Yes, CCSU has a strange way of handling almost everything - I don't know if the lack of budgetary resources is the cause or result, but it is always a major factor.
http://www.courant.com/sports/college/h ... story.htmlRossomando announced he was leaving on a Monday, Jan. 21, and there was a six- or seven-hour period that followed during which everyone associated with the program waited for direction. McCarthy was awarded the job over defensive coordinator Drew Crist, who has since left to join the staff at Ohio State, and that was the needed quick fix with national signing day less than two weeks away.
Central did not want a prolonged coaching search so far into the offseason. It wanted to get on, or keep on, with business as usual. That is responsible, and refreshing, because the university sure has a strange way of handling things at times.
Example 1: The 2016 search that led to Donyell Marshall being hired as men’s basketball coach was complicated in that Marshall wasn’t then-AD Paul Schlickmann’s choice. Schlickmann was overruled by university hierarchy.
Example 2: Schlickmann left to become AD at Fairfield in August 2017 and that position at Central was left vacant for an entire athletic year and nearly a full calendar year before Barrio was hired in July 2018.
