    Now I see RMU sources favoring a young assistant as their new coach. I can't help but think Burke's resume made him a good choice for us.

  2. Raff I read from Goodman that Burke got fired from Georgetown. Is that incorrect considering he got a recommendation from JTIII?

  3. Dan - I was told that everything checked out very highly on Burke - that he was recommended by JTIII and Cliff Warren among others.

    Not sure about the circumstances at Georgetown at the end. Although, it did seem strange to go from Georgetown to American. I believe he was a finalist for the Holy Cross job last year as well. Maybe it had something to do with his long-term commitment to the program. And maybe it had nothing to do with JTIII and was a forced move from above.

  4. I wonder if Burke was the only one they could afford. I have heard that the Mount is pretty cheap as far a employment goes. i am worried about this G'town dismissal, but maybe since John T still likes him, we could have a good connection and get some DC boys as recruits.

  5. I suppose things will be getting a little precarious as to Burrell's status since Dunlap is not the one.
