    Supposedly in consideration is a very recent head coach at top 25 D1 program and former head coach of the US Women’s Olympic team.

    Well I’m guessing early next week, not sure about the D1 Coach, Is it really a person for the long-haul are they using the job as a steppingstone.

    In this case, no. More like a coming-back-to-Texas, end-of-career move.

    From Mick Haley to a woman who has never been a college head coach before. Quite the drop-off.

    Good point. If only Colby had been a head coach before Commerce then maybe we would have a national championsh... wait, nevermind.

    Ya who wouldn't want a 75 year old in the twilight of their career coaching their women's D2 college volleyball team and who sued his former school? Come on... Recruiting is tough enough as it is.

    Potts will succeed well. She is deeply connected in the Texas club volleyball circuit which will dramatically improve recruiting. She is a proven winner, and has coached D1 College volleyball. Not head, but lets not be unrealistic here. Im excited about the hire.

    This is another very good hire by our AD.
    Don't know how long it will take to "right-the-ship," however, this is a big step in the right direction.

    If you look at the roster, 5 players (and their parents) have been removed from the roster. I believe Potts will be able to re-establish WT as a top choice for the top local players. The Panhandle is one of the most fertile VB recruiting grounds in Texas. The previous coach had poisoned the waters around here. Kids didn't want to play for him. He didn't recruit them. If Potts can get 2 or 3 of the top local talents every year, WT will be competing nationally again. I bet she'll go out and bag few D1 transfers and some juices for next year and sign 6 or 7 new freshmen.

    I bet our AD made another great hire.

    Curious.......What makes you say that?

    (I am not a VB guy....even though my DIL played college VB. Shame on me).
