Re: 2018-2019 Saint Joseph's Hawks
Not really. He was well-liked, FWIW, but he is also a former player. There's a lot of "he'll be a great head coach someday" sentiment but that's often what people say when a popular guy leaves. I'll let you know after the coming season. Bucknell has been very successful under Nathan Davis but it's been happening with Paulsen's players. Bucknell's two best players this year were seniors Kimbal MacKenzie and Nate Sestina -- the last of Paulsen's recruits. The cupboard isn't exactly bare, but it's suspect, so we will have to see. Recruiting to Bucknell and to St. Joseph's are two different animals, though, and he presumably has his Philly bona fides.
