Because the country is, at best, in the COVID recovery phase and CC is in a terrible financial situation due,at least in part, to COVID, can anyone imagine a worse time to be in a search for a coach to revive a D1 basketball program? There was a posting the other day saying THE POWERS THAT BE are planning a $50M development campaign for Canisius in 2022. At first, I wondered why 2022 and not 2021. I think the answer is the same-there couldn't be a worse time than now. As to Reggie and the staff, this could be a good time for a P.R. campaign from the coaches office. A lot of us would like to get to know you better. After we all have our COVID vaccinations and things are getting back to normal (hopefully by the Summer), a little get together might be a good time. Perhaps a keg of beer in the middle of Demske Field, even if attendance had to be limited and we had to gather in shall groups. Once Upon A Time a Griff's Coach founded the Cage Club---.

If the school has a plan athletics needs to be a part of it. We’re falling behind. Look at how many of the facilities in the MAAC have been upgraded in the last 5 years. Time for the school to step up with a vision and stop just focusing on recruiting students from WNY. That’s not a strategy or vision.

Yes, but not every school is in the financial mess CC apparently is. It is a good strategy,IMO,to keep what we have in place (Reggie has an overall winning record,right?), and wait for the national financial picture to improve before launching a $50M fund raising campaign. (I wonder if $50M is ambitious enough, the last one by Father Cooke was $90M and it topped out at $95M, as I recall).
