No surprise there. 2015-16 needs to be at least an NIT bid IMO for EC to be retained.
If we are even remotely in the discussion for the NIT (basically top100 RPI) he will be retained. GUARANTEED. He has an average rpi of 200+ in five years, an improvement of 100 spots would be considered an amazing year by RD and the admin.
And not because of the actual accomplishment, but because there will be easy justification for retaining a loyalist. It has nothing to do with actual results.

Ed Conroy will remain the coach as long as the Cowen/Dickson power structure is in place and Conroy doesn't have a complete program meltdown, Toledo style. We already know that Conroy can survive a mass exodus of his best players and being <200 RPI for 4 out of 5 years. It has nothing to do with wins and losses.

No NIT after 5 seasons is a joke for anyone paid more than 300-450k.

Thanks for the responses, which were about what I figured they would be. I did a little bit of research in the Conroy era. Pretty depressing statistically--

2010-11 Tulane
- 13-17 (3-13)
- RPI: 249
- 2-bid conference
- non-conference SOS: 346 (worst in conf.)

2011-12 Tulane
- 15-16 (3-13)
- RPI: 204
- 2-bid conference
- non-conference SOS: 334 (worst in conf.)

2012-13 Tulane
- 20-15 (6-10)
- RPI 130
- 1-bid conference
- non-conference SOS: 326 (3rd worst in conf.)

2013-14 Tulane
- 17-17 (8-8)
- RPI: 176
- 1-bid conference
- non-conference SOS: 314 (worst in conf.)

2014-15 Tulane
- 15-16 (6-12)
- RPI: 214
- 2-bid conference
- non-conference SOS: 331 (worst in conf.)

Overall at Tulane:
- 0-fer against RPI Top 25, which is almost as bad as only playing 6 games against top 25 competition in 5 years
- 1-19 against RPI Top 50
- 3-38 against RPI Top 100
- 7-53 against RPI Top 150
- record over the last 12 games of each season: 2-10, 6-6, 5-7, 2-10, 1-11
- 90% of his wins are over sub-150 RPI teams
- 0 players drafted
- 0 NIT appearances
- 2-5 in conference tourney games
- 1-2 in the pay-to-play postseason tourney games

Someone please send these videos to Dickson. Apparently he has no idea what TU basketball is capable of.

My God that is a shocking/sickening/disgusting stat!

I wonder if RD still thinks we're headed for the middle of the treadmill in the AAC?

Email President Fitts and Rick Dickson and give them your concerns about Conroy and his performance over five years. Usually they will not return your email if you do not donate over $100,000 unlike Chet Gladchuk or Kevin White that would take a season ticket holder and minor donor out to lunch a couple of times a year and also sit by you for a while at Tulane athletic events to make small talk. Rick Dickson is pathetic.

Even Wright Waters Mack Brown's assistant AD would do this! Rick Dickson is pathetic.

Well he was awarded a 3 year contract extension just a year ago, so not much evidence that wins and losses are relevant.

all season ticket holders should call in and say that they are not renewing their tickets.

our fanbase is small enough that it could make a difference

This should light some fires.

Conroy says since we were picked last, and finished better than that, we exceeded expectations

This doesn't start with Ed Conroy. This is the same BS we've been hearing from Cowen/Dickson for 15 years. So even though we are right, Ed Conroy, Rick Dickson and Scott Cowen will continue STEALING paychecks.

Yes, but we completely blew our chances at a lottery pick.

3 straight coaches unable to succeed here. In football 3 straight coaches unable to succeed here. This is 100% Tulane, the administration, the Athletic Department leadership. This University doesn't want to win and if they do want to win they don't know how.

When put so succinctly this is hard to deny.
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen.

Email President Fitts and Rick Dickson of your concerns on Conroy. Otherwise they will renew his contract and raise his salary. I have.

If I was hired as either AD or Head Football Coach... I would address the Admin and Faculty... "The main reason Tulane has be unsuccessful in Athletics....is YOU"... You do not have to worry about Athletic Dept "EGO's" ... the Faculty and Admin has that "trip" all wrapped up ....

Major article in the New Orleans Advocate this morning Tuesday that Rick Dickson is retaining the loser Conroy. Only way to approach this is to email President Fitts and Board Chairman Darryl Berger and tell them how you feel about Conroy and Dickson. He has a 26-56 record in conference play overall. Never got us to the NCAA or lowly NIT in five years. 1-8 home record in conference play this year. All a disaster! Conroy is another Toledo,Dickerson or Finney Rick Dickson hire. Alleged idiot Dickson like to Toledo gave Conroy a thee year contract extension last year. Also email Aresco with the AAC and tell him how this loser is killing the reputation,RPI and attendance of the AAC.
