So I was reading the Weekly Recruiting Report over at the Sun and there was a rather interesting quote from commit Makinton Dorleant. I'm sure Ben B. will have the link in the MM later.
“Coach [Don] Brown told me he’s staying, and if he’s there, I’m there. If he were to go, I’m sure Coach Leach or whomever they hire would come talk to me. I’d see what he has to say.
Brown's telling recruits he WILL be staying. That doesn't seem like a statement that should be made unless its a done deal that he is staying. And normally a new head coach would be allowed to pick his own staff. So can this be interpreted as Leach is basically a done deal and has given the okay to keep Brown? Obviously I'm just speculating, but what do you guys think of this statement?
