If backs make up 13% should they make up more than 13% of the hires?
Blacks are 50% of the sport in America in major DI and at the highest levels of the sport for several generations. At the NCAA Championships and USATF Nationals it's mostly black. At the USATF and AAU Jr. Olympic nationals it's about 80% black. The coaches should reflect that.
OR maybe the fact that theres so many white coaches involved in track producing 50-80 pct black athletes at ncaa and usatf shows that white coaches are working well with black athletes. Why change that and risk that the numbers change? Seems like you want to take a chance that black athlete's numbers drop. Thats not nice...

It’s not about “learning” the event...
It’s about logistically covering 8 jumping events at any meet, and providing a high level of service to the athletes. Yes 8 because of men and women. Pole Vault and High Jump can go on for hours...it’s literally impossible to cover these events with one person.
If you have the facilities and the time - you can space them out in training and that is feasible.
The beauty of the track events...they only happen one at a time...
All this - “I have to be there to cover the warm up - warm down - walk them into the tent - they can’t be by themselves” stuff is a failure of mental resilience training by the coach...
Soo, any head coach disregarding the above challenges of an event area is sending a very clear message... either I don’t care about those events, or I only care about 1 or 2 of those events - normally the horizontals
Ereng UTEP to KY.

Why? you ask.
Robert hasn't spoken to the guy who could do a great job for the school. A guy whose love for the sport is on daily display. A guy definitely under everyone's radar. A guy without a huge ego to threaten anyone. A guy who went to a school with its own crazy fan base for their teams. A guy who understands NIKE and the expectations from former Ducks.
Let's see if someone shows up suddenly with those qualities. He is out there.
don't be so sure wrote:
The Ereng to Kentucky would make sense as he has been in some trouble at UTEP recently. Many of his athletes contacted other schools about transferring. UTEP always has a problem fielding a cross country team since Ereng won't recruit anyone other than Kenyans.
I've heard that multiple positions are open at Notre Dame? Which ones are they hiring for?
