I'm OK with it as long as this is about as far as it goes. And the same would apply to HC coaches.
However any references to it, especially with respect to job performance, would be walking a VERY thin line between appropriate and deletion, in my view, and I would tend to lean toward deletion. Think about Rick Pitino's "situation" a few years back. Certainly was worthy of discusson as we related it to CRW's departure. However, some of what was posted about Pitino at that time and since on the old board was over the line.
Also, will lock this thread from further posts so as to keep it from going over the edge and me constantly monitoring it.
And finally for reference, there is a clear source for the information and so Board Rule 7 comes to mind on why I think this is OK vs. deleting.
7. This is not a rumor board. While speculation is a fact of life on message boards, there is a fine line not to cross. Issues of academic standing, intra-team issues, or personal information unsuitable in a public forum concerning recruits, student-athletes, coaches, or staff are unwelcome and may be pulled without warning.
General Rule of thumb, if you can’t or don’t want to post how you came into the knowledge, even in a general way, and/or sign your real name to the post, you probably should not post it. Posting here is not the same as telling the person sitting next to you in the stands what you “know”/heard.
In the end, if you are unsure and have a question, ask offline first.
