It’s a rainy Sunday decided to try and rank A10 coaches by game preparation and in game adjustments.  Note that I am not putting in the new coaches but if people want to add them in fine.

1. Mark Schmidt always gets the most out of his team
2. Chris Mooney most underrated coach in the league
3. Phil Martelli much maligned but his game planning is great
4. Jeff Neubauer bad start to the season last year hurts his ranking
5. Bob mckillop great offensive coach but his defense is atrocious
6. Dave Paulsen struggled with were to put him nothing jumped out as being great or bad
7. Dan Hurley this ranking shows really good talent can overcome average coaching
8. Maurice Joseph took over for Lonergan he could move up this year depending on results
9. John Gianini nothing there to help his  team
10. Travis Ford I was not impressed not one bit


In making the list it appears many of the coaches are close in ability and you can move Martelli and Mooney down with mckillop and Paulsen up.  Have at it.

Good list. Agree with Mooney and Schmidt leading the pack.

Mike Rhoades (VCU) has a good chance to be atop that group.

Dr G is the only bad coach in the conference now IMO.  Well, actually I know very little about McCall, but Kellogg was awful.  Miller was the best but Grant is good.  Rhoades is at least as good as Wade.  Dambrot is Neubauer level as he enters a Fordham-like situation.

Interesting to note that despite impeccable game-prep, Martelli's been knocked for an inability to make mid-game adjustments.

The complexity of coaching is endlessly fascinating to me -- rating "game coaches" in isolation sets aside a ton of important things like recruiting, player development, staff assembly, etc, yet still resists being a simple or straight-forward rubric.

agree for the most part but I think that Hurley should be #4 on this list.  He is a better game coach than most give him credit for and an excellent recruiter...these things have to count...

Not in this thread.  This is an x and o discussion.  I am interested to hear what in Hurley’s game planning and in game coaching is underrated.
