    Manhattan kicking it off early this year.

    I know its been mentioned in other threads, but it's also, apparently, time to get this season's coaching changes thread underway.

    Firing Masiello now is just strange.

    Yes, the timing does seem strange. But just speculating here. . . . there is probably more to the story than meets the eye.

    So the digging into it says the new AD and the coach never got a long and don't like each other. They just extended the new AD's contract, the coach's contract ends after this year, they are picked 2nd and have the conference player of the year, they had a meeting and then he had a meeting with the president, guessing that didn't go well, he was then let go by the AD...just a horrible decision thinking this wouldn't backfire as they might not be able to field a scholarship team now...She thought the players and fans would be on her side and not the well respected beloved coach...shockingly bad read on the room, no team, no fans, the school has a disaster on their hands...

    “We thank Coach Masiello for his service and wish him well,” Manhattan athletic director Marianne Reilly said in a statement. “As we look to building successful teams for the future — and with recruiting season beginning soon and Coach Masiello’s contract ending in April 2023 — we determined that it was the right time to begin rebuilding from the top down.”

    Maybe the AD thought she was firing the Tennis Coach?

    If this is really about the interpersonal relationship between Masiello and the AD, it's truly bizarre. You suck it up and deal with it for 5 more months, unless he crossed some line that no employee can.

    Hartford is open a day before their season is set to start. John Gallagher resigned in protest after the school refused to send a trainer to a closed scrimmage with Dartmouth and one of his players got hurt.

    This is Hartford's last season in DI. They announced the move back to DIII last year after Gallagher got them to their first DI tourney.
