Rob Senderoff expected to join Kent State staff

According to several sources, Senderoff is expected to sign a new contract within the next week to become Ford’s No. 1 assistant. It’s an excellent move.

Senderoff was considered one of college basketball’s best recruiters before being forced to resign at Indiana as the intended fall guy in the Hoosiers “telephone scandal.” He returns to Kent fully loaded with recruiting ties to talent-rich areas like New York, Indiana and Pennsylvania. He also returns to a place where he has close friends and colleagues who have no questions about his character.

I say good for Senderoff. He’s a solid young coach that got caught up in the wrong situation at IU and it’s nice to see him get another chance (if this report is indeed accurate). I ran into him last summer at an AAU event and he was nothing short of classy.

    Scape goat? More like co-conspirator. Not really a surprising hire since he was a coach at Kent State before Indiana.

    Very happy for him. He was absolutely the scapegoat in this situation. He is a great guy and deserves the best.

  • Kent State is going to regret this. Until the final report comes out, there's no telling what Senderoff did. He plays fast and loose with the rules, and if it came out he was doing something much, much, worse than phone calls, it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest.
