Yawn... Yep. Steve Pederson says so, it MUST be true...

from the article and ESPN..

Quote:
and according to ESPN’s Pat Forde, at least one other school shunned Haywood because of red flags in his personal life.

Pat Forde says so, so it must be true. Where is the quote? What school? Who said it?

If you want to call Pederson a liar, present your evidence. We already know for a fact that Pitt used a search firm to identify candidates; that was announced right after Wanny's firing.

You wanted sources. You got sources.

Yeah, I'm believing a quote from the guy who is on the hot seat.

They used a search firm. If you bother to read in any depth, you will find he did NOT use the search firm that virtually every other school uses in these type searches.

Face it. Haywood's character flaws were out there for the taking as evidenced by several schools pulling back and ESPN.

Further, the pattern matches past SP "efforts" as coaching hires, i.e., fast, shallow and in attempt to make some kind of unique splash - rather than thorough search.

No dispute there but he did get both of those coaches in only one hire when he grabbed Howland from the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks 8-) 8-) .

Know I didn't. I got, "so and so says that somebody said". No attribution.

Yeah, I'm believing an unattributed quote from some website. Who is more gullible?

ESPN knew it, but Pitt didn't, Miami didn't, Notre Dame didn't, Texas didn't, LSU didn't, Ball State didn't, Ohio didn't, and Army didn't.

It looks like Pitt's pulling back on Tom Bradley. Maybe he's a wife beater.

I guess ESPN does not count to you. Go figure, I guess Forte is making stuff up. Never mind that he works daily in the coaching community.
