      I believe Mr. Herbster parents were in the military and he moved around some. Here is a link to his bio. http://www.goyotes.com/genrel/herbster_david00.html

        GoJacks is correct. David played basketball at Virginia Tech. Very nice man, much like your AD.

          I thought he should have gotten it last time but that's just me.

            I think its a good hire but what do I know? He is familiar with the Summit League and MVFC, he has experience and he seems to like being at USD.

            I would be curious to know what his involvement in the Meierkort firing was but that is just me being curious and maybe a little petty.

              What can you do for me now? Seems to have been a question on President Abbotts mind when he selected the prior AD. Sayler did get things going, so now Herbster deserves the job. I think he will do okay. Meierkort, now thats a subject all of its own. I think Sayler and Abbott were not pleased with the direction the program was going. If there are suspicions of theft, no one is going to be public about this matter. If they had a smoking gun, Ed would have had his day in court by now. I think it was a bunch of small things that accumulated and which created a big problem with boosters. Bringing in Joe Glenn seems to indicate that in my mind. A quick fix in my opinion, but they needed someone with D1 experience who cared about USD.

                Yeah I've played against him and he's a good player even at his age. Nice guy.

                  What happened at UNO that he left only after 3 years?

                    Good question, I fuzzily recall that there were some financial and admin problems which he was not part of but he grabbed the assist job at USD to get away from it all. I believe it was before Trev Albert arrived.

                        Thanks for shaking the dust off. Things have improved a great deal under Trev Albert and others at UNO since 2006.
