None of those schools have the same recruiting challenges as VT


And all started at their current schools before they were 55...meaning theyve earned the right to stay as long as theyd like

In the case of Boeheim, he is most definitely holding the Syracuse program back by sticking around...the others arent that far behind

For reference...Frank Beamer is 73 RIGHT NOW, he was (get this) 68 when he retired...and even he was seen as staying past his prime from a recruting standpoint

It is very difficult to do in a place like VT

Could Mike Young stay well into his 70s at VT? Sure

Would it be the best avenue for the program's long term health? Absolutely not
