Re: Fan Fest 2019

Agreed, spirited, enthusiastic players and Roof seemed to be the most enthusiastic coach from my perspective. The concessions ran out of everything (which I’m sure wasn’t much for this event) within 30 minutes when cold bottled water was needed. I wish I would have at least carried in my boys’ wate...

People it is true, my goodness why can't you believe posts on this board over hoopdirt which gets the information from people.
Because we enjoy speculating about speculation. It’s what happens on these forums.

Re: Assistant Hoops Coaches

from hoopdirt today...

It sounds like new Appalachian State head coach Dustin Kerns will retain current Mountaineers associate head coach Jason Allison. The former VMI assistant has been on the App State bench for the past five seasons.

Re: Young to Va Tech

I didn't intend to start a rumor, I was just speculating since Kerns spent some years with Young at Wofford. I also figured that the associate HC there would have a pretty decent shot at the job. Here's the latest from Hoopdirt... Early names at Wofford include current Terriers associate head coach ...

Re: Young to Va Tech

Hope Kerns sticks with us and doesn’t jump to Wofford I don’t see this being remotely likely since we’ve already hired him, can’t see him leaving like that. Good thing we already hired him though. If he had his choice between both I wonder which he would have gone with. It was a different situation...

Re: Basketball DK Edition

not sure about specific strategies, but if his work at Presbyterian is any indication, we will shoot a lot of 3's, share the ball and take care of the ball (assist-turnover ratio should improve), much like Wofford. I'm looking forward to seeing Kern's offense come to fruition on the court, although ...

Re: Assistant Hoops Coaches

FWIW, Allison is now listed as the only assistant coach on the appstatesports basketball page. All others have been removed. I'm not sure if it's a sign that he's staying, but it's interesting.

Re: MBB: Welcome Coach Dustin Kerns

We are a football school. The expectations are high. We are at the top of our conference. We go 8-4 in football and it is viewed as a down season. We go 24-8 in basketball and that’s the best thing since sliced bread. The expectations are different, plain and simple, at least right now. I’m happy t...

Re: MBB: Welcome Coach Dustin Kerns

After browsing at Kerns’ roster at Presby, I’m even more impressed that he won 20 games in year 2 on the job. He had virtually zero players who were offered by other d1 schools and still managed to win 20, go 12-3 at home, and beat every higher ranked conference team other than Radford at least once.

I know Cross had a good tenure at UTA, but when I saw his team play us in Boone last year, they looked lazy and unmotivated.

I was hoping for Lutz, but Kerns seems to be a good fit. Looking forward to next season!
Yep. I think/hope “fit” is the key with Kerns over other prospects.

Re: Men's Basketball Coaching Search

Kerns is the guy I’ve mentioned for weeks now after perusing ncaa stats and seeing Presbyterian pop up near the top of several categories. Nobody seemed to get very excited though. I thought App would work for him since he’s proven he can win with a previously struggling d-1 program in short amount ...

Re: Men's Basketball Coaching Search

Kerns won 20 games at PC this year. Averaged 15.5 wins per year. Ten years prior to his arrival PC averaged 8.9 wins, with a high year of 14 wins. Again, an impressive job and a better fit than Craft. Kerns is from Kingsport, TN. Craft is from Fla. Judge for yourself. I like his potential as well, ...

Re: Men's Basketball Coaching Search

Sounds like the Lutz ship has sailed. Just listened to his interview on the David Glenn show and he pretty much said App is looking for someone younger. Truly sounded like he really wanted the opportunity to coach our team. Really hope we don’t regret passing on him. Betting our budget was a factor...

Re: Men's Basketball Coaching Search

I’m actually more impressed with Kerns than some other candidates based on the head coaches that he has worked for, and that he has turned Presbyterian around in a very short time. Of course, there are other factors such as personality, charisma, etc. that would need to fit as well. I’m happy that w...

Re: Men's Basketball Coaching Search

FWIW, Jim Fox was never mentioned on hoop dirt or any other source for the month or so leading up to his hire, until the day before it was official...and that was with a not near as savvy AD in charge. Of course, that could have been due to other candidates backing out.
