The players seemed to have positive things to say about him. I don't know, we all don't know entirely if the Rap's defensive deficiencies were due to the fact that we don't have adequate defensive stoppers, or because of Jay/coaching staff to get it out of them. The thing with Jay is - he doesn't have a proven track record. Yet to his credit he also doesn't have a proper team to rightly judge his entire body of work so far (in T.O) as a success or failure. Lets remember that Jay was called upon by the US national team to be part of the staff for the Olympics. That speaks volumes to me. The US is not short of BBall coaches. I'm not entirely sold on Jay as our HC either, but if the raps somehow land a Pass 1st PG, a real C and possibly a vet or two, I would give him the opportunity to take on a another 1 or 2 yrs.
