Andy Katz on Seton Hall’s decision to fire Louis Orr -
Seton Hall’s decision to move Louis Orr shouldn’t come as a surprise. Seton Hall AD Joe Quinlan wanted changes and was willing to take any hits for removing a coach who went to two NCAA Tournaments in three years. Orr, a gentleman and a friend to many coaches and players, isn’t an extrovert and that might have hurt him with the Pirate alumni. The challenge of upgrading the staff and the lack of any kind of extension talk basically made him unable to continue. Orr had told ESPN.com last week that he wasn’t sure what he wanted to do, but the decision was ultimately made for him with the buyout of his final two years of his contract Friday. Meanwhile, start the line for this gig: Iona’s Jeff Ruland (very interested), Manhattan’s Bobby Gonzalez, Hofstra’s Tom Pecora and Davidson’s Bob McKillop among others.
