If anyone can turn around UVA WBB, Dawn Staley is it. Would she get her current roster at SC at UVA right away? No. However remember USC was dog s**t until she came...and that is an insult to dog s**t. She would rebuild the roster and at least get us back to a Sweet 16 level program in 6-8 recruiting cycles (I suspect less).
That being said it will. not. happen. Bridges burned, etc but also she has everything she could need at USC besides a few minor quibbles about practice facility. Above all else...she has turned the equivalent of a road side stand into Walmart. You do not leave that unless we want to absolutely reset the market in terms of salary, staff salary, facilities, travel etc.
