It will be interesting to see how this shakes out. Who would replace Simpkins. Perhaps Skinn (is it too late though).
Would be a major step down for Skinn to come be an assistant at Mason.

Assistants move back and forth between P6 and mid majors all the time. If the Associate HC position was still available, then it would be a promotion.

Low assistants and video coordinators/recruiters make the move a lot, Skinn is currently the second assistant and probably is making more money than Simpkins is as our head assistant. Making that move would be a step down for him career wise.

Agreed. Although remember Simpkins was associate head coach last year, so I suspect even as the #2 guy he is making good money. I think the budget for assistants has grown a lot over the last year or so.

I have no idea how it compares to Skinn but I too would be surprised if he took the #2 position at Mason versus being the #2 at Seton Hall.
 
I just talked to a big player at DeMatha...seemed very high on Simpkins if that's the direction, said almost definitely top three candidate.

Said Jones had DI offers (head) before but a lot more money at play now, assistant big schools.

Man gives VT a great "current" pipeline in the area and through his USA Basketball work.

Will be interesting to see if Simpkins applies/gets it. Very sought after job...

From my anonymous buddy heard there's a chance to a page & half of projections.

Welcome to the off-season dead period!!!
Lol, I definitely didn’t mean to make it sound like I had a “big secret inside source”. A friend who is a huge VT fan and donor told me they were getting Jones on Thursday, and that Simpkins was most likely taking his spot as HC.

He doesn’t even know who Simpkins is, just that he heard he was a Mason Coach so he texted me to tell me and I shared.

Interesting. I thought it was odd that she and their two adorable girls were not at the press conference. But none of our business.

Not like it matters but are you sure he is still married? No mention of his wife on the website and I thought I saw somewhere that she lives in Missouri...but yes she is hot!
Not his wife but I do believe he’s referred to her as his best friend. It was in one of the interviews he did since taking the Mason job.

I thought he mentioned he isn’t married in an interview. But the girls mom is his best friend
