while i like your thinking it is also nice to have that kind of cheerleader for the billikens out and about in the aau and high school ranks nudging kids to us.  

This is why it is just as important for SLU to develop future basketball coaches as it is for SLU to develop future professional players.  There are a lot of 1990s guys who are now coaching (Frazier, Justin Tatum, Claggett, Jamal Walker, etc.).  Hopefully some of the more recent guys get into coaching as well and continue that pipeline.

And while they don’t coach both Bonner and Hughes are very supportive of the program and involved in the local basketball scene. Bonner stepping in last year to help out was awesome. It also told everyone that Ford has circled the wagons and Team Blue is real.

I have to agree with Roy.  Corey seems the type that probably does well with younger guys.  I wouldn't necessarily want him working with adults.  I haven't talked to him in almost 20 years, hopefully he has matured a lot in those years (most of us have).  My last interaction with him was in a pick up game at the Rec Center where he went full Bad Boys Dennis Rodman on Dave Ferguson and I for simply whipping his team's ass.  Again, in a pick up game.  The incident ended with us walking off the floor after about his 5th brutal forearm shiver.  He was clearly looking for a fight because of a game with absolutely no stakes whatsoever.

Yes. I am not aware of anyone in the community like this when Grawer and Spoon were on our sidelines.  Huge difference.
