Gophers' hiring of volleyball coach Keegan Cook further confirmation of Hugh McCutcheon's legacy
Hugh McCutcheon is a volleyball heavyweight leaving the Gophers program in such fine shape that a coach from a Final Four-caliber contender will make the move to Minnesota.
The most comforting aspect of the Gophers' choice of a new volleyball coach is the presumed involvement of their former volleyball coach.
Hugh McCutcheon is a heavyweight in the volleyball world. He is being replaced — or replacing himself — with another heavyweight.
On Monday, a few days after the Gophers were eliminated in the NCAA tournament, Minnesota announced the hiring of McCutcheon's replacement, the University of Washington's Keegan Cook, a coach who would not be insulted if you compared him to his predecessor.
