One of the more overlooked aspects of men’s basketball associate head coach Johnny Dawkins’ taking the head coaching position at Stanford is how the whole process began: with former Director of Athletics Joe Alleva, of course.
- Alleva became LSU’s new athletic director April 4.
- Alleva hired former Stanford head coach Trent Johnson April 9.
- Stanford hired Dawkins Saturday.
One final twist: 2008 recruit Miles Plumlee, brother of Duke 2009 commit Mason Plumlee, received a release from his Letter of Intent to Stanford after Johnson left. Now that Dawkins, a potentially familiar face, is at the helm of the program, will Plumlee re-sign his LOI? Will he precede his brother at Duke? Or will he go somewhere else?
