Re: Coaching changes - NCAA Div. 1
I'm surprised, but happy for Coach Shelton. I've followed GT since 2008 and befriended a few players and I remember the first time I met Coach Shelton face-to-face at the 10k in ATL and was just in awe. He is such a smart and insightful coach and UF is lucky to get him. It's a shame he's leaving GT because he has brought so much to that school and I can't see him anywhere else. I just feel for the incoming recruiting class (and Elizabeth Kilborn, their lone senior) as he is a majority of the reason they committed. He utilizes a player's potential and adds more. It'll be interesting how the program changes and how everything will pan out.
