For all you MD haters, Gary McKnight once again showed what a bad coach he is and so lucky

MD beats Sierra Canyon ( I swear the 5 kids from Sierra Canyon looked like D1 guys ) in the finals of the Summer League Tournament at Fairfax

I realize it is SUMMER league, but a tournament win is a win, guy is simply way too lucky 1,033 times!!!

Yeah he's not a bad coach by any means but he does have a crap load of assistant coaches and a couple of them do the Lion share of the coaching. I have to give that little chubby tree stump Quinn credit he is the defacto head coach and does a very good job.

Anybody who thinks that McKnight just rolls out the basketballs and the team wins on talent alone is an idiot. Granted they have had MANY great players throughout the years but they are incredibly well coached. I’ve seen his teams for 35 years and it’s really a pleasure to see the player spacing, ball movement, screens, great defense, etc. Last year was perhaps the crown jewel of McKnights championships. MD had no business beating a more talented Sierra Canyon. Coaching!

You tube the championship game of the 2018 Fairfax Tournament final and look at the 5 kids from MD and the Sierra Canyon kids

MD hits 3's and plays D

How many CIF titles has he won in the last 5 years? I honestly don't know. I never thought he was a bad coach. However now that other schools recruit, it is interesting to see they are not always number 1 ranked.

That is the consensus opinion but I’m not sure it’s confirmed or that he has officially enrolled.

Which is not surprising since he's only 13 and just finished the 7th grade

Had no idea the kid was going into 8th! With all the internet banter about what high school he may be attending I just assumed we was going into 9th grade.

When the time comes, Miles Simon will replace McKnight and Lenny Vandermade will replace Rollinson.

LeBron’s son will be going into 8th grade, if he is enrolled at Sierra Canyon it is for 8th grade. Sierra Canyon is a K-12, actually I think they even have a preschool.

McKnight runs the program and Quinn coaches the team. Great combo led by Coach McKnight who maximizes their strengths. The success and duration is amazing. Was disappointed to see them lose Assistant Coach Rusty Van Cleave. His success at Foothill was amazing and he was such a positive addition to their staff. Too bad he is no longer there. MD will continue to roll.

Where did Rusty go? He is very good coach. Why did he leave Foothill?

I'm absolutely stunned that with that type of resume Gary McKnight has never been mentioned for a college coaching head coach positon :eh?:
Heck even Rollo was "approached" for the Oregon football opening right? :giggle:
I guess winning with overwhelming talent isn't too impressive. At least Gary should have been considered for the recruiting coordinator role..... he'd be perfect at that.

Why?, I would not be surprised if McKnight is in the ballpark salary wise with some of the
lowest bottom tier NCAA HC's, with the camps, endorsements , etc.

Rollinson could have been the HC at many JC's, which is a very desirous job, once you
get tenured , you can't get fired or laid off, (barring shooting someone in the back ,etc: and it will still take a year or more to get rid of you while you collect full pay!) if the powers-at -be, re-move you as the HC, you are just transferred to another position at the JC, at the same pay!

Plus, you are in the state teachers pension system even as a FB coach!
