Just because... at this point, I really dont know what else will give me hope about the basketball team.
I put my money on Bruce Pearl. He's working in the business world right now but he still clearly has coaching chops. Very enthusiastic, very proud, and a proven coach. I could see him being the perfect coach to pair with the Maryland Pride movement.
In addition, he's still pretty young. Being 53 means he has potentially ten-fifteen years of coaching left.
