No good assistant with the hope of moving up the ladder would take the Fordham job.  It's a career killer.  JN is finding that out now.

1. JN was not an assistant who took this job, he was an established mid major head coach.
2. We have not hired an assistant since when? Pecora was a mid major HC, so was DW, Hill was a former NBA HC, Nick was a mid major HC, Penders was an established HC at Columbia....

Calling the Fordham job a career killer for an "assistant" is not accurate and has no meaningful history, if any, to evaluate it. We have never gone that route in the A-10 or even in the MAAC. An assistant making $200K at a Providence or Syracuse takes the Fordham gig for $500K guaranteed for 4 years and it doesn't work out, you think his career is dead?  Now, it might kill the head coaching career for an established mid major coach, like Pecora, that I might agree with, but the assistant route has not been tried and I dont think its the same career killer potential. A good assistant could likely land right back at a top school as an assistant, with a hefty bank roll.

I think many fans are wholly unrealistic about the head coaching opportunities at this level of basketball. and for this kind of $$. Look at how long it took Prioleau to get a head coaching gig. Sometimes, even with great assistants it just never happens.
