So there are as many staff as players? Is this unusual?

What's the basketball budget up to now?!? Not to criticize the xCBD firing at all - he needed to go - but what could he have accomplished if he had a staff this size??? I will say, it actually puts a lot of pressure on Stackhouse to succeed, and fast. If he doesn't there is plenty of room for criticism.

I looked at the 2018-2019 Press guide and it looked like Bryce Drew had 8 coaches and support staff, plus Brock Williams (Vice Chancellor) and Debbie Green(Admin Assistant) who both have been at VU through several coaching staffs. I didn`t see any "Special Assistants, or "Senior Advisors" on Bryce Drew`s staff.

If Drew added four more friends and relatives to the staff this is how the season would have ended up:

14th in SEC. 9-23 (0-18)

Just as it ended up with the "staff" he had in place.

So if we can add 2 more, we'll be as good as them! This is exciting.
