How is it that UVM, with Kyle, a fixture at Patrick Gym since he was about 5, as a ball boy and as a Cieplicki (THE Vermont basketball family) has not made this change public! I know some will assert it has ALL to do with the KE allegations, but please offer something to us fans!None of these positions are technically allowed to coach the players/team. However, that does not mean that they aren't near the court during drills, workouts, practices, etc. They may not say anything to the players directly but they can certainly address the coaching staff with things they see. There are always ways around the rules.
However, your last statement about being able to do those things if the staff is gone is very incorrect. You are allowed 4 total coaches (the head and 3 assts) to do the recruiting and coaching. If a coach is on the road recruiting, that means you have 3 coaches running practice. All the coaches have to pass NCAA rule certification tests. None of the other staff with the fancy titles take it thus they aren't certified to do anything of the like.
