He replaces the recently fired Jim Crews. From the Times Herald-Record-
(Athletic Director) Anderson confirmed that Spiker agreed to a six-year deal. The Academy will introduce its new hire at a news conference at 3 p.m. Tuesday at West Point.
Spiker, who was on campus for an interview this week, expected to leave Cornell on Saturday morning and arrive at his new home on the Hudson Saturday afternoon
Army hasn’t had a winning season in 25 years. In light of the recruiting restrictions placed on service academies, Spiker will have a hard time reversing that trend.
Why did Army fire Crews only days before his basketball team was to begin practicing for the 2009-10 season?
He replaces Jim Crews, who last month was fired after being accused of physically and verbally abusing players.
If Crews abused his players, his firing is justifiable. I think abuse of college athletes is more common than the few and far between reports of it that emerge sometimes.
