It is job changes time in Allen. The California Collegiate Athletic Association has 3 openings and we are hoping to get those filled. We have a very good core of coaches and have been a strong 2nd to the Gulf South in D2 Allen recently. The 3 openings are Grand Canyon (which is in pretty good shape to win right away), Sonoma St. and Cal. Poly Pomona, both of which are rebuild opportunities. With a mountain of postseason cash to go around, rebuilding in the CCAA can be done fairly quickly by a good coach.
Grand Canyon has B- prestige and runs a Motion offense and M2M defense. The team returns 10 players from a 16-13 NT team, including a very good PG and 2 good post scoring options.
Sonoma St. has a C- prestige and runs a fastbreak/FCP combo currently. The team graduates 8 SRs, so this one is in a good spot for a rebuild (including an immediate change of offense an defense if the new coach so desires). When I took over CSU Chico 4 seasons ago I had 10 openings and this season we made the Elite 8, so a fairly quick turnaround can be achieved.
Cal. Poly Pomona has a C- prestige and runs a Motion/FCP combo currently. The team graduates 5 SRs.
