Autry son is graduating so I don’t see any reason for him stick around cause JB doesn't want him to succeed him
Since most expect JB to coach only 3 more years, won't be so attractive to potential hires. Same with some recruits.The job openings thus far:
Hoping a MAAC or American East job opens up that could interest a current member of our staff.
As we need a shakeup.
If JB won’t change we are screwed.There isn’t an assistant in the country that will get to change JB’s offensive or defensive philosophy. He will do what he always does. He won’t change. You’re kidding yourself if you think a new assistant coach will change anything.
Look at it this way. JAB is ultra competitive. That's why he is still coaching. He hates losing and he knows how painful it has been the last few years. He is very loyal to his assistant coaches and doesn't want to push them out of the nest. But he knows status quo equals a bubble team that doesn't sniff a top 25 ranking.There isn’t an assistant in the country that will get to change JB’s offensive or defensive philosophy.

I endorse GMac for any and all of them.

The status quo isn’t working and blaming it all on sanctions is bullchit.
Sanctions aren’t why our offense sucks.
GMac isn’t a serious candidate for the next HC or if he is we are screwed.He wanted the Siena job bad this past offseason. Called in all his favors to have people reach out to Siena and recommend him and all that.
Something to think about for anyone who throws his name out there as a potential Boeheim successor...
John Gillon was a good offensive PG and that offense was garbage unless White or other people were making tough jump shots.I think even our current offense would make a big jump with a PG that can do something, though.
And just like last year, I still question how many “schemes” there are that would work with a bad PG and a bad offensive center.

You can’t run isolation basketball in college unless you have Duke or Kentucky NBA talent.
It’s not hard to defend. It just takes effort and flooding the paint.
Watch Villanova or Iowa or peer programs play offense.That offense was middle of the pack statistically, if I recall correctly.
And I don’t know if I’d call Gillon good. Decent. Way better than what we’ve had lately, but in terms of SU PG’s, he’s middle of the pack IMO.

The guy gets crap for his job as an assistant. I don’t think he is that bad as an assistant. I would call him adequate. Which is fine.
I don’t think he challenges JB at all though.
I like Autry more but Autry needs to up his game honestly.
He is the top assistant.
We need him to reel in some talent.
So JB is hurting Autry in recruiting?Autry is the guy in my mind who should be free of any criticism. He’s been a beast bringing guys in since he got here and been carrying us in recruiting lately. The reasons we aren’t landing studs are reasons that have been mentioned by some here and are out of he or any of our assistants control.
Jerami, Mike G, McCullough, Ennis, Thompson, White III, Roberson (might be wrong on this one it could’ve been Hop I can’t remember for sure), Dolezaj, Frank, OB, Guerrier, Carey are all Red ‘s guys off the top of my head. Not to mention he had us in great shape with Matt Coleman but we chose the Quade strategy. Had us in great shape with Jamal Murray too but Boeheim for whatever reason didn’t press for him.
