Terry Pluto wrote an insightful column today about the MAC's coaches.
One point made a lot of sense to me:
"[Jim] Christian and [Gary] Waters both were far from their recruiting bases. Both were at schools where basketball was a lost cause for years. Both discovered they could not turn the situation around, no matter how hard they worked."
Leaving for a good opportunity is one thing (see John Groce), and it's an excellent long-term decision. Leaving for just a bigger check is another, and it often results in lost years.
All of this is to say, Keith Dambrot made the right call by turning down an extra $200,000 per year at Duquesne.
