Glad at least that Eitan is experiencing the thrill of playing in these special Games.

Important hire coming up for Coach C ... CBB: what do you think the timetable on this is?

The Cornell Basketball Blog said...

My hunch is Bill finds someone quickly. But we may not hear anything in public for a month.

Remember, this is the third chair (unpaid) role.

The top two assistants have been from day 1 and will continue to be Coach Sears and Coach Blaine.

What chair did Larranaga fill when he was here?

The Cornell Basketball Blog said...

Jay Larranaga was the 1st Chair. Marlon Sears was hired to be the 2nd Chair. And technically, for a few days, Kevin App was the 3rd Chair under Bill Courtney.

When Jay left, Marlon moved up a spot. Blaine moved up a spot. And Yahn was hired to replace App.
