It’s not surprising that a former NBA head coach can recruit. These kids want to be in the league, so they see an NBA coach and jump at the chance to play for them.

What remains in question is if the former NBA head coach can actually coach a team of college kids and not pros. We’ll see how he does the next few years.

Per Gary Parrish- Nobody wanted him because of having to deal with him, his father and his entourage. As the year went on, it got worse and worse. Tardy to practice. Not going to class. And evidently the father is a real piece of work with constant demands. Embarrassing incidents at games and plenty of behind the scenes incidents. Too much baggage to deal with. I’m not a onecent fan but it’s hard to blame him for this one. I commend him for sending him packing. First time somebody has told Emoni “No”. As the fellow before me said, it’s pretty telling that he was down to Eastern Michigan and that’s it. Word gets around among coaches. I guarantee he and Dad would have gone to a higher profile school if it had been offered.

Penny, the known "de"-veloper of talent. Go to Memphis, get worse! What an awesome recruiting pitch.
You do know he had 3 guys off his team going into the NBA. Not a huge fan of Coach Penny, but to have 2 drafted and one sign a two-way contract with the DUBS ain't bad. That will be his recruiting pitch. The problem last year was having this Diva on the team. The word was he wanted to come back and Coach Penny cut ties on him.
