    Lindsay Puckett just added as Director of Video Operations. I believe there is still one assistant coach spot to fill. Welcome aboard Lindsay! 






    Still another AC? Why? What is taking so long?

    What a lot of people don’t realize is that there are requirements of jobs being posted for specific time limits before actually announcing. I noticed one of the assistants at the press conference with Coach Hendrix but she wasn’t announced until much later. Also, if you follow HPU’s trail, Hendrix’s former Associate Head Coach from HPU got the Western Carolina job recently. I’m sure Hendrix planned to bring her along originally. Also, heard rumors of the kid transferring getting into some trouble. Regardless, we need to give Coach Hendrix a chance. It has been a rocky start but I’m sure there’s a lot we don’t know. Her staff has already offered several kids so they’re working. We just need to support.

    Facts are not a staple of message boards....rumor, speculation and WAGs are the currency....here and elsewhere.

    Agreed, but it is a little strange to have some of the administrative positions filled before assistant coach positions.

    I doubt she would post  "Also, heard rumors of the kid transferring getting into some trouble."

    Touché but no, not named DeUnna. I’ve never felt the need to comment prior to all the negativity I’ve been reading since the hire. I do agree that it’s strange to finish administration on staff before all assistants and there’s so much that needs to be done to stay on path with Duffy’s recruiting success... BUT I am hoping for a successful career for Coach Hendrix. I think that’s what we all want whether we agree or like every move made or the timeline.

    You are correct unless the SID just hasn't made any official announcement.

    You guys are a bunch of spoiled brats. What more do you guys really want?!?

    Miami finished 1st in the MAC in esports and quidditch, and finished in the top 10 in synchronized marbles.

    What more can you really ask for???

    I don't think we had a Spike team.  Georgia v Texas A&M were featured on ESPN for the college championship last weekend.

    I thought and hoped the quidditch thing was a joke, but after a google search I saw that we actually won that. Definitely mixed feelings here ...

    I’m sympathetic to the point that we aren’t having huge success in the marquee sports, but we did win the Reese and Jacoby Trophies this year, and that isn’t made-up shit like quidditch. Kind of insulting to our swimmers and field hockey players and volleyball players, etc.

    More over, club competitions of any type have exactly zero impact on the athletic department so it's not even a relevant discussion point except to say "these Miami students are succeeding in something I think is silly and that makes me mad because these other Miami students aren't succeeding in something I don't think is silly".

    There isn’t a single person on this board that wouldn’t trade both the Reese’s and the Pieces trophies for one win vs UC in football in the last 14 years.

    I think being asked to pretend that the Reese’s and the Pieces trophies matter, or that they are some replacement for the lack of success experienced in our revenue-generating sports, is a bigger insult than not feigning interest in the sports you mentioned.

    Chuck- Cmon man. We actually won quidditch and esports this year.

    Point is, that the athletic department uses their success in the minor sports as a crutch, to cover up their failures in football, MBB, WBB, and hockey.

    Almost July and still no 3rd AC.

    So, we save a few salary dollars while losing recruits and eventually games due to lack of full roster.
    It’s called Miami Math.

    Could this be related to internal academic affairs and/or budget cuts? I know that a new provost is starting soon (BTW, he called us Miami University of Ohio on Twitter), and a few positions are being closed due to budget issues. For example, the Oxford airport is now unmanned - the gentleman who worked there was recently dismissed because the job was closed (Miami argued budget issues when closing this position)

    I don't know anything about an additional WBB Assistant Coach (and frankly I don't think it matters much anymore) but my daughter has practiced with Miami's quidditch team. Nice kids to welcome a 14 year old.

    The third assistant has been announced: Sahar Nusseibeh, who was the associate head coach at Manhattan last season.  Was previously an assistant at Manhattan, Bowling Green, and Holy Cross, and a GA at Cincinnati.  She played for American.

    My understanding is the coaches we had were/are out recruiting. I heard something about a guard from England. Glad the staff is complete and that the speculation was wrong that we didn't have the money for a 3rd AC. Interesting hire.

    June was a quiet period on the WBB recruiting calendar, so they weren't off campus recruiting.  Hopefully they had some unofficial visits though.

    I thought the third assistant may have started a week or two ago and they were just waiting to announce because of an HR/hiring hold up.  Looks like she tweeted that yesterday was day one for her so she really did just start work.  She should have the month of July to get to know the team and get up to speed during access workouts.
