Man, what an offseason. I thought it would be interesting, I didn't think it would be THIS interesting. Good luck to BG. I'm sorry to see him go, but hopeful that the next coach will lead us where we all want to be.

Maybe our recruits will return? I just hope the next guy can run a better offense.

I am sad to see BG go, his passion and dedication to the UD program was apparent no matter what your thoughts about his coaching abilities might be. I wish him all the luck at GT but the UD program will live on and continue to move forward. We are UD!

What a mess is my opinion. So he doesn't want to clean up the mess he helped create with Staten. 8 years of solid community work, repping, down the drain in 2 weeks.

There are ripples here .... Henton coming? Gibson?

Dillard pretty much needs to remain, since he sat out already.

Let's just hope guys like Oliver and Benson and key cogs remain otherwise we are setback more than just losing a coach

I would not begrudge gregory leaving, except he has lotsof responsibility for creating the staten situation. Mature people would clean up the mess.

Time to find a coach with an offense and some real in game skills

What you see as beautiful, I see as a dark stormy day. I am really sad to see BG go. He has been great for UD and his basketball accomplishments, though not quite (but not far) at the bar that he, UD and us fans have set, were most certainly not a failure...over the past 2 seasons he is just a couple of wins away from being there. I was actually really looking forward to next year.

I would guess a lot of the new recruits staying will depend on who TW has in the wings...

In the end, like AC91 - I fear we may be far more worse off than we are now. Of couse, it's also possible on the flip side as well. However, I know one thing - we probably won't find a better ambassador or spokesperson for our university for a while. For all the knocks, BG was a classy dude.

The Staten mess was not all BG's doing. I think it just spun out of control and BG couldn't get it back on track. He still needed a point guard during the season. Obviously, this harmed everyone's performance during this season. I think that BG was looking down the road and saw that he had taken the Flyers about as far as he could. He is a good and honorable man and I personally will miss his character and love for the university. It is now time to replace with a similar person of character.

I can't begrudge BG. He put a solid effort forth here, IMO. I, personally, would not have forced him out the door, and I don't think that happened here. I don't have any issue with fans bringing the heat this year either. It was very ugly at times this year, and he has ultimate responsibility for that. I wish him great success at Georgia Tech.

Mixed emotions for me. There are elements of gratitude, sadness and excitement over a new coach.

Thanks BG for the solid way you led the program for the last 8 years. I think I will root for GT while you are there.

Me too. In fact, I have been "looking forward to next year" since 2003 for this program for about a decade now.

I think the only chance to keep our recruits is to hire one of the assistants.
Isn't that the musty and Butler way? Just a thought

A great day for UD! I am looking forward to the future.

I thank BG for his service, but I think this is the right move for both UD and BG. Who knows? Maybe I'll be wrong, and BG will succeed in a BCS environment. I very seriously doubt BG will succeed at GT, but we shall see. Good luck BG!

I think he's moving into a worse job than he has now, especially if the pay is comparable. Higher expectations, less fan support.

I don't think he was forced out. I'm sad to see him go because I think he was good for the program, but I'm also happy because I think it's the best move for him and for UD. Recruiting for him at UD just got a lot harder and I think he knew it.

I'm excited to see who the new coach is.

No one hates BG, we're sad to see him go under these circumstances (meaning not during the 8th consecutive sweet 16 run for UD), but it's run its course.

Good luck BG, maybe I'll drive down the street from my office to see your guys play.

On to more important matters.

Agreed. You were a great representative of the university, raised the level of the recruits, and won a game in the NCAA tournament for the first time in nearly two decades.

Very sorry to see BG move on.

I am quite thankful though that he cleaned up the Staten mess before leaving town. Our next coach can start fresh with a great group of players who believe in playing as a team without any ego or daddy issues.

Thanks for all you have done BG

Bill302 will become famous soon enough
Personally, I would love for all of the personal attacks on BG to stop. If you didn't like his coaching style...fine. But do we need to throw in comments about "minimum height requirements" etc...?

As UD "fans", we should be thanking him for representing the University well in the community and accross the country and running a clean and competitive program for the 8 years he was here.

Well, chaulk up one win for rumor mongering!

I guess BG looked at the circumstances and decided "to better git while the gitten was good"
he had burned up most of the goodwill created with the WV win and the NIT win is a year removed. his recruiting class imploded and he doesn't have any 4 stars coming in this year.
the short term two year outlook didn't bode well, for him nor the fanbase. and two more years of sub A10 play would tarnish any shine he has left here. good luck BG, i think you made the right move for yourself!
not real happy with the way this went down with him supposedly recruiting in Vegas and wabler denying any knowledge, but as divorces go this wasn't ugly

oh well who's next!!!!!

BG's Press Conference speech

I'm curious what he's going to say....will he dust off the speech he used when UD hired him...the 'win championships' speech, or will it be about rebuilding GT into an 'ACC contender'.

Any talk of 'winning ACC Championships' will be ridiculed and critiqued beyond belief both here and at any GTPride-type site.

I sure hope BG chooses his words carefully.

BG brought the program to a fairly good place. I wish him well.

The timing for UD to receive interest could not have been any more auspicious. How many times are universities left with gutted programs?
The program is in relatively good shape.

UD is at a potent point.

