I'm assuming Pelletier is going to be the #1 assistant. I hope there's someone else coming in because Baker and Brudish are not experienced assistants.
They're D2. Have an awesome sophomore I'd love to see at UMBC...Jon Rothstein reports that the final assistant spot at UMBC will be filled by Danny Lawson. Currently head coach at D-3 Emmanuel College in Boston, he was on Ferry's staffs at Duquesne and LIU.
When we had offered now Lipscomb G Romeoa Ferguson from Belmont Abbey I remembered a playoff game vs. that D2 Emmanuel I watched.Yeah there's one down South that I got confused too.
Sounds familiar.Looks like they had their whole 2020-21 season cancelled. But Lawson took Emmanuel from a bad team to back to back 18+ win seasons. I don't know how good this staff will be but I do like that he's got an assistant with HC experience on the staff.
It's just so weird to see new faces.
Just came here to say this. For an AE level staff it's solid. Ferry hired some guys he knows but they're qualified. Baker might not have "experience" but...this is how you get it and climb the ladder going from a GA at Big 10 to video guy/ops guy at a MAC school to AE assistant coach. I imagine having strong DC/MD ties from his youth, plus the AAU should at least ingratiate the new staff to the local landscape. Getting a very recent AE assistant also helps with jumping right in to understand league personnel too.Seems like a good staff, D3 coach of the year, experienced D1 recruiter , the one I have no idea about experience wise is the Baker one but I believe he is connected to the Maryland area? I watched Ferry teams at both Adelhpi and LIU, extremely strong offensive coach.
