I like it - pulled some talent to UNCG from Baltimore. Hope he can do the same for us!
Absolutely. Guaranteed he was hired for his DMV contacts.
"This is a brilliant move by Dave Paulsen to bring in a Dematha/Maryland guy." - the junkies
Ohhhh the Junkees...... its not rocket science, anyone can see that. I'm not bashing you Deepvalue just the genuis's over at 106.7
Hire guys with big, local contacts and good things will happen.
Instead of hiring a coach from Philly so he'll bring along his pothead nephew.
It's official: Dane Fischer and Duane Simpkins have been hired as assistant coaches. Paulsen is doing all the right things so far. I'm very hopeful for the next few years of Mason basketball
Great job by Coach Paulsen in hiring 3 excellent assistants! I'm assuming that there will not be a Director for Player Development. BTW, Dane Fischer's wife is also impressive - see http://www.gomason.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=25200&ATCLID=210046492:
"Fischer is married to the former Chelsea Chowning, a former women’s basketball Academic All-American at the University of Kentucky, where she graduated with her doctorate from UK’s College of Pharmacy."

Watch out Fairfax. The Fischers are comin to town. Been away from @katieg0622 way too long. #masonnation
Duane and Dane? It's too bad Dave Paulsen's name wasn't Dan and Aaron Kelly's name wasn't Don because then it would be Coach Dan and his assistants, Don, Duane and Dane.
My brother Daryl and my other brother Daryl.
Nice, sounds like a good crew of assistants!
Mike Quinn is the new Director of Men's Basketball Operations - see http://www.gomason.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=25200&ATCLID=210091301.
Duane Simpkins @DVsimp007 · May 15
Back-cuts opposite of ball screens kill the defense. #hawks
Quinn looks like a smart hire who can also serve as an extra body on the practice floor if they ever need one. Maybe he can also give us some insight on how to beat Fordham.
Not sure that would be legal. I don't believe staff outside of assistant coaches would be allowed to work directly with the players in this capacity.
But I wont tell if you don't.

DeMatha's undefeated 1991 boys' basketball team gets Hall of Fame nod http://wpo.st/oZYQ0:
"Almost 25 years later, the group’s accomplishments seem more remarkable given the influence some of the roster still carries on the Washington area basketball scene.
Vaughn Jones starred at George Washington and won consecutive DCIAA titles coaching at Coolidge earlier this decade. Duane Simpkins, who played at Maryland, is an assistant at George Mason after starting his coaching career at Sidwell Friends and St. Albans. Joe Wootten has been the head coach at O’Connell since 1999. Chris Parsons was recently named an assistant coach at UNC Greensboro."
