Yaklich. He and Howard together — at least schematically — would almost certainly = a great defensive basketball team. Plus he’s young, Beilein approved, a great recruiter (of many of our current/remaining targets), and would be excellent for continuity’s sake.
Someone with somewhat recent, relevant and successful college HC’ing experience. To help JW w whatever it is he’ll need help with / knowledge. Ideally a veteran guy he can lean on, has an existing relationship with, trusts, etc. Ideally an offensive-minded coach who has experience working with guards as well.
A balls-to-the-wall recruiter. Someone who knows/is tied into the sneaker/AAU circuit. Ideally someone with a lot of South Florida, Chicago, Ohio and/or Detroit connections. A real impact maker.
Obviously not going to get everything I want in two hypothetical guys. But those are the kinds of guys I’d be seeking.
Any idea who might fit the bills?
Any rumors out there yet?
