Revenue Sport Coaching Approval Poll

I know that it's not even been 2 weeks since HughGR's last poll about the state of the basketball program, but I thought that getting a relative idea of where both coaches stand with the TT fans would be an interesting off-season exercise.

For me, at the end of the 2011-2012 basketball season, I strongly approved of the job Turgeon was doing and strongly did not approve of Edsall. Since then, my opinions have shifted to the point where I still approve of Turgeon (although not quite as strongly) and I grudgingly approve of Edsall. While both have fallen short of expectations in at least two of their three years coaching, I think Turgeon has more consistently had better results and more consistently come closer to meeting expectations. I'm cautiously optimistic about both coaches next year.

Below is my breakdown of how I would grade both coaches by season. I included both an overall grade (based on how they finished the season in terms of wins, losses, and postseason play) and a curved grade (based on performance relative to expectations, team talent, injuries etc.). I think Turgeon's best performance was his first year, where he put together respectable results with a skeleton crew of a team. His last two years have been moderate disappointments, but I didn't expect either team to be a guaranteed tournament team. Edsall's the opposite. His first season was an unmitigated disaster, but the year of the AMQBHG showed promise. Last year was a moderate disappointment, but not a terrible year overall.
