    But I thought he was hired to keep the roster in tact?

    Would that matter for a Sophomore? He wasnít around when that guy was a freshman, right? Wouldnt that have applied more to a Juniors, Seniors, and Senior+?

    Gotta move on asap. There are a thousand good coaches out there that can try and get this back together. This program fell apart before our very eyes over a 4 month span. Dr. Wood needs to do something. Now!

    All of you could be right about this coach. I will admit that I am in the "I don't know yet" column, though. I never judge a coach in the first year. If next year is like this one, I am fully on board with all of you though.

    I'd like to see what year 2 looks like with Hester before totally freaking out - same goes for Cumbie and the football team.

    Konkol was a bust in year 1 at Tulsa. Will he get a second year? https://tulsahurricane.com/sports/me...tball/schedule

    Konkol was 5-25! LOL! And two of his wins were against SWACers, those don't even count as real wins.

    Hester sucks. There is nothing there, which makes him perfect for the empty suit crowd, i.e. Wood and Guice.

    Hester was an employment equity hire, IMO. Had to balance out the FB coach hire.

    I'm more willing to give a 2 year pass to Cumbie because he was digging out of a much bigger hole. We were so devoid of talent it's impossible to totally separate out bad coaching.

    Hester should have a much shorter leash imo. Next year could be catastrophic.

    I’m predicting it will be. If our current talent feels they can do better, is this staff going to attract equal or better talent?

    Looking at the new faces in the athletic department directory, that seems to be the rule rather than the exception.

    I don't know what the candidate pool looked like, so I can't say if Hester was the clear choice for the job or not. Since he was an assistant at Tech for three years, Tech should have had some idea as to what they were getting. Beyond the Xs and Os, I'd love to know what the players think about him as a coach. If he is able to foster a good relationship with the players, then I think there is hope - assuming he knows the Xs and Os.

    Re: The Exodus Begins

    Here is what we know about Hester...

    He's a decent recruiter: Lofton, Cobe were Hester recruits...both gone

    He's a terrible coach. The basketball we played down the stretch was just really really bad basketball. I saw a team with no identity, no semblance of a plan, nothing.

    Off season will be interesting.
