I wrote to the SID about how slow the search was for the new Mens and Women's hoops coach (both jobs opened the end of March) and got the following response today (June 5):
"The women's position will begin campus interviews later this week. The men's position has been narrowed to eight with campus interviews expected to follow in the next week or so. Both positions were closed for application on May 16. These have taken some time as UW-Oshkosh is the middle of hiring four other head coaches as well".
Really? How is the new coach supposed to recruit for next year for a last place team that lost their best player when every other D3 program has filled their roster already? They are already behind for 13-14 recruiting! Also heard some scuttlebutt that financial problems are a factors with so many coaches to hire.
Ugh. At least the football team is pretty good (though who will ever beat UWW?)
