Boneyard contrarian since 1998

And at least 2 front-office jobs -- Swin & Sue Bird.
As of April 2019, the following women were currently serving as assistant coaches in the NBA:Well one of the numbers is wrong. Since there are 3 refs listed, either there are 8 female coaches & 11 on-court OR 7 & 10.
You missed the biggest one, in terms of a front office job. In December 2018, the Indiana Pacers hired Kelly Krauskopf as the Pacer's assistant general manager -- the first female assistant general manager in NBA history.And at least 2 front-office jobs -- Swin & Sue Bird.
An excellent opportunity for Niel Ivey
Jaden Ivey, Niele's son, will -- indeed -- be a senior this year before heading off to play basketball at Purdue. He's been pretty much raised on the ND campus, so Irish fans totally get Niele wanting to stay the course with Jaden.Ivey has said she does not want to move before her son graduates HS. He will be a senior this coming year, so the likelihood she goes now seems incredibly low.
Why did Jaden choose Purdue over N.D.?Jaden Ivey, Niele's son, will -- indeed -- be a senior this year before heading off to play basketball at Purdue. He's been pretty much raised on the ND campus, so Irish fans totally get Niele wanting to stay the course with Jaden.
Given that Coach McGraw is up for more challenges (she'll have one this year ) at ND, I could see Niele looking for/entertaining opportunities if the right one arises. It's not as if she won't interview if she thinks the right one pops up, as her involvement in the Vandy process shows. So I'll be keeping an eye on what schools pop up next year in Vowelguy's annual coaching change thread.
Would be inerested in our West Coast contributors' takes on both the Cal job and/or possible candidates.
Might have a good chance of keeping Forbes...Well, Charmin Smith named new HC so here’s hoping she can get the program back on track as the person in charge. Hopefully retains recruits and Forbes as well. I like Charmin and am optimistic that things will improve. It will take a couple seasons, but there’s hope for the Bears.
