Mahalich is the Favorite to Replace Dr. G…

La Salle University has been playing Varsity Men’s Basketball since 1931. Over the course of those 87 years, La Salle has had 18 Men’s Basketball Coaches.

100% have been white males!

La Salle University Athletic Director, Bill Bradshaw has had a long career heading up Athletic Departments at La Salle, DePaul, Temple and back to La Salle again. Over the course of his career, Bradshaw has headed numerous search committees. Under his leadership, these institutions have hired Speedy Morris, Pat Kennedy and Fran Dunphy to be Head Basketball Coaches. He has also headed a few football searches that yielded Al Golden, Steve Addazio and Matt Rhule. Bradshaw-led searches results have a common element:

100% have been white males!

Seems like 2 man race heading down the stretch at 20th and Olney…

Hofstra Head Coach, Joe Mahalich and Villanova Assistant Coach Ashley Howard are repeatedly mentioned as the “favorites” to take the helm at La Salle.

Only one is a white male…

A lot of people… I mean a LOT of folk that I respect keep telling me that race is a non-factor, that it truly doesn’t figure into hiring decisions these days…

I get a familiar feeling when I hear or read such comments… When I was about 7 years old I found a gang of toys in my garage… Everything I asked for on my Christmas list was there… But it was about 2 weeks before Christmas… I mean my minibike was there… So was my Tyco Racetrack… My Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots… My Electric football game… Everything…

Then on Christmas Eve my Mom made me go to bed early so Santa could bring ALL of presents to my house… She was serious…

I really respected my Mom… Of course she wouldn’t lie to me… Would she?

A familiar feeling indeed…

We’ll see what happens… Of course, I’m prepared to hear that “Head Coaching experience” was the deciding factor… That may very well outweigh 2 Final Fours in 36 months and 1, shit maybe 2, National Championships over the same period…

The Black Cager stands ready to appeal the call…
