Took Robbins five days to get his head out of his ass and pull the trigger.

Comes from a good program. Seems to be the right age. Like that he can recruit euro. Hope he puts together a good staff that can recruit the hell outta SoCal.

I suspect you'll keep Simpson too.

It seems like a good hire. Maybe contract negotiations prolonged the process.

I like this hire a lot more than some U of A former player who’s got no business coaching at this level yet.

He gone... Kriisa entered the portal but there’s a solid chance he’s back. The big one is Akinjo who I don’t love as a player but he’s a legit PG.

Idk what Lloyd’s staff will be but it sounds like it won’t include Terry. Maybe he takes another Gonzaga guy but they’ll be in on a bunch of transfers.

Yeah unfortunately akinjo was exactly what he was for Arizona that he was for the Hoyas. A disappointment.

I’d think he would want some connection to Arizona history on his staff, but maybe that’s creating a successor over the shoulder scenario that’s best avoided for a new coach unconnected to the program.

I read UA tried to get cute and got played by Musselman who leveraged an extension to stay at ARK which is what he wanted all along.

UA is lucky Lloyd didn't just tell them to f off and withdraw his name.

I assume he won't be able to bring Brian Michaelson who is a hot HC candidate himself.

I think Lloyd was the right choice all along. Arizona ended up getting the best candidate.

I agree but they could have very easily have lost him had they continued playing games. He was obviously the best candidate from get go (Musselman wasn't leaving ARK) waiting this long was a mistake, luckily it seems Lloyd really wanted this job.

Yeah. Once I heard Tommy Lloyd was available I kept asking why are they waiting. Not getting Musselman is likely a blessing in disguise.

Robbins and Heeke may have cost us at least three of our players from the roster with their stunt.
