  You are probably going to see a few players leave or not show up if they  are freshmen.  Could be even a weaker team next year than expected.

I am afraid this could quite possibly be the case, Seawolf97.. This is going to be a very slow, and painful recovery for us. Coach P leaves when his best player graduates. I think is skelly. Sorry, but I do.. He leaves us with an empty tank!!

Can't blame Coach for taking that money- that's the type of deal that will keep his family comfortable for the rest of their lives.

Again, I want Shawn to make a measured decision. I know its appealing to stick with the known commodity in Jay Young but it would be silly to not test the waters and see what the interest is out there. We won't poach an assistant from Kentucky or Duke, but there isn't a laundry list of more appealing mid-majors. Like I've said, we have great facilities, a very passionate fanbase, and an appealing location.

If we lose some players to transfer, I understand and its part of the process. However that's a cost I'd be more than willing to make if it means finding the right coach who will help us be competitive in the long run.

i could be wrong on this but i see that pikiell was getting just over $300k.  if the RU deal is 1.6 for 5 years, what raise exactly is he getting?  a guarantee?  signing bonus / performance bonus???

Last year, Pikiell made $455K, which includes camps and bonuses.

I suppose this is somewhat expected of Warney endorsing Pikiell and Rutgers, but man. This sucks. What about your school??????

Coaches come. Coaches go. When they leave, we should ask ourselves if they left the program in a better place than when they took it over and gives thanks if they did.

There's no doubt that Coach Pikiell did that.

Thank you, Coach. And best of luck.

And now it's up to Jay Young or whomever we pick to raise the stature of Coach Pikiell's program to even greater heights. It might not be in a year or two. It might be in eleven. But that's the job.

And that's how a Stony Brook becomes a Gonzaga.

Newsday: http://www.newsday.com/sports/college/college-basketball/stony-brook-ad-shawn-heilbron-pledges-national-search-for-steve-pikiell-s-successor-1.11606402

Heilbron: ďThatís at the top, someone who has been at and knows how to recruit at a strong academic school. We also want someone who preaches and knows how to teach defense. We donít want to lose our identity as a defensive-minded team. And itís someone who cares about these student-athletes as people and wants to develop them as young men and basketball players.Ē

Also sounds like Jay Young has some interesting options. In my opinion, the longer this drags, the less likely it is the job is his.

Pikiell intro conference at Rutgers.

He did a nice job. Awfully optimistic though. Great to see the whole SBU crew there to support him, including Jameel and Trey.

All new SUNY positions must remain open for at least 30 days before announcing the new hire.

As long as everyone keeps in mind this is the America East. At best we may move to the CAA at some point in the future .  The ACC isn't calling yet . Very long way to go .

I would love to see all sports move to the CAA.

Without a doubt. I think the time is right to make the move now.. Some people will argue the fact that the AE is just as good as the CAA in most sports. I disagree except for Lacrosse.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again--I'd love to see the America East and CAA merge!!  If you check out the overlaps of sports and universities it's a natural.
