There are still a few coaches out there who don't chase around every penny.

It was very disappointing to many of us that the Administration did not keep Coach Light, who was (is) an excellent Coach. But considering the restrictions you mentioned, getting a young hungry and up and coming Coach like Dustin is as good a result as Adams State could hope for, especially given the salary limitations. Hoping Rock gets a swift landing at another good program.
Umass fails to hire coach
Dear Cross Country and Track and Field Alumni,
I write to share an update with you related to our coaching transition in the cross country program.
This past month we conducted a nationwide search to find the next leader for menâ€™s Cross Country. We had a quality pool of candidates interested in the opportunity and narrowed it down to three coaches who traveled to campus for interviews. After meeting with the finalists, we felt one candidate rose to the top and he was offered the position. Unfortunately, due to many considerations that had nothing to do with UMass other than the timing of our opportunity, he did not accept our offer. At that point, we took a step back, re-evaluated the other candidates, and decided that with the beginning of the season upon us it would be smart to suspend the search.
We are very fortunate that our new Coach Emeritus, Ken Oâ€™Brien, is still wanting to serve this University and has agreed to coach the team through the fall season under the direction of our new Director David Jackson.
Given the timing of search and our desire to find the absolute best possible fit for UMass, we plan to go back out to a nationwide search in the winter/spring to find our next head coach. This is a positive position for the long-term.
We are looking forward to a great season and appreciate your continued support of our program.
Lake Erie is still without an AD. So until that's rectified, I don't see them hiring a permanent coach.

What about Lake Erie and Limestone? Who did they hire for their cross jobs?
Between this and the BBALL HC blunder, this AD is really not looking great for UMASS. Lucky they didn't fire OB.
This is UMass' own fault, specifically the director who aimed too high in the search for a men's only position with one scholarship invested in distance. Plenty of up and coming coaches would've jumped at this opportunity and done well with it - instead UMass made a massive blunder and interviewed people who were never taking the job and only using it for a raise or leverage in their current job. In this case aiming lower would've been the right thing to do and they could've gotten a very good coach to start the transition now rather than kicking the can further down the road. Hopefully they figure this out before they try to hire again next time.
This isn't an English class, let it go.. create another thread to teach proper English grammar if it bothers you so much.

Hopefully Royal Runner isn't a student at EMU! Based on your use of "their" instead of "they're" it doesn't say much for the fundamental grasp of english at EMU. Maybe you're Power 5 coach can help you (JK).
