Rex Interviews at MERCER?!? (UPDATE: he's gone)

According to Ted, this is true. The question is why?  I could see interviewing for a job at a bigger school for more money, but Mercer?  Does Rex have a connection to someone at Mercer?  Something is fishy about this.  Does anyone know of any friction between Rex and Angelos?  Mercer??  I'm confused.

Angelos is also a finalist for the AD job at LSU… what's going on in Owl Country?

That at least is a big step up.  MERCER??  They have nice facilities, but if Rex thinks recruiting here is tough, try recruiting in the ASUN.  Really odd.

I wonder if there has been anything made of Rex's ill-timed technical foul in the tourney?  Perhaps that caused some friction…That's the only guess I can come up with.  He hasn't been perfect as a coach, but I think he has the team heading in the right direction.

So, who's our next coach?

Wow, let me get this straight. Walters was with the team when we moved up to the SBC from the A-Sun and now he is moving back down to an A-Sun school again. To a private school of 2600, in Macon, GA. This might have something to do with that rumour posted on another thread.

This really kills alot of momentum we have built up over the last two seasons with the sexy rexies, the rowdy rex's, t-shirts, t-rex, etc.

WOW! I am in total disbelief right now! There's gotta be more to this story, you don't leave a team in the Sun Belt to take a job in the ASun at a school like Mercer!

I wouldn't mind seeing coach Ballado as the next head coach. I just want someone who's not going to promise us he's not going anywhere and then screw us over again

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

This shouldn't effect the fan groups…just their names.

I'm sorry but there's more to this story then we know of. Was it Angelo's doing? I think we deserve some sort of an explanation. Daughtery is here for 1 year he leaves Rex takes over he's here for 2 years now he leaves WTF!?!

With what money are we going to hire a new coach? I really think Ballado deserves the job he won't require as much money but I don't think he has the recruiting potential that Rex does.

Speaking of recruits I hope we don't lose any of them because of this, how many players have come here because they said "Rex knows what it takes to get to the next level"

Apparently Rex knows what it's like to screw you over too
