Does McCasland grant (pun) interviews with local Denton media? Would love to learn more about the off-season. What is he looking for? Is everyone coming back? What does he generally see in recruits that most other coaches don’t see? What are the goals for the coming season? Any top kids he’s in on that we may have heard of? Who is his favorite NBA player/coach? Any notable pre-season tournaments? If he were a tree, what kind would he be? 
 

We need more info than we are getting!

Vito is to busy putting together that pre-season football section.

GM is the basketball coach, not the director of communications for men’s basketball.  I imagine most coaches can’t currently discuss the players they are recruiting.  Maybe direct your questions about communications  Here.  Otherwise you could ask him yourself this summer at one of the coaches events.  He’s extremely nice & approachable.  
 

In the mean time at this point, considering he’s reversed one of the worst, most embarrassing programs in history to become its greatest in such a short time I could give two shits what he thinks, says or does.  He’s earned national respect of 99% of everyone else in college basketball that he actually knows what he’s doing.
 

 That’s more than good enough for me.

Thats wonderful you feel this way. This is not what I am asking. No coach would or should discuss names of potential recruits. I would, however, want to have a general idea of how many official scholarship are available? Are we looking to get bigger? Have we been informed that a kid (without names) may not be back? What’s the goal for next season? Very general questions to keep fans connected and engaged during the off season. 
 

To my knowledge, North Texas does not have a 24/7 cable network or coaches show(s) year round. To inquire about things during a critical period in time is not asking to much. 

No one is criticizing the coach. In fact, my amusement is that local media does not appear to ever reach out, proactively, for this content; for the benefit of fans. I really enjoyed and appreciated RV for popping in from time to time on this forum, in the interest of those interested. 
 

Thanks for the invitation for me to personally reach out to the coach. I kinda think this is more the role  for media types. Often times message boards are full of speculation, opinions and erroneous information.  Why not go through the media as a conduit. 
 

I’m equally impressed with the results in recent seasons. I don’t feel, however, that a coach,  regardless of their success, should never feel that they don’t deserve to be visable.  Not saying that Grant feels this way.
