    I would think that the assistant coaching position at Rutgers would attract many interested, qualified candidates with an offensive minded background – especially given the promise of a significant upgrade in personnel in the ’23 & ’24 classes. I think we all agree that a good fit with the existing staff is a must. I’m hoping Pikiell is casting a wide net beyond just old coaching relationships and/or a UCONN connection. I hope Brett MacConnell is an available and viable candidate, among others. To me, this is an important position that needs to be filled with a carefully chosen coach. I have no reason not to believe that Pikiell is doing his due diligence and will only take action when he finds the right fit.
