Interesting to hear that Coach Cunningham's retirement at Trinity was 'not his choice.'  Thanks for having him on the show last night, Dave.

Always happy to have him on. I wasn't sure if he would indicate the choice ... but he did without hesitation. I wondered how many would pick up on that.

Trinity brings Jimmy Smith back to the SCAC after three years at Millsaps.  Four years at Schreiner and TLU (SCAC champs both years at TLU) and a four-year career at UMHB means he knows the territory.  Promises an up-tempo game which should be exciting for the guys after the deliberate style favored by Coach C.

If he stays around ... Jimmy is known to jump ship often and after just a few years. I have liked Jimmy, but his jumping from programs quickly has always had me shake my head.

Also ... not sure why, but his alma mater's job was open. I will be interested to hear why he didn't end up there.

Very true, Dave.  My hope is that, if he does leave in 2-3 years, that he gets the program back on the right track so that it will be more appealing to the next coach.  His history does show that programs do show good improvement during each of his short stays.

With re UMHB, that position didn't open until nearly 3 weeks after Trinity (officially, anyway) and it may have been take the bird in the hand vs the one in the bush.

This would definitely be an offseason for taking the bird in the hand.

Millsaps rising soph G Kaleb Jenkins is apparently following Coach Smith to Trinity per his tweet (RT'd by TUMBB):

https://twitter.com/5_KJ_5/status/1259607528238964736

As a first-year the 5'9" Jenkins averaged 11.5 points, 4.8 boards, and 3.5 assists in 25 minutes per game this season.

Boy, that makes it tough to recruit.   And trying to find someone to replace Coach Partee with everything that's going on - good luck (with all sincerity).

Trinity has hired Sterling Holmes to assist Jimmy Smith.  Holmes was a volunteer assistant for TU last season and played for Smith at TLU.  He was a player development intern for the Dallas Mavericks in the 2018-19 season and an assistant at TLU the year before that; SCAC PoTY and NABC second-team A-A as a junior in 2015-16.

Edit:  Ross Burt and the other assistants on last year’s team have apparently been let go, as Smith and Holmes are the only coaches shown on the TU web site.

Unfortunately, back to nine immediately. JWU is shutting down its athletics programs.
