    Edit. I think the best thing to happen to Dabo was Clemson firing Bowden during the season. It gave him a chance to perform as interim HC because you can't fire the entire staff with the HC during the season and he did well enough to get the gig. When the HC is fired after the season ends usually the entire staff goes out the door with him. Poindexter might be playing his cards with this scenario in mind.


    I'll buy that. Poindexter has the same history and ties to UVa that Torian Grey and Cornell Brown do to Tech. It is entirely possible that he will someday be back at UVa. UConn coach Bob Diaco and Poindexter were both at UVa on Al Groh's staff. I only question taking a job in the American Athletic Conference which will lose Rutgers and Louisville next season, unless of course UConn is vying for another shot at ACC membership.

    I can't believe I failed to see the real reason -- he was tired of standing on the wall like he was Poindexter.

    Forget BTTS It's now PBAM. Poindexter busts a move.

    But it's also a promotion he's going from a position coach to a coordinator. And odds are unless he's a complete disaster he won't get fired after 1 year like London's staff will after next season

    Poindexter may not be gone very long. Could be back at UVA in 2015.
