Just when you thought that USF was going to turn around their basketball program we learn that Mesiello lied on his resume and has been dropped by USF.

With as much money as schools pay just to verify the guy they're going to pay a lot of money to you'd think coaches lying on their resumes would be a thing of the past.

Given it has zero bearing on how they coach, one would think these schools would give a slap on the wrist and move on. Notre Dame would've been so much better off keeping George O'Leary when his resume flap happened it's not even funny. Same thing here. USF may live to regret not pulling the trigger on this hire, because someone else will definitely hire the guy.

Was thinking the same thing. But then on the other hand one who lies should never be rewarded as this just sends the wrong message.

If it has zero bearing on how you coach, then why even bother lying about it?

I hate the USF athletic department and Judy Genshaft so much. I'm actually 50/50 on the decision not to hire him, since he did lie on his resume, but having an agreement in place before a thorough background check is completed? Just another black eye on a poorly managed school.

They better end up with a good coach

Probably a great recruiter.

This is a public institution. You can't choose to ignore the minimum job requirements for the postion because it is inconvenient.

If they don't feel that a degree is necessary, they should either take it out of the minimum qualifications OR do what most businesses do, require an educational standard, but allow experience to substitute for some or all of the educational requirement. I mean if John Wooden came back from the dead and wanted to coach your team, would you really care if he even graduated from high school?

(Notre Dame is a private institution - they can do whatever they please as far as this subject.)

Yeah, but we know that's a formality. When Georgia Tech recently hired Ted Roof back as their DC, they made the deal with him then posted the job on the internet for a day with job description language about having coaching experience with a BCS DI school, etc etc, just to meet their obligations, and then they signed the deal. But they already knew who they were hiring and they tailored the job description to him.

Also, and let's be completely honest about this, it's not like USF is Harvard, Stanford, Notre Dame, or Vanderbilt, academically. It's frickin' USF. Slap the guy on the wrist and force him to take classes over the summer months until he finishes his degree just to send the right message to the kids. But, still, it's USF.

You obviously don't work for a public agency.
