Maybe Florida Atlantic couldn't do better than Mike Jarvis.

Maybe FAU couldn't do better than a coach who ran St. John's so far underground, the sinkhole will eventually swallow the guy who replaced Jarvis, Norm Roberts.

Maybe FAU couldn't do better than a coach who was accused by one of his own players at St. John's, Abe Keita, of helping supply him with $300 a month for three years. The NCAA looked into that, but Jarvis and others refused to fully cooperate, and the NCAA was never able to make that charge stick to him. But still.

Maybe FAU couldn't do better than hire an insincere Northeast snob who hasn't coached in three years.

Maybe FAU really couldn't do better than Mike Jarvis.

How sad for FAU.

dead on, doyel!

it is a sad day for FAU... sad, sad day... the FAU administration really dropped the ball on this hiring and showed NO accountability or integrity in this hiring

this is why our football program became the fastest ever to reach and win a bowl game and our baseball program has been to eight regional appearances and a super regional appearance.... WHILE basketball is left in the toilet and has had ZERO success... we hire LOSERS to run our basketball program

Your really think this is that bad of a hire? I agree what he didn to St. Johns is sick and that program will take another 4 years to even get back to playing big East tourney ball but He is an experienced coach going to a program that needs some experience and its putting FAU on the map a little bit. If they hired some new no name coach would we even be talking about this? Maybe some of the recruits will see this and come calling and then who knows?
