Re: Ranking Our Current Coaches
Forgot about Cammon. I'd put him at #9, right ahead of Joy.
Agreed. I might put Munson at 10, Joy at 11. Munson at least took a dead program (thanks to Shi+mard, Maxson, Reynolds, and Morgan) and gave it some life for 5 years. Joy, I don't think she'd done anything but lose. He hasn't destroyed it completely yet, but every year seems to get worse. He's the ultimate survivor. Must be protected by another dimension.
I think its fair putting Valenzuela where you did. He seems like the real deal.
Missing coach Cammon WBB among others.
Haven't done this in awhile. Use whatever criteria you want. Consistent success is a pretty big metric for me.
1. Alan Knipe
2. Jenny Hilt-Costello
3. Mauricio Ingrassia
4. Andy Sythe
5. Eric Valenzuela
6. Gavin Arroyo
7. Michael Wilson
8. Kim Sowder
9. Joy McKienzie-Fuerbringer
10. Alyssa Waite
11. Dan Monson
Now, you might ask how I can rank the brand new women's golf coach above Dan Monson. Good question, easy answer. She hasn't single handedly ruined a program.
Also, I might have unfairly ranked Eric V. too high, but I think he's going to prove to be an excellent coach.
