The experts agree

Don't take our word for it, the media agrees that leadership over the DePaul Men's basketball program has failed. DePaul great Mark Aguirre recently had this to say about DePaul Men's basketball:

"If you’d have told me back when I was playing there that this would be the state of DePaul basketball, it would’ve been unconscionable. I would’ve said, ‘You’re out of your mind.’ Just think about it. Would you ever have guessed this? No. It’s unimaginable." - Mark Aguirre

Marc Silverman, Mike North, Steve Greenberg, Scott Phillips, and Andy Katz chimed in:
