1. Young (42 years old)
2. Big enough name to keep Faust and Gibbs on board
3. He's already recruiting Shaq which would likely only translate to Shaq being more interested in UMD
4. He could bring in players from AU's current recruiting class for 2011 which looks better than ours to begin with
5. It's rumored UMD is his dream job via other sports forums
6. He knows how to beat Duke in the sweet 16 without MD/VA talent.
