I can’t imagine he hasn’t learned all he can from Izzo. An opportunity to learn from another mind, let alone a long time NBA coach, could prove invaluable. Seems like a measured risk. Not like Fife won’t be able to get another job no matter what happens.
That and he's maybe considering, hey, I've been there for 10 years and no guarantee ... if I'm going to be just a top assistant forever here, why not. Better cost of living, it's his alma mater, and pay raise to boot. I couldn't speculate as to what it was, but I'm sure they didn't try to bait him on the cost of living thing, probably a substantial enough raise, plus the opportunity.Fife didn’t come for free - he drives the same luxury car and lives in the nicest of housing like all top assistants. He’s doing what he wants.
Why? He wasn’t in line to succeed Izzo. He played for Indiana so why not come back to help get this program back to blue blood status.
good post. but 2015 want's its lame ass word back.the woke.
Agree. If I never hear or see the word woke used in any fashion other than no longer asleep, it will be too soon. Same with snowflake.good post. but 2015 want's it's lame ass word back.
Stick with basketball, quit being a parrot of entertainment news and your uncle on fake-book, and most of all quit using that lame ass word. Maybe enjoy the moment without the tribal dog whistle.
Did you graduate from IU Bloomington?
I think that IZZO is going to hang it up in 1-2 seasons. Like football, I think MSU wants a clean slate. Which means outside coaching search & the staff will probably disperse anyway. Over the years, there have been reports of behaviors in the program that MSU wants to clean up.
Yeah, msu has kinda turned into the Louisville/baylor of the big ten with scandal after scandal for years now.There may be a few other reasons for Fife wanting to get our of MSU. First, MSU is urban compared to Bloomington. Much better facilities. 2nd, I got a feeling that Izzo is going to hang it up pretty soon, & MSU will go a different direction. Outside search. Which probably means all the staff would probably disperse anyways. 3rd, he could be a strong candidate in 6-8 years or has a much better chance of getting an offer to HC somewhere.
