Take away Dabo Swinney and that national championship and

DRad has done a pretty average/below average job. Hiring Monte is his best move by far, and all the rest have been very questionable.

Soccer has been excellent.

Don't think he hired Noonan, did he? Thought that was also

TDP.

He didn't hire Dabo either.

Seems logical to exclude the one thing we wanted most.

Baseball is better, soccer is better. So to reverse your point is basketball the only thing your disappointed with?

That pretty much is my only point of contention, but it's been that way since, well, I'm 65, and it seems like it's always been that way.

I don't disagree. Monte Lee was such an obvious choice and a great fit, we really didn't even need to look anywhere else.

That does have to count for something though. We went from a sputtering baseball program to now one of the hottest teams in the country and a legitimate contender 1/3 of the way through the season.

DRad didn't hire Brad. TDP, same guy that hired Dabo.

Once he signed Brownell he officially become DRad's hire.

I don't know who hired the men and women soccer coaches, but the have been excellent hires.

TDP hired both despite the criticism he "killed" soccer.

DRad has essentially:
Hired Monte
Hired Audra Smith
Extended Brownell twice now
Hired the Volleyball coaches he just fired

Looks like he is 1-4 on hiring.

Well if he gets demerits for extending Brownell, shouldn't he get credit for extending Dabo, the golf coaches and the soccer coaches???

There's more to being an AD than just hiring/firing coaches

and negotiating contracts. Does DRad even do the negotiating himself? I would imagine there's some kind of financial/legal team in place to help with that kind of stuff.
