There are supposedly reputable rumors on Utefans.net today saying that Chris Hill has made his decision on a new hire and an announcement will be coming shortly. This has me a tiny bit worried.
If Larry Krystkowiak is the guy I'll be ecstatic. He was my choice a long time ago when we were only speculating whether or not Giac would be back. I fell in love with Larry K after watching his Montana team last year. I think he would be fantastic. He is a fiery and no nonsense type coach. He's a guy that I think could have us back in the tournament next year.
Jim Christian from Kent St. on the other hand does not excite me much. It sounds like a mild step up from Giacoletti to me. If he is our guy I would much rather have Hill take his time to make a decision to see who else might be available after the tournament unfolds a bit. I don't think there should be any rush to make Jim Christian the new coach.
