Although Larannaga never coached a game in Newman Arena, right?

No, he left before the season, but gets credit for recruiting and bringing in a couple of the current juniors.

any truth to the rumors about Ryan Wittman joining Donahue's staff as a grad assistant??

The Cornell Basketball Blog said...

Following up on it. But can say he has been asked many times before. In other words, all he had to do was ask and he would get a gig at Cornell, Army or B.C.

The Cornell Basketball Blog said...

Now confirmed. Answer is YES.

About time. What a waste of basketball talent for him to just sit behind a desk.

Just watched the Wittman video. Wow, do I miss the fluid offense from those Cornell teams and Wittman's unbelievable shooting range.

Glad to hear about Ryan. Maybe, could to lead to a position at C'nell one day.

Every time I see Jeremy Lin on television and then think about Ryan Wittman sitting in a cubicle somewhere in Minneapolis, I shed a tear.
