    I guess he just didn't want to succeed at the NBA? Look, I love Chill, but let's not pretend like an amazing college basketball career extrapolates to success at all things. I've made many job offers he would fail miserably at.

    Childress hit McInnis with that 2nd Pfizer shot though.

    It wasn't necessarily the fear of losing BC. It was more that Wake wanted to allow Randolph to coach his son uninterrupted.

That was capped by watching Brandon getting his diploma from Wake.

    Randolph might well have moved on when Forbes arrived, but last year the transition was anything but normal. He stayed and helped mentor Forbes in "this is what Wake Forest University is about." That was the one unchecked box on my list when Forbes was hired. And, because of Covid lock down, something that was much more difficult to do than in a normal transition. One more task completed, or at least well along. Randolph is continuing to give back to Wake.

    Now let us hope that Wake will repay that by giving Randolph assistance in finding what he wants to do next.
    Yes, this.

    I agree at 100 %. I do not know how anyone could hold him responsible for the decade long mess. I mean I can tell my boss that his process is crap.But that does not mean he will listen.

    Yeah, I'd be pretty confident in thinking it was the other way around: RChill wanted to stick around for his son's tenure.

    Were we ever at risk of losing Brandon? Seems like he was always already coming to wake
