Wanted the job? He pulled out like all the others that initially expressed interest. .

Like I said this job has greatly diminished since Dannen became AD. There was no real interest once salary, scholarships and lack commitment emerged during the interview process. We got the best we could that would accept under those circumstances. And if JU doesn’t work out our next coach will have to accept doing more with less in that regard as well.
Just getting a winning season will be challenging going forward. Hope I’m wrong but this article is a stark reminder of why we hired Jay U. (Hold onto recruits etc) was his recruiting class really the best since 2014?

Wake Forest coach Tom Walter pulled out of the running in the past week. The job was proving less attractive than in the past, when Tulane went to two College World Series and nine consecutive regionals from 1998-2006 under coach Rick Jones.

sey what !!! diminshed since TD took over, stop the madness...TD is a true visionary...just becasue his vison is full of cataracts and glaucoma, there is zero reason the doubt his superior judgement
per TD.... "thy judgment, shall never be judged"... or ye shall be banned from facebook and tic-tok
Be a Hero Today.... Adopt a Shelter Pet... The Beatles once sang "Can't Buy Me Love"... I disagree, unconditional Love can be bought, for the nominal adoption fee at your local Pet Shelter !

He wanted the job just as he did when TJ got the job. He pulled out when it was made clear that Uhlman was going to get the job. That's how it always works out with job searches and the candidate knows he's not getting it.

Like I said. It was a better job when TJ got it. Since then under Dannen it’s gone downhill. He wanted it before he interviewed not after.
Ok let’s for a second go with your theory that he wanted the job. Why on earth wasn’t he hired?

I love how people want to constantly bash GS for not having sources at Tulane but when it suits their purpose they want to cite him. First off he clearly was interested and interviewed. Tom Walter is a long time HC and coached at UNO. He is fully aware that the job and the program are not the same. He is at a private school so he deals with the limitations. It is ignorant to suggest that he didn't know the job had changed.

Let’s assume all that. Why then was he not hired?
Please let me know.

Because it was clear the job was going to JU. Like I said all coaches who apply for jobs withdraw their name when they realize they aren't getting the job. Happens all the time.

Not the question. Not asking why he withdrew.
The question is why wasn’t he hired if he was so interested. Is he not a better candidate than Jay U?

Because it was going to be JU all along. The search was bogus. He believed TJ was a cancer and if removed JU could elevate the team. He was very wrong.

Not going to change your mind but on this we have a different opinion. Neither the money nor the commitment was there to get Jake, Tom or anyone else with a better resume. The search was bogus because they knew they couldn’t offer what the better candidates wanted (going cheap again) . Jay deserves a chance and I’m not knocking him. I just believe he was the only candidate that didn’t drop out and really wanted the job the most. If he fails to produce I believe the next candidate will be more of the same. I don’t see Troy spending a whole lot of money on making baseball better. Hope I’m wrong here but until then “show me” otherwise.

It's not about opinions. Everyone agrees that TD doesn't seem committed but he's been the AD for going on 8 years . Walter and the others saw that plainly. They all know the college baseball landscape and know he did away with baseball at his previous school. They also have agents that look into matters to advise if they should be applying. Despite all of that they also saw that the facilities are there and felt they could overcome any obstacles and thus wanted the job. Like every other coaching search once it's clear someone else is getting it they withdraw to save face.

It was fishing season for Dannen--much easier to give the job to JU than actually go out and try to find a good head coach. Dannen doesn't like having to recruit new coaches.
