I hope. If Willie B is named coach, this has been in the works for some time. I wonder how broad the search reached, what were the considerations, and how this will play out. I am happy Tracy is gone and if Willie, I think he has a very good chance at being successful.
I am guessing the past few days included conversations with current assistant coaches and I would have to think an announcement will be made about the rest of the coaching staff tomorrow as well.
Several players sound loyal to the current assistant coaches and have said they would consider leaving if they are not retained. None that I have heard of said they were leaving because Tracy is gone. ;)
If any players leave because a coach is not retained then I will wish them well but they will not be missed. ASU and the program above self, something Tracy knew nothing about. None of the current players understand what it's like to be on a winning team at the D1 level. The new coach has a giant hill to climb, not only will they need to instill a more disciplined approach to game but they will need to change the mindset of the team.
Looking forward to the announcement.
Go Sun Devils!
