if it was Tyler, and Sabrina retained on staff, I can't think of a scenario more exciting for LB Nation
other options out there could be really good as well, the suspense mounts
heck, what if Cook won the NCAA and retired, then what'd happen then?
it's hard to say whether 'multiple' stints really means a lot, frankly
not saying she's an optimum choice, have no idea
all these assistants tend to also have club/connections experience to a degree
she started her experience with Irvine, so she did 'work her way up'
again, it is curious simply because of the delay until next week
I was assuming Tyler has a salary as an assistant/associate on par with Big West head coaches or likely more, so assuming the school would have to be creative to land him, maybe even a longer term contract. he definitely has, and 5 years ago had just a good a resume as Joy, as Joy had a lapse in her resume after she left UCLA
and yes, Megan and Tyler 's resumes clearly show a broader background especially with recruiting
we'll see, the delay and timing has the 'hope' that Hildebrand might be the coach out there, but for all we know, that might not be the case
I can understand why the final four teams and if candidates from them didn't want any distraction
Lindsey's whole career has been with Fisher. I'm not saying she would be a poor head coach, but could she have any success away from Fisher? She does not exactly check the box for the "exciting" hire we have been told to expect. The others you mentioned (including Sabrina) have much more varied resumes and have all worked under a number of differing circumstances and head coaches. Megan has for example been at A&M, Oklahoma, Tulsa, and UCLA and that's a more varied resume and experiences. Sure without the success of Pitt, but how much of Pitt's success is mainly Fisher himself?
what are Tyler's qualifications other than working with Knipe and Cook?
yes, Tyler also has USA Beach background, and has more qaulifications
the point is she's a proven assistant over a proven period of time on a program that has been on an upswing, and that is now in the final four, from California so wouldn't surprise if she would want to come to the west coast.
just saying, since the announcement seems to be tied to the final four being over.
the fact is, your comment along the lines of 'what is xxx's qualification aside from working with yyyy for zzz years?' will basically apply to virtually any assistant under consideration (whether that assistant is from Nebraska, or UCLA, or Long Beach, or fill in the blank)
I brought it up simply because of speculation (some of it mine) that could be waiting for Hildebrand, well it could be waiting for someone else as well, that's all
as well, is interesting that Pitt plays Nebraska in the semi-finals.
I think if Sabrina had been selected as HC we would have known by now, unless they are still waiting for some assistant to interview. thinking Sabrina may well be retained, depending on the search, on staff though.
What are her qualifications aside from working with Dan Fisher for several years?
while Hildebrand would be a great choice
there's another final 4 team assistant that could very well be on the radar.
University of Pitt assistant Lindsey Behonick
OC native, Concordia Univesity graduate.
don't be surprised by this one
