Princeton Vikings Job OPEN?

Anybody know what happened there? He was just securing another great recruiting class from what I could see!

I do not know why. But I heard that he would resign a week ago. He had a lot of talent and young talent

So does that mean Bazely moves again since he went to Princeton for the coaches?

Why can't Princeton keep coaches?

Per Mike Dyer:

Princeton has announced Boys hoops coach Leon Ellison has stepped down. Steven Wright named interim coach.

One and done with the top team in the GMC returning----something BIG to give up this position.

Will Steven Wright be the full time coach or will they try to hire next year?

I heard when Bazley went on his unofficial visit to Syracuse that his high school coach went with him. Was it Ellison or Wright because that same week Leon resigned. Just weird to me

I won't even address that ignorant statement... but since your in the know why don't you explain. (the real reason) at some point the administration will be exposed. I'll wait! Please share! After 1 year ??? I dare you to post the real reason because everyone knows that is connected to the program. (School) and you are

Who cares what happened, my hope is that the school leadership bring someone in to lead this group of the young men. Someone that can keep them together.

Administration is 100% responsible for this happening. How a out hiring a coach who is an educator and leader of young men and leave the sleazy recruiting stuff to the AAU circuit. There is plenty of talent to be developed at a place like Princeton that this should not keep happening. You reap what you sew so until this administration works at hiring a coach with a track record of leading and mentoring young men, this will keep happening. To me, the AD need to go with this coach so someone else gets the next crack at hiring a basketball coach. Disgraceful.

So was Ellison sidelined due to a "health reason" as stated by Princeton in their announcement of the interim coach--or was it due to "recruiting" and "sleazy AAU stuff" as you mention above. If it's health then he technically wasn't fired and will be back next year--if it's recruiting issues then I'm sure he's gonzo.

As far away as it gets from recruiting. More on the personal side and Leon stepping down before major drama hit him and the school.
