That's what I'm getting at. In what I saw here, he was definitely good at, and ready to, work one-on-one with wrestlers in the room. That makes him very ready to be an assistant coach. He was in no way ready to lead a program in an organizational way. His teamwork was at about a 1/10. A head coach needs to build a good team.
Im my opinion, associate head is usually a title used to keep someone around as a highly-paid assistant. That person is usually not responsible for running the program.
I give Perry 0.05 years of experience. He would have to build an exceptional coaching staff around himself - and hand off almost all of the administrative and leadership roles - to be a head coach.
And also, Perry isnt your average 26yr old former wrester. With his family background he probably knows more about wrestling than a lot of current head coaches. You don't grow up being a Perry, going to Christmas with the Smiths, attending high school at Blair, spending five years at Iowa with Zalesky, both Brands' and Gable and end up being a wrestling moron. I would say that background would make him a better HC than many current HC's.
Gable ( and Cael) are exceptions to the rule.
Its official. Seems like he's taking Carl Perry's spot on the staff.
