Maybe, are there a lot of strip joints in New Rochelle? Sorry but this is more of the same for Iona, questionable academic stats, questionable players and now a questionable coach. One has to wonder who is the alumnus who is pulling the strings in New Rochelle. No I didn’t mean G strings.

College basketball is turning into a bigger disgrace every year. This guy should be banned for life and a private Catholic college should show some values.

The University of Louisville, a public institution in order to improve its image replaces Pitino and hires a coach from a Catholic university (Xavier) . Iona, a Catholic institution hires him two or three years later. This has nothing to do with repentance or forgiveness or a second chance this is all about trying to win at any cost. They are an embarrassment to Catholic education at a time when the Church doesn’t need any more negative publicity.

Alumni must be paying around half his number because there is no academic/ economic breakeven analysis herein that makes any sense.
