Wonder how many people had applied for this job.
Probably wasn’t an “open” position and only ones eligible were the Master’s inner circle KAs.
A safe pick that could pay dividends if Coach Baxter decides to be a relentless recruiter and really goes after the sports best recruits. Yes, the cards are stacked but someone on the staff has to have the moxie to try. The elite programs sign 2-4 top 50 players every year, why can’t NaWahine sign 1 a year?
They usually do get 1-2 Top 50 players a year.
Yes in some years but not every year. This year’s class has one player in the the top 100, in the nineties. The significant word is every year. After three years when recruits are juniors the elites have 8-12 top 50 players, do the math on NaWahine.
Not many elite players have an interest in coming here to serve the Master.
As a long time Nā Wahine supporter, since 1981, I was hoping for a woman. Women Sports need more female Coaches!
Ideally yes, but female coaches are tied to their husband’s careers and that’s why Robin Ah-Mow-Santos had to leave when her husband was deployed elsewhere. Also, it’s harder for women with small children to travel so much, especially here in Hawaii where every road trip is at least 2,500 miles away and none across the city.
I agree with Honu and was hoping the same but you also have a point about women coaches unless they are single or have no children.
She left because she couldn’t stand the KA stench surrounding the Master. As soon as she left, that KA Hall threw her under the bus.
Totally irrelevant considering the huge question surrounding the Master’s status. This is a placeholder move, taking care of his “inner circle KAs” until a decision is made. Good riddance to Darth Vader” lookalike Berg who was here ONLY as a favor to Master’s “inner circle” ‘friend, much like the other old volunteer guy (good riddance to him too). As the program spins out of control and the clear succession plan is nowhere to be seen, all the fans get is another example of the good old boy’s network mentality. Pleas Master, get well and ride off into the blazing sunset and enjoy a long retirement. Be magnanimous and turn over the program to the next generation, much like how your friend at Stanford did it right.
