I want to say this right now: I think Tony Delk was a good hire for the Aggie basketball team. He was a fine college player and had a solid career in the NBA. It helps having a guy with NBA pedigree on a college basketball bench.
Is it concerning the Aggies lost two assistants this offseason? I think so. Assistants move on in the college game, but the Aggies have had too much turnover and not enough consistency during the last four years. Their leading scorers don't come back. Two assistants leave this offseason. I think the team will miss Mick Durham, who's shining moment was leading the team to a comeback victory at UTEP two years ago when Marvin Menzies was thrown out of the game in the first half.
And what do the Aggies really need on the bench? First off, they need a tough coach who's hard on the players and garners their respect. Good coaching staffs have a good cop and a bad cop and I don't think the Aggies have had a bad cop on their bench. They also need a coach who has technical expertise when it comes down to X's and O's. Perhaps Delk can bring one of these traits to the table.
