UC Davis Fires Ron Gould

Post by Mvemjsunpx »

There were rumors this was going to happen a week or two ago. I was surprised they went with someone not connected to Bob Biggs 4 years ago, and I wonder if they'll look for someone connected to him this time.

I heard a rumor up here that the Aggies may take a look at former PSU coach Nigel Burton. My opinion, I think they can do better (I hope they can do better).

Be nice, Jal. Burton was an outstanding teammate and he'd be coming closer to home.

I would hope they could do better, too. Everything I read suggested Burton was a total dickbag to his players, and not in a motivating way.

Helluva recruiter, just didn't know how to coach them. When PSU got a real coach to go with the talent Burton brought in, we turned into a damn fine team. Wherever he winds up, that school will have the talent, but can he coach them, that is the question.

Sounds like former Griz basketball coach Pat Kennedy.

Too bad about Gould. Seemed like a genuinely good dude.

Looks like they're going with former Boise & Colorado coach Dan Hawkins.

Interesting. You'd have to think he could at least get them out of the basement.

I hope EWU seriously considers Troy Taylor for the HC position if Baldwin departs in the next 1-2 years. Great offensive mind.
