivalent. For example, if the eventually-hired coach received both a phone, neutral site, and campus interview, all unsuccessful finalist candidates must also have participated in the same process."
Huh. No mention of merit, that I can see.
Might be interesting to see the qualifications Marky will require to be in the pool.
The initiative is about getting more exposure to underrepresented groups, its pretty straightforward.Whining? Pointing out there is no mention of merit in the standards and wondering about marks qualifications is whining?
Gates from Cleveland St as well.
Agree. Anthony Grant is far more accomplished than several on these lists who happens to have different pigmentation.
I have researched Darian Devries some too, and am impressed with him. I view him as a valid option. I challenge all readers to keep an open mind about him. We need to keep Robbins as a foundation and maybe he can do that.I’m liking Darian Devries the more I read about him.
Not really plugged him. Just friends and associates with a few coaches and AD's. But have been around a very long time. Several strong candidates, which is the hidden home run ? And that is if we in fact the change is made.Wow shot fired. I don't know Tony Liebert from Adam, but built you are pretty plugged in. To post something like that, I take it you have some information that Tony Siebert is a bit of a racist?
I think everyone should be considered for this job and the best man(or woman) should be hired regardless of skin color. Whoever can win us games, but I am interested to know the background on Liebert that he would keep Grant off the list because of skin color.
If it is Muss- the wait would be until Muss' team is out of the tourney. Then the two schools would work it out quickly. There would be zero benefit to Arkansas to holding him a day longer if he's settled on leaving. As to existing players, Coyle would be meeting with them and letting them know that we have a great coach worth waiting for coming in next year.If Musselman is Coyle's guy and the buyout drops May 1st, this board is going to be full of a lot of painful talk.
I think Gates is the best candidate of all. He hits all the right buttons with me: 2 time coach if the year, top of the conference record, likes defense and sharing the ball on offense, preaches values and education (sound familiar), great recruiter who already has a 2022/23 kid committed, and has big school experience. Listen to an interview with him—-very impressive. Oh yea, he is black.
