No requests yet for Johns Hopkins' assistant coaches

Much ado has been made about the head coaching vacancies at Maryland and Penn State, and there’s also an opening at Division III Washington College in Chestertown on the Eastern Shore.

Two potential candidates who could be considered are Johns Hopkins associate head coach Bill Dwan and offensive coordinator Bobby Benson. That might be a long shot considering both played collegiately for the Blue Jays and are firmly entrenched at their alma mater.

But interviews with one or both are possible. Still, as of last week, head coach Dave Pietramala had not received requests for Dwan or Benson.

"It’s still early in the process," Pietramala said. "I have the good fortune of working with two wonderful assistant coaches. I’m smart enough to know that at some point in time, they’re going to move on to be head coaches. That’s our goal here at Johns Hopkins. … Our goal here is to help our assistant coaches and associate head coaches to be the best coaches they can be so that they can move on and become head coaches."

From this post to God's lips to get Benson out of Hopkins. He is an awful OC and a direct reason why no top attackmen want to attend Hopkins.

Who in their right mind would consider Benson for a head coaching job?? That is simply laughable...

The Sun needs to get its nose out of Petro's you-know-what and start reporting about the real changes required to get JHU back to the elite level.
