Head Jack of the Lumberjacks
I've wondered about Jack Murphy for years.
1. Who is that guy giving instructions to AZ players during pickup games with the players seeming to really listen?
I was told that he was a student manager named Jack Murphy.
2. Why did Josh Pastner hire an old crony as an assistant coach when he needed an old experienced coach to help him in first HC job?
3. Why did NAU hire someone with so little experience as their new head coach?
4. My days of wondering may be over. Oregon was favored by 20 points last night and won by only 10.
NAU had a 1-15 conference record last year, but played Oregon even in the second half in their season opener.
That was the first of 6 straight road games for NAU. I guess their budget doesn't match the budgets of UA or ASU and Jack needs to earn some jack for his program with guaranteed/kamikase away games.
NAU pull this one out of the hat. He was under the radar and worked under some good coaches. NAU needed new blood and with his assistance he will improve the team.. Flagstaff is starving for some good BBall.
