Zalesky was the senior man over Brands at Iowa. He was one of Gable's longest termed assistant besides Barry Davis. There was no real discussion and there is really no hatred between Zalesky and Brands to be honest. Brands was Jim's assistant before even going to Va Tech. Tom knew Jim would get the job over him. There maybe some tension however between Dan and Jim, being that Dan was in favor of removing Jim and replacing him with Tom.
