It has changed, but toward smaller lineups and fewer opposing low-post scorers. What is needed most now for interior D is the ability to protect the rim against drives (via shot blocking and shot altering). For sure, you still need post defense against those teams with a big in-close scorer, but it comes up less frequently (and if the newer rule interpretations are used is very difficult relative to standing nearby and going for the block).

I don't see why Much couldn't develop to provide some of that--he's likely to get stronger, for instance--but that question is separate from what you have him do offensively. For example, with Brennan and Much, you could make Brennan defend the post but play offensive wing while Much played high-post hub on offense and wing on defense.
