Dave Telep recently examined the effect of the looming coaching carousel on the world of recruiting and offered quality advice for all those about to land head coaching jobs, urging them to resist the temptation to hire old friends and instead make well-strategized decisions about their staff, particularly when it comes to their recruiting connections. This made me think about the region I know best, the New England prep schools, and which college coaches have the most ties to the talent-rich league. At first, a variety of different names immediately popped into my head, but while there are literally dozens of coaches from all levels of college basketball who have been able to successfully recruit this league, the vast majority typically holds ties to a specific school or two.
