Howland’s First 100 Days

Nice piece by Eamon Brennan on former UCLA head coach Ben Howland getting comfortable at Mississippi State after taking over in April. The topic of a coach’s first 100 days in a new job always fascinates me and Brennan’s article does a nice job summarizing what Howland has been up to. It will be interesting to see if Howland is able to get his Mississippi State squad to guard like his UCLA teams early in his tenure (three consecutive top-5 defensive efficiency seasons)

“I love him,” Newman said. “He’s just intense, man. Extremely demanding. Extremely competitive.”

How so?

“In everything,” Newman said. “Every drill. Every workout. Every conversation you have with him. The way he talks. The way he carries himself. Everything is — he’s always a competitor.”
