'72, I knew Greg a little when I was at St. John's. He was one of the nicest and funniest guys I remember from those days.

And a key player on Coach Lapchick's final team that won the then-important Holiday Festival and NIT. Solid and smart. That said, hoping Tim will be back coaching before too long.

Redken, that would have been the first brother, Hank

Duh! Yes, of course I was thinking of Hank. Just yet another sign of aging. :(

Agree.

I wanted him as coach, probably more then anyone here. However, we didn't really recover from this under Lavin (who I liked), so it likely would have ended somewhat similarly here (Iona has a much better chance to regain it's status as a MAAC power, when he does come back).

Thanks for the update. My prayers are with him and glad to hear it is not life threatening (although it still could be life altering).

Tim is one of us more than most here realize. He is a big Redmen fan, had read this site, and this was his dream job. I was a big advocate of him getting the job, but I am also very happy with what we have.

The Cluess family has had far too much by way of heartache. All very good people. Wish him the very best, and hope he is doing what he loves most, coaching, as soon as possible.

My son was Iona men’s basketball team manager for two years and I’ve met Tim many times. Alway a class act.
Wish him a speedy recovery
