As The Advertiser’s Dayton Morinaga reported today, Nebraska’s Walter Roese and BYUH’s Brandyn Akana are the targeted front-runners for positions on basketball coach Gib Arnold’s staff.
Both, like Arnold, are skilled recruiters with global contacts.
Going the international route to supplement recruiting is a practical approach for UH. It worked in the early 2000s in helping the Rainbow Warriors earn back-to-back NCAA Tournament berths.
But the economic situation is different now. Will UH give Arnold the resources to recruit internationally?