I never thought I would be this cheery on a Monday morning! I couldn't be happier with this news, I think this is the best possible decision for both parties. BG had taken UD as far as he could and I think we needed to part ways and the program was becoming stagnant with Gregory at the helm.

Either way, he wasn't a complete failure in the 8 years he was at the helm. Winning our first NCAA game in 20 years and winning the NIT were good accomplishments to be sure.

Best of luck, BG. You will need it and lots of it.

mixed emotions here, yeah the NIT title was nice but i think of all the unfulfilled expectations with these teams. Yeah he did improve the program but I felt he wasnt the guy to get us to the level of X and 'Zaga.

Hope he does well at GT

now the question is, who should we get, another assistant (a K ass't?) or a coach with proven experience? this time I want experience, too bad Anthony Grant had a good year at Alabama

Seriously though, I wish him the best of luck at GT. He did some good things for the program and as I've always said, he was nothing but class and a great representative of the University. That said, I think it's best that both parties have the chance to start over fresh.

That's my feeling as well. The hire probably won't happen until sometime in April and if we hire outside of BG's staff, you have to figure it will be difficult to bring in a quality new player or two for 2011; so depending on what the two recruits decide we could be looking at the same team with KD being the only addition and CW, JS, BS, and DS being the subtractions

I haven't been the biggest supporter of BG's offense scheme, lack of adjustments, etc. But I will say this: Who among us has not left a job to take on a challenge with a new, high profile employer? And more money to boot? Fresh start? I have nothing personal against BG and wish him luck. I really don't like any ACC team, so I might even catch myself rooting for the Jackets...

Now let's see if GT has the balls to come to UD Arena, especially after he knows the other side.

This is perfect. I liked BG as a person. He's def. one of the good guys. But unfortunately, he just hasn't produced much in the conference. The timing of this is such that GT will likely have to pay a pile of cash to UD, we already lost 2 of our freshmen to transferring, and we only have a 2 man recruiting class (and one or both of those may stay depending on the hire.....A guy can still dream of Shaka jumping up and down on our sideline).

Two thoughts I had


1. What does this do to LF? Is the new coach going to use him much? Is he going to want to stay now that BG has left?

2. I think BG will be a good fit for GT. I think as some have said on here a better BCS coach then a A10 coach. He seems to rise to the challenge when we need him to so I think he will be good for the program will surprise some people next year, especially since he has four good returning players.

2a. At this point would it be good to play with a short bench next year, so whoever our new coach is can start to really work towards building the program his way? We do have 4 seniors and adding one or two to that could be the start of something really good. Especially with another 3 scholarships available the year afterwards.

Depending on who is hired and when he may not have much choice - we could lose the 2 incoming recruits and not really having a shot of a brand new coach getting in on new players to replace the two that just left - so we could be looking at a roster next year, assuming no one transfers, of

Dillard
Johnson
Parker
Williams
Benson
Kav
Luke
Oliver
Hill

My daughter goes to Alabama and Anthony Grant is not leaving Alabama for Dayton, get ovet that. We had a chance to land him for a few years and that hope has passed. Even though he plays 2nd fiddle to Football he has UA on the right track with a Young team. Makes too much money and is in the SEC. Look for real Good Things from them next year.

I know Dan Hipscher is AG Associate Head Coach but what about John Brannen who his top recruiter. Spent 3 years at VCU, also at St. Bonaventure and Eastern Kentucky

Even if BG WAS forced out, he would never tell. He is that classy of a guy.

Mixed emotions for me, sad to see him go, but felt that we weren't going to progress much further with him at the helm. Excited for the future, and excited for BG. Good luck to him.

LOL. Pardon me, I respect your insight and view. But my first thought was, "His daughter is INVOLVED with Anthony Grant!!

Gregory Missed

At the bottom of the Sedric Toney Article today:

GREGORY MISSED: After freshmen Juwan Staten and Brandon Spearman transferred, there were rumblings that players had soured on coach Brian Gregory and would have preferred playing for someone else.

Not true, said junior forward Luke Fabrizius.
“Everybody on this team would say they loved playing for BG,” Fabrizius said. “People use the term ‘player’s coach.’ He was definitely a player’s coach. Everybody gets along with him. He would do anything for us, and I think we can say we’d do the same thing for him.”

At least one former Flyer shared that sentiment. When Gregory left to take the Georgia Tech job, Charles Little, who graduated in 2009 and is playing professionally in Portugal, put this post on his Facebook page: “Dayton, Ohio, the place that changed my life. Brian Gregory the man who saved my life!!”

Like his coaching or not, he didn't leave the program with too many enemies. I think it says a lot about what UD is all about.

BG Picks Assistant Coach

I didn't want to start a new thread on this, so decided to post it here.

"Former Dayton coach Brian Gregory has added an assistant coach to his staff at Georgia Tech.

New UD coach Archie Miller is still putting together his staff. Two Gregory assistants, associate head coach Billy Schmidt and Jon Borovich, who took a job with Northern Illinois, won’t be back. Cornell Mann could possible land a job on Miller’s staff. He has been a confidant for the Flyer players."

Smart BG pick. Atlanta roots, Atlanta HS player, great recruiter.

I would think Archie will do the same. Some assistants immersed in midwest
contacts and recruiting. Maybe a Big Ten guy accustomed to a different level
of recruit.
