What he had done elsewhere is impressive. He diced up dOSU at Maryland and is innovative and effective. If he stays 2-3 years before moving on so be it. Helps teach Lou and groom him to move up at that time. Rees may be interesting giving his work with Ian Book but that might be a harder move to swallow for Ayeni who has to be waiting in the wings. I say u go with the established mentor who can teach and lift and then have the waiting prince move into the role seamlessly. Of course this all assumes Mike Kafka isn’t a possibility. I’d be happy to bring him in for a few seasons before he moves on to a bigger role in the league. And Lou can slide up again.
