Default Coaching National Teams Hurting USC Recruiting?

Dawn coaching national teams takes her away from USC for long periods of time. Is this hurting our recruiting? IMO she needs to be giving 100% of her time to USC. She has spent much time away from USC and has done so this year deep into the recruiting season. I think this hurts our recruiting.

Just listened to an interview of her after practice today. She said she missed the entire month of September with USA Basketball.

I remember when she first started this, I thought it would be huge in helping with her recruiting at USC. Now I'm not so sure that it hasn't possibly hurt it a little.

I think it would help her as much as hurt in recruiting. I don't think our facilities are up to snuff. They're decent, but not as good as many others.

Dawn’s been with USA basketball as a player or coach throughout her collegiate coaching career. Not a factor.

The gift and the curse with Dawn are that she's a straight shooter. She doesn't really make crazy promises to recruits. I'm ready for us to win our share of recruiting battles but I'd rather CDS swing for the fences than to settle to fill a spot.

Agreed. If anything, it further validates Dawn as a coach and improves the brand of South Carolina Women’s Basketball.

If you notice, anytime USA Basketball or anybody writes about Dawn Staley as the head coach of the WNT, they also mention that she’s the head coach at South Carolina. That kind of notoriety can’t be bought. The benefits will come eventually.

Default Re: Coaching National Teams Hurting USC Recruiting?

Not a problem. In fact, I’m glad she’s getting to coach alongside pro coaches like Reeve & Hughes as their perspective and insight, into the game might be something that will help Dawn down the road with our program.

As far as “closing the deal”, there is only so much you can do within the NCAA Recruiting Guidelines and Calendar. I’m certain every coach and staff, Dawn included, gives it their best effort and shows their program & University in a positive supportive light, but ultimately it is not a decision you can control. Do your best and move forward. Just keep our name in the hat and one day ......

Default Re: Coaching National Teams Hurting USC Recruiting?

It should definitely be a plus, not a negative. She needs a quality capable coaching staff who recruits well for her, and doesn't let the process lag while she is away coaching the national teams. Then when her national teams win gold medals, she can return and use it to boost the staff's efforts.

Pat and Luigi coached national teams for years while pulling in top classes. Dawn is just doing something wrong, but it isn't having all this success as a WBB head coach. It has to be something else, and really a 3rd grader should understand that....

Default Re: Coaching National Teams Hurting USC Recruiting?

I wouldn't think it hurts, but I'm not certain it's helping. We're in on a lot of highly regarded talent, but we don't seem to be able to close the deal on as many as we "should" or would like. That's been the case for a while now, though, even when Dawn wasn't coaching the national teams.

IMO, basketball in general (both programs) needs a lot more investment - facilities, recruiting, marketing, engagement. We're spending extravagantly on football, hoping for a payoff. We should be doing the same for basketball. Unless it's going to cost me more money, in which case forget anything I just said. :-)

To me, the obvious answer is investing in top notch facilities.

Coach K could go on permanent vacation and it would not hurt Duke's program. Most of us could recruit well for Duke. Do we have the great basketball history of Duke?
