The continuing education of Eric Devendorf

Love him or hate him, Eric Devendorf is too busy climbing the coaching ladder and spreading positivity to pay much attention.
By Matthew McClusky Oct 11, 2018, 9:00am EDT

There are inspirational messages that read like posters found on a guidance counselor’s office walls. Yawn-inducers. Like something shared by your friend’s mom on Facebook that might as well have kittens grasping at branches, urging everyone to hang on for dear life but holding little meaning to anyone who scrolls right on past.

Then there are messages that actually might just inspire...

Good fortune that has now afforded Devendorf, practically an adopted son of Syracuse, to be able to leave and head back to his real home of Michigan. Last month, he joined the staff of, fittingly, the University of Detroit Mercy. It was a decision reached after discussions with Boeheim and the other SU coaches, and one that is viewed as “a step up” in coaching positions. Devendorf is now the special assistant to UDM head coach, Mike Davis—the one-time coach of Indiana, UAB and Texas Southern who is in his first year in Detroit.

“Eric was an assistant strength and conditioning coach at his alma mater prior to leaving the University last year to pursue a coaching gig with the Detroit Mercy.”

With the Detroit Mercy ...

I googled TBT and it stands for The Basketball Tournament. It is a 64 team single elimination tournament with $2million in winner take-all prize fund. Since 2015 Coach D has played on a team in this tournament with other ex-Syracuse players called Boeheim's Army. In the article there was no mention of him leaving UD to join Syracuse. Good luck to their team!

Good clarification, I misread the article.

titanmike, my apologies, looks like I'm the one that made the mistake, if indeed Devendorf is leaving, like it is rumored on the other board. You're right, that would be a huge loss.
