Bino pictured here (a Sunpapers shot) seems to be in. Hopefully this will lead to a quick turnaround on the Faust decision. Andy Katz reported last night that Turgeon will bring his assitant with him from A&M. His is part of his bio:
Veteran college basketball coach Bill Walker is in his third year as an assistant coach at Texas A&M after serving as senior athletic assistant in 2007-08. “I’ve watched Bill’s career blossom and grow,” A&M coach Mark Turgeon said. “He has been around the block and is a great assistant because he is always looking for ways to make your job easier. He is involved in a lot of aspects of our program and his opinion is highly respected because he has done so much in his career.” As an assistant at Minnesota from 1998-07, Walker was responsible for recruiting Big Ten Freshman of the Year Kris Humphries, who was a first-round lottery pick by the Utah Jazz in 2005. He also recruited 2005 first-team All-Big Ten performer Vincent Grier and the 2001 recruiting class that included 2002 Big Ten Freshman of the Year Rick Rickert. That class was ranked among the top 10 in the nation by many publications.
