Per Ben Steele

 Ben Steele @BenSteeleMJS
Marquette is hiring Justin Gainey as an assistant coach. He was director of basketball operations for #mubb from 2014-17. Gainey was at Arizona the last two seasons.

1000% untrue...But thanks for using hyperbole. This just feels "lazy" go with someone known, instead of potentially finding the biggest fish you possibly can. Maybe he kills it, and I hope he does, but someone more experienced with deep National recruiting ties was my preference. This is like a bunt single hire

A thread with great insight has been on BrewCity Ball for those interested along with details of who they pursued.

Who would you have preferred? Name some names.

Interesting side note ... Gainey was the lead recruiter at Santa Clara for highly sought transfer Trey Wertz.

I'm aware Fluffy...but I'd be willing to bet thousands of $$$ they didn't look at some of the top assistants in the country. Wanna take that bet?? As far as I know, they looked into one other guy, after that fell through they did the easy thing and hired Gainey. It's really that simple...to think it wasn't, is being naïve.

No actually you are being simple.  I am sure Wojo had a number of inquires from others.  How far he took some of those inquires, who knows?  And you don't either.

So your little bet really can't be provded anyway.

Just another thing for you to bitch about.

But the one guy is a top assistant, so.

Guru. Since you are the basketball genius on this board. Please tell me Gainey's salary at MU and how it compares to the "top assistants" you wish we've gone after. And tell me how you know any of them would have even come. You know the answers so please share.

Justin is an excellent hire. Knows the program which is a plus.  He is a well respected assistant  who has gone back to work again for coaches where he had prior relationships three times now. That demonstrates that Head Coaches like what Justin brings to the table.

Is it normal to have two associate heavy coaches? (Killings being the other)

It's fine.  It's just a title.  Both report to Wojo.

He recruited for high level kids at Arizona, he now has experience.  Not a bad hire, lets see what he can do!

Guru, it is in your best interest for a litany of reasons to come to the realization that Marquette is never going to be a top 5 program.

Agreed, Top 30 program yes, Top 5, do not see it unless Al walks through the door again, those days are over.  Wojo is not Al, Buzz was the closest, and Crean was
fortunate to get Wade and 3 kids from Wisconsin that were pretty darn good.

Marquette is a great program..  Definitely top 25-30 type when you consider all program factors.  It will never be a blue blood, and that is fine.  Doesn't mean it can't be a really, really good program.  Its been just that since the move to the Big East.  But people like guru have standards that simply aren't realistic when your school is located in Milwaukee.
