Regardless of who it is, someone needs to be on the staff that can coach offense better. MR has won at 3 different schools and proven that he is a good coach. But…. Good isn’t good enough in the sports world.

I want MR to succeed, heck I’d love to see him coach here 15+ seasons, but even the biggest homers have to see that we’ve had major offensive issues in his tenure.
Interestingly enough wasn’t his Rice teams good on offense and awful on defense?

2016-2017 at Rice over KP 155, Offensive KP 109, Defensive KP 219. That would have been the best VCU offense in his tenure and bar none the worst defense. Go figure. Something doesn’t add up.

I get what you say but I am not comparing W-L records. My point is we are settling for "below" what we have become accustomed. For me, so okay, we make the tournament, but we need to start advancing past even the first night. We need to start winning some A-10 tournaments. What do we have 1 A-10 tournament in the last 10 years? UR has just as many.
Agreed. MR was hired to get the program to and stay at a much higher level than where we are today. For whatever reason, that isn't happening and there needs to be a deep dive into the program to see what's going on.

This. We paid Mike handsomely to improve the program and then gave a extension with a raise his first good year. Quite simply the results are not equal to the contract currently.
