Posted by alblack56 on 5/11/2013 5:36:00 AM (view original):i always wondered, how do you know you prefer d2/d3, without ever coaching a d1 team?
I've been playing since 2004 and have never had a D1 team. I prefer D2 and D3
My coaching idols have always been those coaches, like 'Big House' Gaines of Winston-Salem, who spend 30+ years at the same small school. I decided from the beginning that I wouldn't take a D1 job.
Later, after I learned more about D1, I was even more sure. I don't like the recruiting 'tiers' and the disadvantages to the mid-major schools. So, I'm perfectly content staying at DIIand DIII
