Not only on to NOLA, but a bye straight into the semis. That is huge. Win two in NOLA, and the Trojans punch the NCAA ticket. This group could very well win a game or two in the Big Dance, especially if it gets a 12 or 13 seed.
She has interviewed for other jobs in the past... but, when/if she leaves her assistant coach would be a great replacement
I agree. Graf would be a great replacement. It seems she would keep the same system in place, recruit the same, keep the "family" culture, etc.
The only thing I'd be worried about is her head coaching record when she was at Northwestern State from 2004-2012. She didn't do too hot there... her last season she went 6-23. But maybe after spending time under Rigby, she has grown and learned more.
In any case, I hope Troy can give Rigby and her entire staff a nice raise. They are more than deserving of it. We need to keep them around as long as possible.
