Quick on the trigger

Centenary athletic director Tom Tallach has been on the job less than a year, but apparently he saw enough to let men's head basketball coach Rob Flaska go.

Flaska coached at Centenary for only three seasons and never saw a recruiting class go through a full four-year cycle.

On the surface, that seems a bit unfair.

But here is the real issue for Centenary: Who wants this job?

Oh, you'll hear the Centenary folks talk on and on about candidates wanting to coach Division I basketball. But if you don't fund the program at the same level as the teams you compete against and if you start demanding progress in,oh let's say three years, then your pool of candidates isn't going to be nearly as good as you might think.

Centenary is on the clock.
