I’m fine with this. We need an offensive minded coach badly. Interested to see who Archie brings in, especially this late in the game.

Yes definitely fine with this. After Brooks went to pUKe he lost all luster, and didn't really see the offensive development from players that I thought would come with that hire.

Someone on this board or another called this a while ago, and said it would be addition by subtraction.

I don't know what to think, but more inclined to see this as a negative. He had great ties around the state, but if he couldn't get along with the staff or whatever, then maybe this outcome is best.

Assistant coaches are probably overrated anyway.

This was either Ed’s choice or something has happened recently that caused this to happen. This isn’t the time of year for a head coach to shake up the staff.

I liked that he had ties to the state, not real bothered otherwise.  Wish Lewis was still available.

 

Hope we replace him with an IU guy or someone with ties for in state recruiting.

??? Did it ever pay off? I don't think so.

Ed Schilling may have ties to the state, but they're waning the further away he gets from his camps, and I have not been sold on ANY of the assistant coaches from a basketball standpoint.   Can he take Bruiser with him?  Surely an IU guy can stand with his hands in his pockets and look away from the huddle.

This is way less than ideal. I know half of the crowd will see this as a positive and half as negative.

Schilling is respected around the state. There is no denying that. Archie or someone selected him for a reason.

I realize many will find a silver lining here and maybe a negative can be turned into a positive but this is another flag imo.

Yep agreed.  Timing makes it look less than mutual and more like Schilling wanted off a sinking ship. He probably was trying to find a coaching job for better optics and couldn’t get it. 

Then again Schilling wasn’t the guy on Romeo when Romeo said that IU started to lead. And without getting Brooks. Gotta wonder. 

He has connections but with two years in state Ostrom and Archie have them now as well 

Our guard development outside of Al has been trash so gotta wonder how invested Ed was since that was supposed to be his forte. 

UCLA fans weren’t exactly upset when he left although look what happened to the bruins

Need to hire a former player that can teach shooting.

Honestly I am guessing he got forced out. As a coach quitting right at the end of June is a bad move. There are no jobs open. Plus it’s crazy timing from a recruiting standpoint. Wonder if we have another Kyrie Irving moment honestly.

More and more questions. Less answers.

Can Archie bring Sean in as a recruiting specialist?

Tom Crean could really fix our broken offense. 

Edit

We really just need a good shooting coach if we could have hit just 35% of our 3s our offense would have been fine.
