Disagree. If it’s a good relationship. They make some sort of announcement thanking them for their contributions. And on the other end the coach says he appreciates his time at said school but is looking forward to this new challenge or opportunity.  Plus I know the chatter he was leaving started only 2 weeks before he left.  Isn’t lie he was there just for 2 years. He was along time coach there. It happens he found a better fit for him and the school was caught unaware.

We deal with dozens of coaching changes every year. I assure you, that almost never happens.

Hmmm - almost never happens may be a stretch.  I agree it's not like you are going to see something akin to what gets posted when a coach retires (althought Alma comes close), but it is not uncommon for their to be at least a press release with some level of thanks to the coach.  Given what teams and conferences I follow, I immediately looked at these 3 coaching departures this year; Alma, NCC, and North Park. While only Alma has a quote from the departing coach, they do all have thanks from the ADs.  Seems strange that RH has nothing that I can find even annoucing the coach has left.

Alma:  https://www.almascots.com/sports/mbkb/2021-22/releases/20220422nxzhgh
NCC:   https://northcentralcardinals.com/news/2022/3/23/coaching-change-announced-for-mens-basketball.aspx
North Park:   https://athletics.northpark.edu/news/2022/3/2/slyder-resigns-as-head-coach-of-npu-mens-basketball.aspx

But on the opposite side, there are so, so many that do not announce or even acknowledge a coach's departure.

I wonder what the correlation is between coaches who are fired vs those who voluntarily resign.
It seems logical that if a coach is fired, a somewhat acrimonious relationship would exist wherein the administration would be a lot less inclined to thank or even acknowledge the departing coach.
Conversely, a successful coach with a good relationship with his superiors would be far more likely to receive a “thank you for your service,” or, at minimum, some type of acknowledgment of his service/record.

In some cases, a voluntary resignation is just a coach firing a school.  I'm sure it all depends on the relationship.

A coach firing a school. Indeed! A perfect way to describe some recent coaching departures that I’m aware of.  8-)
So young hero, ask yourself……………………….Do you want to go to college, get a good education, and play (basketball)(football), or do you want to go to college, get a good education, and watch (basketball)(football)? 🤔 😏

Transylvania has their schedule up and they open with a road trip to the Chicago area with games against Elmhurst and Wheaton to start the season. They will probably add another game in the near future because they are short one game on the non-conference side of things. Great test for the Pioneers to start the season.

The Sales hire at RHIT will be announced very soon, I'm told. Lot's of interesting goings-on down there, I'm told. I'll share when I have more info - right now just rumors.

Any idea what in the world is happening in the athletic department at RHIT, Jester?
I’ve heard a rumble or two - nothing of any substance - but they lose their men’s BB coach and now I see that the assistant women’s coach (who’s been there over a decade) and is also the coach of the very successful women’s golf team, his bio is no longer on the website. Did he leave as well or is it just routine site maintenance and I’m just seeing things LoL?
