Back home, Ed Cooley tries to rebuild Providence
Question of the Day
Another difference _ and another challenge _ for the Friars will be adjusting to a new set of offensive plays and defensive schemes. Cooley said his players have barely begun to learn the offense, and Council said they will also have to learn to play a full-court, intense defense, something they did not do last year.
The Friars will have only four weeks of practice before their first game against Farleigh Dickinson Nov. 12.
“It’s going to be tough, but you know, we’ll get through it,” Coleman said. “We’re going to get this thing rolling.”
That is exactly what Cooley is hoping he do in his first season. He realizes the obstacles involved. But there is talent there, and the future looks bright.
“I love Providence College,” he said. “I always wanted to be here as a player, but I wasn’t good enough. Hopefully, I do a great job as their head coach.”
