GONZALEZ RESIGNS AS MEN'S BASKETBALL COACH TO ACCEPT SAME POSITION AT SETON HALL
Riverdale, N.Y. (April 7, 2006)- Manhattan head men's basketball coach Bobby Gonzalez has announced his resignation to accept the head coaching position at Seton Hall University. Manhattan College will begin its search for Gonzalez's replacement immediately, but have set no timetable for the hiring process.
Surprised he stayed as long as he did. Not a very well kept secret. I hope he extracted a lot of money from them. Anyway, we’ll see if Brother President can work his “small budget magic secret” (i.e., can’t afford to pay a lot, economics of a small school, so let me find the best up and coming talent who wants a chance to break into the big time by working for substandard money, all the while knowing that if he’s good, he’s gone). While creating a lab for testing coaching fitness, MC does get the benefit of good coaching for whatever time we can have them. Interesting strategy born out of necessity.
Since I have a CGC meeting on Monday, it should make for some interesting table talk. I doubt I'll have any "scoops" but I will enjoy the insight into his thinking. :-)
