: : Coaching pedigree is worthless if you canít relate to the players or recruit enough talent to compete.
: Agree that style of play is important in that your players need to buy in to the style of play. It is on the coach to make the connection.
: Agree that if the head coach can't connect to the players success will be challenging.
: Getting enough talent to compete is a big challenge at LMU and will continue to be a challenge no matter who they hire.
Was at LMU at time Dunlap was an undergrad. Had personality of a cardboard box. Apparently lack of people skills were still an issue 40 years later.
The right coach can win there-has to be a "name" and play an attractive style. Fan support will quickly follow. WCC is a much better league than 30 years ago-and LMU is a school that given location/resources sells itself if things are done right.
