Has there been a press conference yet with Coach Faulkner? I had thought I read where there was supposed to be one last Wednesday, but I haven't seen it posted anywhere and there's been nothing from any local media.

There is nothing on the YSU website.

I was under the impression of last Wednesday as well. Now everything has been pretty quiet on that front.

Pretty sure it was to be last Wednesday. 

Robb Schmidt did a quick 2 part interview on Twitter. 

Other than a couple articles I've seen, it's been pretty quiet

Ironically just saw this on YSU Basketball Facebook:

Head Coach Ethan Faulkner will be introduced at a press conference tomorrow that we’ll stream on our Instagram at 3:30 PM. It will also be on the YSU Sports YouTube channel. #goguins🐧

This appears on YouTube posted prior to his Utah State U. Job.

Has anyone seen it?

Hadn't seen that other than the interviews with the players at the end

Per a Tweet by Dana Balash, Coach Faulker's contract is 5 years at $275,000 base salary a year.

Definitely believe that this was a solid hire - but it was a pretty underwhelming & flat press conference.

Few take aways:

-All players with eligibility have returned (6)
-Danny Reese has been promoted, Evan Faulkner (brother) has been named, Mark Richmond (former director of operations at YSU) has been named, too.
-Much of the offense & defense will remain the same

Thoughts...
-The confirmation of returning players was definitely welcomed news
-think it is a great and well-deserved promotion for Danny.
-his brother, Evan, specialized in recruiting, scouting, and player development for UPIKE.
-Was expecting a little more excitement and pull back the curtain more.

So does this mean that Breland will.be sticking around instead of transferring?

From today’s Tribune/Vindy on the coach’s hiring. Lots of information on his contract that was not shown on his press conference (YouTube).

I don't see Breland name on the list of players returning.

I'm glad it appears to be a seamless transition and Coach Faulkner will carry on with Coach Calhoun had established.  It's good to hear that apparently everyone else is staying...wish we could have retained Lovelace.

I did think the press conference though was pretty lackluster...just 10 mins including questions.  Can't believe there weren't more questions from the media.  And nothing from Strollo.
