Milan had a very poor recruiting class his last year. He would have taken steps backward had he stayed.
Yes the team played hard for Henry those few games, but it was more out of the relief than anything else. Eliminate what happend, Henry doesn't even make the interview list for a D1 head coaching job.
Hopefully the administrators will stay out of the decision process this time and accept the recommendation from the AD and her staff.
Best bet will be a dynamic and energetic assistant at a smaller program with excellent recruiting references and preferably ties to the MD/DC/VA/PA area.
