Is there anything out there regarding filling out the rest of the staff? 95% sure Thurman and Ruta is a done deal. However, those guys are fairly junior and I’m assuming he is looking for some heavy hitters with the other 2 spots.
All conjecture, assumptions and wild rumors welcome.
I believe there are only three assistant “Coaching” positions available, so if the two of them are hired (Ruta and Thurman) that only leaves one more spot besides the veritable “Basketball Operations” position that Matt Zimmerman previously held. CEM may bring on someone that used to be a head coach in that last position as you see coaches do that now all over.
Don’t forget, at Nevada, Musselman also created a position that was called something along the lines of Special Assistant to the Head Coach, that Rex Walters filled. He might decide to create a position like that here as well.
