    Graves left U of Evansville to accept a position with X. UE was on tour in Europe when he left

    WOW! Matthew has landed on his feet. He will build a resume and wind up a head coach again somewhere.

    He will be a good addition to X's staff, a lot of experience and winning pedigree regardless of what happened at South Alabama. Always liked him, too bad he wound up at X.

    Walter and UE are not happy from what I was told.

    Hopefully he can be a positive role model for a program that needs one

    Yeah. This irritates me to no end. I think Graves is precisely what LJ needs to balance his in game deficiencies.

    What are Graves strengths and why didn’t it work out when he was a HC? Just asking because I don’t know.

    I don’t believe for one second that Graves coming back would have been painted as a positive on this message board.

    Some guys just are not cut out to be head coaches. Their skills are better suited to be an assistant coaching the defense or setting up offensive sets. Just sayin.

    His strengths were game planning and in game matchups. His issues were recruiting which is tough when you’re at South Alabama with no connections in the area.

    Is this general knowledge?

    Graves told me several years ago at a Butler game in Chicago that he completely had to change the culture at South Alabama and that was two years into his stint.

    ".......balance his in game deficiencies." The elephant in the room.
