Rodney Harmon named head coach at Georgia Tech.
Glad GT is getting a nice developmental coach, nice guy to fill Bryan's shoes. Hope the Jackets have a good year. Expecting and hoping big things for Kilborn. So much potential and the sweetest girl. She deserves a great senior year

Thompson did a nice job at Minnesota; now they have an opening like Fresno, GT and Stephen Austin.
I see there is a new Ad up online today for a new Head Women's Tennis Coach at the University of Maryland!

Re: Coaching changes - NCAA Div. 1

The Minnesota job has been filled up, but I don't want to say it publicly until the school does. Another school will be searching for that replacement now

Minnesota hires Chuck Merzbacher from Ohio State as their new head coach! No surprise as he's a Minnesota Alum!

Was U of M just not satisfied with Dianne or was Dianne's tenure meant to be temporary?

If OSU doesn't promote Melissa I will be suprised and disappointed.

Re: Coaching changes - NCAA Div. 1

She was subpar as a head coach at a low level so shes exactly what ADs are looking for.

If she gets it I will be unsurprised and disappointed.

Wow that post came from a dark place......I'm guessing you are judging her on paper without direct and personal knowledge of what she brings to the table.....anyway I'm anxious to see what happens.

Correct on all counts. I am judging her on her overall terrible record as a coach, both assistant and head. Whatever she brings to the table, it does not include success.

I'm glad you are only making comments about her based on the W-L stats at MTS. Using your line of thinking, if she had been an assistant at a top-10 program and then stepped-into the head-coach's shoes when they left, she would automatically be a very good coach.

Re: Coaching changes - NCAA Div. 1

We'll see with Melissa. She is an awesome assistant coach and knows what she teaches. Merz hired her because they're styles are similar. Will she be promoted? I have no idea, but we need a good coach to get those blue chips.

Re: Coaching changes - NCAA Div. 1

Aside from Ohio State (new) and Maryland, anyone know what's up with the vacant Fresno State job?

I thought I'd read someplace that Maryland hired a coach!

That's not my line of thinking at all. I think an assistant from a top-10 program is a wild card. Hard to know how much they actually did or if they just rode coattails.

I don't think it's that much of a reach to think that if she could not get it done at Middle Tennessee State that a very short time as an assistant at a competitive but not spectacular program is going to make her all of the sudden a good head coach.

I don't know her and I'm sure she's a fine person but she has done nothing in her career that shows she is ready for a potentially big-time job like Ohio State. If she had done well as the head coach at MTSU I would have a completely different opinion, but she did not do well there as an assistant or as a head coach and it's not like she really raised the level for the Buckeyes - in fact OSU did just OK while she was there.

I would have like to see someone that did well as a head coach at a lower level hired and in the absence of any good candidates fitting that description, at least an assistant that has been involved with high-achieving programs. I think OSU women should compete for Big 10 titles just like the men do and you don't go from middle of the pack to conference champs by hiring someone who hasn't outpeformed her resources at any level in coaching. Remeber, MTSU is a little diamond in the rough job - winnable conference and a nice facility!
