So he essentially has 1 more hire to make? It'll be interesting to see who that last coach is and what ties he brings in terms of recruiting.

Forrest sounds good, but Leonard seems pretty underwhelming if he's anymore than an admin, especially when you consider the money LSU was willing to spend on assistants


the admin spots are usually for young guys with little experience. I hope the third spot on the bench is for a guy familiar with La. Change of heart on Livingston. Maybe White or just keep Scott...

white, yes.

Scott, no. Hell no.

WBRZ adds this about Leonard
quote:

Leonard is more of an administrator type who helped with scouting the opposition and preparing travel plans and logistics for the team.

Scott's a good coach for the bigs. and the recruits really liked him. He's literally the only coach on staff I ever heard anyone talk nicely about

don't really care to keep the prettiest fat girl around from the previous staff. For all the raves some give Scott for his recruiting, his results were mixed

Leonard’s background also includes serving as president and owner of his own advertising and consulting firm in Memphis.


oh hells yeah...

flat top on scout says it doesn't look like white is getting the gig either. If this staff is made up of all UNT transplants I'll be pretty damn disappointed

Maybe the rumors of Oney are true, and Jones is setting it up to where the primary recruiting locations are:

Forrest - TX
Jones - LA
Oney - MS

It won't be all UNT guys. It's looking like a JC coach will come in. Someone said the JC coach would be bringing players with him, but I think that was just speculative reporting based on someone lurking the recruiting board.

seems like johnny is setting himself up to be the main recruiter in state. probably will end up going with a former hs coach as a liaison/admin guy.

my only question about Forrest is the guy actually a good recruiter or someone who was able to reel in guys with grade issues that wouldn't qualify elsewhere?

I don't know if Oney is being hired or not, but he definitely qualifies as a "Louisiana guy" if hired.

From Louisiana, played high school basketball in Louisiana, was a high school head coach in Louisiana, coached at Grambling, Nicholls and ULM, played and coached at Ole Miss, coached at a Mississippi junior college. Not a bad resume.

We settled for a head coach, why wouldn't we settle for assistants? Somewhere, CT has his feet propped up on a big wooden desk smoking a cigar and laughing with Dale about the coup they pulled using Alleva as their latest stooge.
