Sonny took us beyond what any FB coach before or since could even dream of.


Fair to say though, that he inherited the fruits of Earl's success. Probably the best jumpstart of any FB coach we've had, with Mac being a close second (at least where talent is concerned). Sonny built on what he inherited, Mac bailed so we'll never know.

Can't have this discussion without recognizing what Hilbert has done, over and over and over again. Jim Williams and Boyd Grant both put us on the map for a while. Miles left LE a tourney team. Larry took advantage of it. However, neither can be considered as one of the top coaches since Miles didn't finish, and LE didn't build on it.

You definitely have to include Bedard. He's made the skinny people in The Fort relevant for a long time now.

I'm not going to make a list or rank them other than putting Sonny and Hilbert 1A and 1B. Just gonna' ask where this kind of institutional support was when we had the coaches that earned it.

Hang in there folks. It's a painful transition from no support with great results, through lot's of support with disappointing results, to finally lot's of support with great results. It does appear we're on the right track despite recent performance in the major sports.
