Even when they're somewhat competitive, BC's gym is empty except for a select few opponents (Duke, NC, SU, Lville). I don't think they miss the Big East in the other sports, but it put a damper on basketball.
And any big time non-leaguer's not coming to Conte, too small; PC excluded.
BC program was fine until Coen and Cooley left in 2006, it's pretty obvious Skinner relied heavily on them and wasn't able to sustain the loss of both at the same time. That staff had been together for a long time and losing them along with switching conferences was too much for Skinner to overcome.
Lowell's HC Pat Duquette was on that staff till 2010.
Current Navy Prep, former Ohio U and Bryant head coach Tim O'Shea was on that staff through 2001.
Pretty good staff to have four D-1 head coaches on it as assistants.
