Agree on all points, except that I was initially excited about the prospects with Frieder, only later did I learn the lesson.

: He has passed away. He was intermin Head Coach in 1997-98. He took over when Frieder was let go before the season. He had 18 win season. His biggest victory was over #4 Stanford at Stanford. After Frieder he was a breath of fresh air. (As you can tell Frieder was the only ASU BB coach I have no use for) ASU wanted a big name coach (sound familiar?) so he was not retained. He will always have a special place in the heart of Sun Devil basketball fans for getting us back on the right track. He was an assistant coach later for San Antonio Spurs.
