    Good luck to Coach Ballard




    Now, the question is who will be VCU's top assistant? Hopefully someone that loves to fly around talking to recruits.

    Ballard was VCU's top assistant. Coach Rhoades now has an opportunity to branch out or take care of his guys. From what I hear Martelli is a good recruiter who knows his stuff and then you have Joey who is still learning. The other option is to bring in an experienced assistant that is a top notch recruiter. Should be interesting.

    I'd like to see a professional recruiter or a defensive specialist (or both in one guy?). We don't have either on the existing staff. Cast a broad net, Mike.

    I should have said this before: Congrats to Coach Ballard. VCU is a head-coach factory!

    I wonder if Rasheen wants to come back . . . .

    I doubt it. VCU had the opportunity to retain him last offseason and the UMass staff loves him.

    Hadn't thought about the fact that he may take Joey with him! :(

    Yep. Ballard can offer him a position that would get his foot in the door as an assistant.

    Yup. I am thinking Mike is going to have 2 spots to fill. Maybe Jamal Brunt?
