I'm curious about the assistant coaches at St John's, have they been on staff for a while?
Are they well regarded?
Defensive Coordinator - Jerry Haugen, 37th season, well-regarded and well liked by players. Also head baseball coach.
Offensive Coordinator - Jimmy Gagliardi, 21st season, I don't know a whole lot of people that care for Jimmy.
Defensive Coach/Recruiting Coordinator - Gary Fasching, 17th season, well-regarded and well liked by players.
Offensive Coach - Brandon Novak, 12th season, well-regarded and well liked by players. Also head wrestling coach.
Offensive Coach - Jim Mader, 9th season, came on staff after my time, but was highly regarded as a HS coach.
Defensive Coach - Damien Dumonceaux, 7th season, a friend of mine that I don't know as a coach. Hired full-time in 2012.
There's a handful of other "minor" coaches that I know nothing about.
