The fact that they're D2 might help a little IMO. Sure it won't change the conference, but deeper tournament runs shouldn't be as difficult as in years past.
And even though St. Peter's was a terrific D4 school, I'd have to think that any coach applying from the outside would look at last season's schedule and think twice about taking over a big program that couldn't beat a D4 school.

Which is why we need a re-boot. Fresh eyes so to speak. A little closer look at that D4 school reveals 2 players from MCS (Cobb there because of dad's blowup with Sr coach), a Madison kid and coaches son. Not a bAD d4. Ask Ashland how they liked getting beat by StP. StP didn't really beat Sr. The coaching staff lost it. Anyone who was at the game knows what I'm talking about.
4 interviews finished. 8 more tomorrow. Todd Krill is likely to retire after the 17-18 school year. Final 2 or 3 candidates will have a second interview next week with the final choice ready for the June Board meeting.
Mansfield's new AD is a woman who has taught special need students in the Mansfield District the past 14 years. Her last and only connection to high school coaching was over 14 years ago when she coached softball at Black River and has no experience in Athletic Administration. She got her masters degree from University of Phoenix. She doesn't even live in the school district. The 3 female board members voted for her. One of the 2 men on the BOD was absent from the meeting, the other voted against her. The male BOD member said there were several positions to be filled and all of those, including the AD job, were included in the same motion. It was not possible to just vote for or against the person offered the AD job. You were only able to vote for or against the slate of people up for several positions. Very strange.
