Good thing that (a) we've won a few games lately, and (b) we don't have a known ongoing academic scandal going on, otherwise, given this extended Jeff Goodman tweet, we'd all have justification to ask the "Fire Mullin"? questions again.

Per Goodman:

Orlando Antigua was fired for a lack of wins, but the ongoing NCAA investigation into academic fraud -- which ultimately led to his brother Oliver's departure back in July -- obviously played into the decision to be let go. One source close to Antigua said that his staff -- with his brother and Rod Strickland -- was a big issue. "Way too inexperienced," the source said. "And they had all these guys from New York on staff -- and didn't sign kids from New York."

Their roster includes three NYC kids: Isaiah Manderson (6'10" jr.) and Luis Santos (6'9" soph), both from the Bronx, and Troy Holston (6'4" soph) from Queens.
Weren't we on Santos at one point? What's the rules when transferring when a Coach is fired? Can they play right away?

Yes on Santos from St. Rays.

I believe normal transfer rules stand.

Oliver A also coached Santos w Dominican Republic basketball.

Would we be interested in Santos if he left, or are we above him roster-wise by now?

South Florida can't be happy with investigations and losing records.

He is big but not a very talented basketball player. The only guys I would take as transfers are starters and stars and not slow 8th man on a shitty team. Call me picky. ;)

Seton Hall had recruited Santos, and given the DR connection to Delgado, wouldn't be surprised to see him having interest in the Hall.

Possibly. But remember the Hall recruitment was connected to Antigua being an assistant. When he left, the Hall wasn't getting him, just like the Hall wasn't getting Delgado without Antigua. Have no idea if Antigua left the Hall on good terms.

Wasn't thinking of Antigua, rather that Delgado seems very happy at the Hall,has had a productive career there, and that he might be able to use the DR connection to lure Santos to South Orange should he decide to transfer following Antigua's firing.
