2 XU assistant coaches leave program

Posted by Josh on Tuesday, May 1, 2012 Under: Recruiting/Roster Updates

Sorry I didn't post this earlier.  There was a lot of speculation that these 2 were leaving, but I waited until it was official. 

Rasheen Davis took a position with Manhattan.  He is from the NY area so you would think that he wanted to be closer to home.  Davis is a great recruiter and the main guy involved in landing the #5 overall 2013 player, Chris Thomas, in next year's class.  We've heard from Thomas' camp that he still intends to attend Xavier in the fall of 2013 but there's a lot of time between now and then so anything's possible.

Kareem Richardson took a job with Rick Pitino and Louisville. You can't really fault him for that as I'm sure a huge raise came with it and he'll be recruiting for a big-time program and Hall of Fame coach. If you look at Kareem's resume, you'll see that he never stays anywhere for too long so I'm not really shocked by this move for many reasons.

I don't really put a lot of stock into the thinking that something bad must be happening at XU with all the coaching and roster changes.  If Mack seemed more like a coach who was looking to move to another school in the near future, I could see his assistants wanting to stay and move up to Associate Coach or Head Coach.  But that's not the case.  The reality is, when the program is successful, other schools are going to notice and take interest in those that helped make that happen.  I'm looking forward to seeing who Coach Mack decides to hire in these two spots.

Go Muskies!
