    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    Citing multiple sources “in the athletic department, on the board of trustees and in the booster sector,” the New York Post is reporting that St. John’s coach Norm Roberts will be let go after the season ends.

    Chris Monasch, the athletic director, has been very supportive of Coach Roberts throughout his tenure and he’ll comment when the season’s over as he’s stated. Coach Roberts is on campus today and we’re going to do the Red Storm report.”

    Roberts added in a text: “Waiting to see if we get into NIT. Won’t decide until season’s officially over.”

    Roberts is 81-100 in six years at the Queens school.

    The Post listed Iona’s Kevin Willard, Virginia Tech’s Seth Greenberg, Hofstra’s Tom Pecora and Harvard coach Tommy Amaker as potential targets and said the school was prepared to offer Roberts’ replacement $1.5 million annually for six years.

    Sources said neither Rutgers nor St. John’s had reached out yet to Willard.

    • Norm could not get it done in NYC.

      And what about Jim C.

      Yes, Yes,…we heard that nice news conference.

      For MONTHS, the contract is there.
      The contract is done and ready.

      BUT, it is not DONE-DONE.
      You know what I mean.

      Special clause makes it hard to sign.

      If Jim decides to walk, I can respect that.
      He is a big figure for U Conn and having him in the stands will also be great.

      Either way….Jim C. is good .

      Whatz your name, GGGirl.

      If she laughs, you have her. For sure.
