Geno Ford's new basketball coaching staff is coming about quite well. Armon Gates is already in and from everything I have heard, Rob Senderoff isn't far behind. Senderoff is really a key for me. Sure, many people know him as the fall guy at Indiana. If you don't know about that you can read some about it here.
Anyways, Senderoff was at Kent State before hand. I do not know the man personally. I do not know if he is a dirty recruiter. I do not know if he is clean recruiter. All I know is Senderoff was responsible for bringing Mike Scott, Rodriquez Sherman and Chris Singletary to Kent State. Arguably three of the most important players on Kent State's roster last year.
If Senderoff can continue recruiting to players of that caliber to a MAC school then why wouldn't you want him on the staff? Unless he really is that dirty, which I am not ready to judge him for one year under Kelvin Sampson. Last I heard, the hire was up to University President Lester Lefton. hopefully it gets done soon enough.
Another interesting story is that of assistant coach Eric Haut. Haut played at Kent State. Haut likes it here, but he also likes coaching with Jim Christian. It is no secret that Christian would like to take Haut with him to TCU and I heard an offer is on the table. The decision could go either way.
