Got a feeling we are going to have a star studded staff. If Thad Matta joins the program and he’s not even on the staff, that signals to me they are getting serious. Can’t wait to see what the roster looks like for next season. 

Maybe so.  We could have dropped $10M/year on Stevens, or $5M/year on Woody and spend more on assistants.  Big win there

Don’t get me wrong , I think he can coach but I know him through the Knicks.  I don’t think he has the energy to recruit. 

I may be wrong, but it’s my understanding that assistant coaches do most of the legwork recruiting and head coaches come in to close the deal.

Same. With an NBA guy, Matta, and some good assistants, this actually rules. 

I’ll eat my words if this doesn’t work out, but I’m ready for them to come out swinging.

I’m concerned about this.  Low energy personality.  Maybe recruits and families will like that?  Maybe younger assistants can do a lot of the legwork.

Well Woody. Just win and we're all square here. Definitely going to have to win over the fan base. 

Personally, I think he's already won most of them over already. It's just a few of you nay-sayers on here that are the hold outs.

I mean he won a national championship so......

And he's top 20 in all-time NBA scoring and pretty much a lock for the HOF......nobody should be doubting Carmelo Anthony's acumen.  Coaching him is a plus.

I wonder if Woodson and Matta know each other. Seems like a lot of opportunity for disagreement in terms of coaching style, players to target, etc.

He needs some good, young assistants to help with that.  Lewis and Fife would be fine with me.

Order of business Coach Woodson ...

1. hire stud assistant coaches

2. Find players YOU feel will best represent IU basketball!
