Bobby Lutz is one of the biggest recruiters for NC State, helped bring Tyler Lewis in (McD AA) + is one of the main recruiters, attending many camps/tourneys, for many of the 2013 targets as well.
Also if Bobby Lutz sucks, then why did VTech have him 2nd on their list for next head coach?
Bobby Lutz has been great and so have those former assistants of his, who are also recruiting like crazy for state.
Lutz did well with what he was given, Charlotte is a hard sell to any recruit, its hard to blame the winningest coach in your schools history for the lack of success. I mean the guy went 19-12 in his last season there and Major has yet to get them to .500
Lutz didn't recruit Lewis to NC State, Lewis followed him there.
Lutz gave his brother a walk-on spot with the chance to earn a scholarship when he was at Charlotte. Tyler was around our program all the time because of his brother. If we had kept Lutz, Lewis would be a 49er next year.
Lutz has admitted in interviews before that he hates recruiting. I'm not making it up.
Former coaches have said that Bobby sold recruits on the conference and never sold people on the school. That's what a lazy recruiter does. His recruiting approach was piss poor for the A10 and it ultimately got him fired.
Lutz excelled coaching in a league with a uptempo style. He could never figure out how to play the grinding style of basketball that many schools in the A10 play.
I can turn that VT question around on you. If Bobby is so great, why did they hire the assistant from the coach they just fired? VT never did anything with Greenburg, why hire his assistant to lead the program?
Bobby is a smart guy and a great game planner. He fits his role at State very well and should stay there and thrive in that role.
