The Reinvention Of Greg McDermott: How Creighton’s coach remade his coaching philosophy

http://collegebasketball.nbcsports.com/ ... 77125317=1

Think this deserves its own thread. Very good article from Rob Dauster.

What wasn’t so obvious was whether or not that success could be sustained once McDermott ran out of All-American offspring.

Well, it has, to the point that he was the object of Ohio State’s affection in June, when they were looking to find a replacement for Thad Matta.

He passed.

McDermott may have reinvented who he is as a basketball coach, but he’s still the same midwest country boy he was growing up in Cascade, Iowa.

“I’m 53 years old,” he said. “I really like my life. I like pulling into my driveway at night when I get home and I like pulling into work in the morning. I like the people I work with. There was really nothing missing in my life.”

“I’ve never made decisions in my life based on money. I’ve made moves because I thought it was a good move professionally or for our family, and had I chose to leave, it strictly would have been more dollars involved. I don’t think that’s the right reason to make a decision.”

“I’m happy.”

Good read. It's been fun to watch the program evolve and grow. I'm glad Ras provides the needed tools and is the type of guy coaches like Altman and McDermott want to work for. CU has made large strides to get where they are and I think there are a few more strides coming.

Y’know, I appreciate the female form as much as the next guy and I hate political correctness but your avatar is out of place for this forum and in this political environment.

I've never said anything about it because I don't want to be that guy killing the 'fun', but it makes the whole forum randomly NSFW and I think it shouldn't be allowed. Just my opinion.

Am I the only one who views this thread on a cell and wonders what I'm missing out on in this avatar discussion?

Loved the article, by the way. Greg really has adapted to the way recruits want to play. Proud of him and our Jays.
