I guess the hope is that he will be able to focus more on recruitment.
I think he is better suited as the A.D. The reason being is that the coach does the recruiting and as you so correctly pointed out, that is their biggest problem. Tommy Coolen was a great recruiter at Acadia; possibly not the best coach in the league.
STU needs a Trevor Stienburg type of guy who knows the game and can recruit players to a less than desireable situation. When he came to SMU, the program was in shambles. He brought in a bunch of retreads from Jr A and has not had a losing season since. Whoever you guys get, I hope he gets the support he needs from the administration.
