SFU let a good coach and more importantly a first class person go, but I am confident he will ultimately be the winner. I' m guessing Don had to endure much with the AD's son on his staff. My guess is the AD is in his late 50s and saw this as the last opportunity to get his son the HC position. I imagine Rob got a 5 year contract and the AD will retire a year before his son gets fired, leaving his firing to the new AD and new president. You heard it here first.
Sounds logical to me. My guess on the timing of this change is that it looks like St. Francis should be much improved next year, with virtually their whole team back plus the return of All-NEC guard Umar Shannon. If they had improved dramatically under Friday's watch, it might have been tough to fire him next year. Plus making the move now almost assures that his son will "improve" the team next year - which he can use to justify the coaching change. In the long run, I imagine things will get worse, not better.
