Nice, now young Mr. Reese, hit the weight room and eat some carbs.

And learn how to play actual defense without fouling out in the first half.

I’m looking for a huge sophomore jump, especially given Willard’s propensity for developing talent.

Adam Zagoria reports that Tony Skinn and David Cox are two of the top candidates for positions on Willard’s staff.

Skinn is a former George Mason guard who played at the Takoma Academy (Takoma Park, MD) in high school. He’s currently an assistant coach at Ohio State, but was on Willard’s staff from 2018-2021.

Cox is a Washington, DC native who played at William & Mary and was recently fired as Rhode Island’s head coach after four seasons. He has experience as an assistant coach with Rutgers and Georgetown, as well as Archbishop Carroll High School (Washington, DC).

Jeff Ermann reporting that Willard will hire Skinn to his staff. He’s moving quickly to build his bench.

Sounds like Cox will officially join Skinn on Willard’s staff. Both have strong recruiting connections to the local high schools and AAU organizations.

Willard is expected to round out his coaching staff with Grant Billmeier, a former Seton Hall player who’s been on Willard’s staff since he took the job in 2010 and was promoted to associate head coach before last season.

I was hoping they would hire someone with Baltimore ties, but I am happy that he seems to have his staff in place so soon.  

 

Hit the ground running and try to win over this past seasons better players while augmenting the squad as best you can with guys from the portal or maybe some late freshman recruits.

Dockery has entered the transfer portal. The first of many.

Dockery is staying local, and heading to Howard.

Balt Sun: How can Maryland men’s basketball return to the top of the sport? Coaches say start by landing top local recruits.

Good for him.  I hope he does well.  He really never got a shot to show what he could do.

I guess he becomes the lead assistant on Willard's staff.

Contract information has been released for Cox and Skinn.

 

Tony Skinn: 1 year, $475,000

David Cox: 1 year, $400,000

 

We should hear an official announcement on Billmeier's hire sometime soon, but he's reportedly already been recruiting with the rest of the staff.

Are those good salaries comparatively?  I don't have much frame of reference.

A quick Google search didn't turn up anything particularly useful as far as assistants throughout Power 5. What I did find is that Kentucky gave Orlando Antigua, formerly of Illinois, a 3-year deal before this season that started at $850,000 and bumped up to $900,000 in the final year. That is believed to be the richest contract for an assistant coach (private schools aren't required to report coaches' salaries).

 

Additionally, Kentucky also lured Ron Coleman from Illinois with a 3-year deal that starts at $450,000 and ends at $550,000, closer in line with what MD is paying.

Cox and Skinn are also making a bit more than Bruce Shingler ($300,000) and Danny Manning ($275,000) did as assistants last season.

 

Manning received an additional $700,000 to serve as the team's interim head coach.

With Holloway now officially replacing Willard at SH, we'll see if there was anything to the rumor Billmeier would be a candidate for the St. Peters job.

Where did Holloway go college?

Ok, I’ll stop. I’m all aboard the Willard train until they give me a reason not to be.
