Mercer: what happened to Bailey? Wims?
Maybe they've already hired Wims and are just advertising the position! Wims actually did better with the distance girls than Bailey did and he only worked with them for 4 months![/quote]
Wims did better with the distance girls? As fas as I know it was the GA, Pauric McLaughlin, who was the key to the success of that program last season, during track! It wasn't a lot of success, but it was the best season in mercers program history! The ladies bought into what he was trying achieve with them and I know at least 80% of those girls set PRs and her turned freshman into runners to look out for in the southern conference! Finally, the Southern Conference is a distance oriented conference and to have 3 all conference come from a program that was going nowhere, under Coach Bailey, is pretty impressive from a GA who was thrown into the deep end and to act as a head coach! To me this is pretty profound that an administration team would let this happen but it goes to show the route that mercer is headed down!
