Points taken, but IIRC the program was in dire straights at the end of the Hewitt debacle. Fan interest was tepid at best, recruiting was less than stellar, and the outgoing coach was sitting on a payday that directly effected everything related to the program that we're still trying to recover from the a$$ screwing that the brainless one signed off on and Hewitt accepted as he gave the unequivocal middle finger to GT. GT didn't have the resources, a real home court, and did not want to spend anything more that would have put the program further into the red. Options were limited and Gregory was available. As you stated, he didn't put us on probation nor did he leave the cupboard completely empty when he was replaced. He did the best job he possibly could with the resources he had to work with. He eventually increased interest in GT basketball again with an NIT bid and couple of wins to boot, but he was in over his head without being able to recruit in the best college basketball conference in the country. I hope to heck that CJP is able to bring the thriller back to McCamish like it used to be in the hey day of GT basketball.
