I was mildly surprised by tremendous this post: Chris Mooney is the 65th longest tenured coach in D1 men’s basketball (out of 351). Well done him, UR, and Jim Miller (for the hire). Mooney’s position also passed a little known rule: all coaches in the top 66 for longest tenure must have a coaching tree.
Without further ado, the Chris Mooney Coaching Tree:
• Pete Carril (Princeton)
• Chris Mooney (Richmond)
- Jamal Brunt – Kim Lewis – Rob Jones – Kevin Smith – Ryan Butler
• Kevin McGeehan (Campbell)
- Peter Thomas – Dan Geriot – Greg Robbins
So that’s a start. Hit me on twitter @SpiderBandwagon to let me know what branches I’ve missed. I’ll update this post as the tree grows.
