Why not keep him the BOR has historically shown they don't give damn, the Chancellor s**t on the school, with the athletics fee debacle, So sure why not keep Benford as someone above said, we deserve him, since we allowed 5 yrs of garbage, so why not completely destroy the basketball program, all the upper admins seems just fine with it.

Benford has just been the latest chapter in the UNT Athletic Department Value Book. Jimmy Gales coached in his last year of a contract, rewarding us with a 5 win team. Vic Trilli was allowed to coach his last year of his contract, rewarding us with 4 wins. Tina Slinker coached here for 16 years and left with a career losing record as the womens coach. Todd Dodge rewarded us with 1 win in half a year of his 4th year of his contract, after winning 5 games in the previous 36 games before it. Now, Benford, has added to the lore with rewarding us with exactly 1 CUSA win in his last year of his contract.

But I do think the tide has finally turned. When we bought out Petersen,  McCarney, and then RV's contracts, it sort of showed that we are ready to change this path. As I have said all along, if keeping Bumford for a 5th year meant RV being gone, it was worth the trade. Wren Baker gets his chance to show us something with this next hire, in a sport he knows very well. We shall see, but this will be what defines Wren Baker's early tenure--getting this right.
