SJU fired a lifer and a human college basketball brand jfor... Billy Lange? I figured they must’ve had a grand slam hire lined up when they ditched Phil. This is confounding.
This is very similar to UD’s firing of Don Donoher. Hopefully it turns out better.

UD hired Jim O’Brien who won 46% of his games as HC at Wheeling Jesuit and after an NCAA appearance with Donoher’s players proceeded to go 39 and 77 at UD. Incidentally O’Brien is Jack Ramsey’s son-in-law and SJU letterman. This SJHawk, was a near total disaster.

I was close to sjhawk’s age at the time. He has time to wait another 25 years for an Archie Miller to come in a win a few games.

Hilariously, want to guess who the guy is who's pushing for Lange to get the job?

If it’s Ramsey, he was an influencer when O’Brien was hired. I recall that was a big deal at the time

Jack Ramsey is dead, so no.

The guy pushing Lange is O'Brien himself.

I guess I should have known that Dr. Jack passed. I have such bad memories from the O’Brien tenure at UD that I can’t be optimistic about anything that he is associated with. He seemed to be a good guy, but I remember the Flyer’s not being able to in bounds the ball in their own court.

I'm pretty sure you wrote in the thread I made here when Dr. Jack died.
