    I hear he is familiar with a really good basketball coach who might be willing to move up now, provided Turner has grown some balls.

    "'Dr. Washington has been recognized as one of the best deans in the country,' Hazel said. 'While he is proud of his engineering success, he has a clear understanding of the importance of other disciplines, such as the arts, humanities, and athletics, as well as faculty issues and student life and that all of these are part of the Mason community,' Hazel said."

    I'd sell my left nut for a winning coach and program at this point.

    I don't know what this will mean for athletics, but seems like a great hire otherwise. Very accomplished individual who will take Mason the direction it wants/needs to go.

    Here's what I propose for Mason:

    (1) Find Russell Turner's wife a great local job in her profession;
    (2) Work out a deal with Bucknell for Paulsen to voluntarily return to the school; and
    (3) Announce Turner as the next head coach.

    Perfect scenario where everyone is happy but probably about a 0.0000001% chance of that all falling into place.

    2 NCAA appearances in 9 years would still be better than what we have currently. He also looks like he brings a lot of winning in conference and overall.

    Nothing is imminent so its all moot anyway. Dr Washington doesn’t show up til July 1. He will need time to settle, and we’ll see what Brad does.
