Here’s what coaches had to say about Dayton. They were anonymously quoted in the article:
• “They probably have the best fan support outside of the power conferences as they are routinely in the top 25 in attendance. Their fans are as knowledgeable and passionate without being overly fanatical, at least from the outside looking in. There is tons of tradition and Ohio is very talent-rich, so there is a local recruiting base. Although they aren't beating out Ohio State for kids, they can now have a chance to compete with Xavier, and Cincinnati, as both of those programs go through their recent coaching transitions."
• "If you can get Dayton, I'd rather be at Dayton than a mid-level job in the ACC."
• "It is not a power-conference job, but has everything a power-conference job has in terms of facilities and infrastructure."
