    I'm angry, but maybe it's time to explore coaches outside the Shaka tree?

    I'm thinking Bill Coen at Northeastern.

    Would it be possible to pull a Gottfried? Would that be good for the program?

    I'm still wondering if WW leaving is true. If it is, my choice for new coach would be for Rhodes based on what has done at Rice and Richmond roots.

    I've seen a lot of love for Rhoades, but why? Obviously he was around during the Shaka years, but is there any other reason. I thought he was doing worse at Rice that ODU... Honestly just looking for reasons why he would be a better fit as HC here than there.

    Let's ask ourselves what we want as a VCU program. We want stability. We want success. We want a coach who will stay. The answer is simple.

    Mike Rhoades.

    Look at his profile. He stayed with Randolph-Macon for 13 years, 10 as a head coach. Came to VCU as an assistant for 5 years. He's our guy.

    Richmond guy
    Players coach
    Fantastic recruiter
    Familier with university
    Fans would go nuts for him to return.
    He might bring joey!

    I agree. Leave the Shaka tree behind.

    I'm all in on Rhodes, but I was last time too. What he has done at Rice is amazing I think. 2 years ago there wasn't enough data yet (he had only been there one year), but the proof is there now. And he has lived in this area for a really long time, so it's more likely (though certainly not guaranteed) that he's in for the long haul.

    He's a likable guy who can recruit and is turning Rice around pretty quickly.
