    Default Summit Coaches MBB & WBB 2018-19

    As I look at the Summit situation, it may be timely to begin the season's job performance scorecard for Summit coaches. It may be a tough subject, but it certainly requires observation as the MBB is taking a dive to unseen depths recently. I would point out the diminishing return in Fargo and Tulsa as the most glaring. North Dakota, Omaha, Denver, & WIU have few D1 victories among them while losing some close ones to so so competition. Coffman, Lee, and Otz are guys that the teams hope to retain. Billups at Denver will get at least through his contract to build a better team. Mills may have found the proverbial snakepit in Tulsa and look to bail or be sent out more quickly like Sutton. Richman may not draw any attention until the football season is finished. UND & Omaha lose quality players which may or may not be in the control of coaches. WIU may be content as is unless the budget concerns are remedied in Illinois.

    The WBB side is not as tenuous, but Denver's Turgeon appears to indicate that sometimes change is good. Nelson at Ft Wayne is in the 3rd season and she picked up a D1 win out of 7 D1 games. Gravina may entertain some offers following this season which appears to be down after losing 6 seniors. It may be a bit early to worry about the Fighting Hawks(2-5) since they will have the first home game tomorrow vs Milwaukee and Klabo has been producing. USD, SDSU, & Omaha are not wanting to look for replacements. Misti at ORU is likely to be at home in Tulsa unless there is some crazy event to alter her direction. Walseth in Fargo is the biggest question mark among the WBB coaches. The WBB may have a very low level of attention for her to be under the radar as she has a record of 35-90 into her 5th year. DeHoff might be applying again since she was 66-81 after 5 years.

    Once again, this report card is in the first semester. The second semester can and likely will improve for some that are underperforming at this time. It seemed relevant due to the failing RPI the MBB has turned in at this time. As always...Go Jacks!!
    Best to remember these are kids and they are doing everything they can to entertain us, be scholars, and all in all be great humans. Jackedforlife

    anyone else a little surprised coach Plitzuweit's name hasn't come up for some openings? i believe her record at usd is sitting at 80-22? not to mention some of her other accolades. no secret female coaches have an edge (not meant as a flame). it's possible there has been some contact from other programs, but, maybe she showed no interest.

    She has addressed this question in some recent interviews (KWSN?). She pretty much said the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Her mentor (current coach at Green Bay) had a similar experience going from Green Bay to Michigan and ultimately went back to Green Bay.

    If she were to get an Amy Williams Nebraska type offer, that would put the greener grass issue to the test.

    Has Men's Summit League basketball been in such a sad state of affairs since it was created in 2007?
