Cleveland State basketball coach goes adios

We hired the right guy.   Surprised they let the staff go in July opposed to last March.  CSU's demise hurts the Horizon.

Half of their players, including all of the good ones, entered the NCAA transfer portal.  I have no idea if Felton was incompetent or if the players he recruited are selfish and delusional. 

How would you like to be a Cleveland State graduate and a sports fan?  You don't play three of the four traditional American college sports (football, track, and baseball.)  The fourth sport is a basket case.  You are ignored completely by the local media, and your marketing department is so atrocious that it actually makes its YSU counterparts look good. :P

During bad times, I guess we should always remember that some other places have it much worse.

Wow. Firing your coach in July is very odd. There must have been some underlying issues that led to this. I know they've had a lot of players transfer out and leave this past offseason.

2019-20 basketball roster is out and no Cameron Kane Johnson nor John Salley listed.  Anyone have any info on this?
