This decision to have him just hang around another year and a half could have been made and done months ago - long before the end of the NCAA season. What's another few extra months of pay for Doug in his new role with Judy? Then we fire Heath at the end of the tournament. Was that a kneejerk reaction born of the late, mis-timed AD hiring? Judy doing the dirty work for Harlan? I don't know. But ending the season on an ugly skid afforded many opportunities if we had a plan and goal in sight to relieve Heath and be active in the hiring process/search firm stuff earlier. We could have let an assistant finish that mess and been out on the road finding the new HC, but we were still busy with the Doug problem and finding an AD. Is this all spur of the moment stuff from our University? Any strategic thought employed? Why the timing on Doug's departure? Not competent enough to find the next MBB coach? If he was fired, then fire him EARLIER. If he is still going to get paid, why change ADs so late and during such a crucial time? The soft touch and dealing with issues late created the problems we have right now. It seems pretty clear to me the Heath decision was a late decision. That kind of late thinking, late action has put us in this position. The timing on Doug's announcement started this mess. It could have been done in a less important window, especially if it had even been contemplated that Heath was not working out. From the outside, it does look like a mess.
