Did you miss the point? Rather than take shots at the Stanford coach for her comments about the Tech selection, was nobody else embarrassed by the feature showing Weaver basically stating that one of the key reasons he offered Wolf the job was because of how good his daughter was. That is absurd! If that was such a strong reason, maybe we should have asked the mother of Lebron James if she wanted to replace Seth when he was let go. I hope Wolf is successful as I support all Tech teams, and maybe he would have been the strongest candidate, but it should only have happened after interviewing other interested candidates.
From what I gathered from what Weaver said was Dennis Wolff was responsible for his daughter developing into the top girls high school player in the country her senior year and getting a scholarship to UConn, the best women's basketball program. I'm sure Wolff spent thousands of hours coaching and practicing with his daughter since she was very young. Since Wolff was a provened Division 1 men's basketball coach, Weaver felt like he was able to coach women based on his experiences with his daughter. That's how I perceived Weaver's remarks on hiring Wolff. We will all find out soon enough if Weaver's intuition about Wolff was right or wrong.
