    The timing of this seems odd, right before the season starts. But I guess it makes sense with family and Covid concerns.

    Looks like Vergollo will step into an assistant role on an interim basis for this season.

    I wonder who they'd realistically have replace him after this season? Do they bring Veasley back? Rose isn't ready and I don't think there is a chance Nored wants it. I'd like someone in house but who knows.

    I actually think it would be best to go outside the program for another assistant.

    100%. Mix it up. It's ok to keep some family around but it's the right move to find and hire the best talent available. Going to Butler shouldn't be a pre-req.

    What is it with us and getting stuck with stuff like this when there is very little time to react?

    Unless LaVall has a line on something, the timing could gave been better!

    With this development BU would only have an opening for DOBO possibly next year anyway if Will has been promoted. Not exactly a crisis.

    Just my guess, but Vergollo was an assistant on LJ's staff at Milwaukee. He'll get the AC job full time after the season and somebody young will get groomed for the DOBO job.

    A grad assistant would be another plausible option.

    Agreed, the most senior AC now is Kampen in his 5th year so that takes care of the hometown hire.

    BU is on a hiring freeze, so moving Will up for year makes sense. Also suspect Omar could get stolen from us before long, so could see 2 spots open for next year.

    Omar has really grown on me and I love him on this staff. I hope he doesn't get nabbed but I think he'll get a HC gig sooner than later.

    Kampen has also proven to be a pretty good recruiter.

    COVID is a mild inconvenience for Butler in relation to the catastrophic effect it has on the football schools at a level that would be a concern for interesting OL. It’s going to be YEARS before you see coaches get a pay day, if ever. I think there’s a real chance all of this was a hard reset on athletic department spending. (IE the days of Butler’s coach churn are over)

    As for Butler, for optics, they can’t really proceed permanently with a staff like that. I’d expect them to hire someone of JM’s ilk with the completion of the season (someone that is vaguely nationally known, perhaps older)

    He was still on the practice floor just two days ago. Hopefully nothing serious health wise.
