So NOW Reveno's last scholarship player has left the program. Sorry to see him go. Will the new assistant also be a big-man specialist?

I probably could have been more clear in my report of Kramer leaving....it's a family related leave of absence for the 2018-19 season.  The current expectation is he'll return for next season, but of course anything can change between now and then.

Someone has been selected as an "interim" assistant, and is going through all the HR vetting now....I have no idea who it is (but I did make a recommendation  tongue ).

Sorry, I'm too busy. I'll have to yell my suggestions from my seat.

Best wishes for whatever situation the Knutsons are dealing with.

I'm glad to hear that Coach Knutson is still in the fold, AND that UP and Coach Porter are the kind of employer and boss that make it possible for staff members to take extended leave to prioritize family and personal matters.

Was this your recommendation, DD?

Geving scooped up a few former-Pilots on the transfer market, and now UP has scooped him up, at least for this season.

Pretty sure Tyler was teaching a university level business law course and was looking for a way to get back into coaching after his dismissal at PSU.

The unknown was if his PSU contract had ended, and apparently he had signed a three-year extension in 2015 that ran through the 2018 season.

I'm really excited about his addition...he's a very good experienced coach and an even nicer guy.  I think his head coaching record at PSU is better than any UP coach has had....at least in my memory.  tongue

Hmm, I didn't think it would be a name I'd actually heard of before. Figured they'd bring in a younger guy looking for a start and hope for a good fit there, but this is a pleasant surprise.

Seems like a good hire! I remember Coach Reveno having positive things to say about him over the years.

Spending quality time at home with his wife and new-born daughter, Kramer tells me he will NOT be returning to coach at UP....and if does return to coaching, it's unlikely it will be at the college level due to the time it takes him away from his family.

While playing professionally in England Kramer met and married the love of his life, and his priorities are in order.

An excellent player and coach, and a helluva great guy in every way, Kramer will certainly be missed by the players and all who know him around the UP campus.

From Novemeber 7, 2017:
DoubleDipper wrote:But the Georgia Tech program is also in some turmoil due to the self-reporting of impermissible benefits that resulted in the indefinite suspension of 2 players, but now we're hearing that Ron Bell, a longtime friend of Tech coach Josh Pastner, is alleging the program wasn’t fully truthful with what it reported to the NCAA....that there's actually more to the story.

Hmm, do you suppose Rev could end up as the (interim) head coach of the Ramblin' Wreck?
And now, even after the self-reporting by Georgia Tech, the NCAA is apparently coming down hard with a Level 1 violation...and the GT booster, Bell, is still a big part of it.

This may not affect Rev directly, but it certainly have some indirect consequences...

There’s a nationwide corruption scandal ongoing and the NCAA hits P5 minnow Georgia Tech with a Level 1 violation over a $300 strip club visit and two flights to Arizona.

I do not see this as a strong voice who will challenge the head coach.

A different opinion, from the voice of the Pilots:

Well deserved. This guy sleeps less than I do. Looking forward to another season with you. You get the first postgame interview.

IMO, this is a good hire for a number of reasons, but primarily because,

A. It continues to make the (assistant) DOBO position desirable for the future and it's a positive move to hire someone from within the program who has earned the trust of the players and staff;

B. Chris has proven he's clearly driven to make the team better through his hard work and long hours on the recruiting trail this past couple of months as he tracked down grad-transfers and JUCO players.  He may not have the experience or contacts of Coach Cantu, but he's hungry to succeed and does have experience evaluating prospects.

C. He will reportedly be instrumental in the development of the players...a much needed quality on this staff going forward.

Hey guys, I have been a reader of the forum for years but I just recently decided to make an account!
I really like the Buchanan hire especially when looking at all of the endorsements he has received from many of his peers on Twitter. Additionally, I think he is exactly the young, hungry type of coach that the pilots should be looking to bring in.
