    - Old news, but Steve Masiello kept Scott Padgett at Manhattan and hired former Morehead State, Murray State and Louisville assistant Matt Grady.

    I am hearing Keatts won't be announced on Tuesday. Will announce RIchard and Jones. Jones use to work with Nike travelling team.

    Yeah, I think Jones is a solid pickup. I should've added that they are expected to announce Richard P. as well. I'm not sure about Keatts.

    What was the deal with little Rich anyway? Did they just get him out of town while the whole Sypher case was going on or something? Or did Donovan not really want him on the staff to begin with? Seems odd he would leave for a year and then come back, especially considering what was going on around Pitino and the Louisville program around the time Richard left to now at a time where everything has really died back down and got back to business as usual.

    I think the Sypher thing played a role. But at the same time I think Richard picked up some experience that he wouldn't have gotten under his dad. Had a chance to learn under a different style.

    Rick had to have him back. This is the first time Rick hasn't had anyone on his style that understood his system. He needed Richard because he understands what Rick is trying to do. Richard will be the main assistant so it will prep him for a head coaching job in a couple of years.

    I think Richard will be a good head coach one day. He is making a name for himself on the recruiting trail. He was key in recruiting Teague. He left and Teague ends up at UK. So Richard will be an asset to the program.

    Sounds like another god pick up. A connection to the world of AAU.
