Dials' career averages over 132 games were 11.9 points and 6.6 rebounds per game.

Hope he does just as well as a Professional Development Director.

Glad to see Andrew Dakich back too.

Don't know the other fellow, Robbi Rucki. Perhaps someone can fill us in on his background, and for that matter, what Dials did leading up to this (after pro hoops in Europe, China & Uruguay!)

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

Someone at OSU is good at making up glorified job titles.

A great name from the past but would be better in development talking about the good old days on the banquet circuit. They need someone with a HR/headhunting background in this position if the true intent is to hustle up internships and job opportunities for the kids. He doesn't have any of that from playing in Cyprus and Switzerland.

Those who remember watching play know that Dials was a BEAST.  I think, unfortunately he had bad knees and that affected his career.  Happy to see him with the program.

Can Terence play one-on-one games with the players outside of regular practice? When there is “open gym” and players are scrimmaging against alumni and others, can DIals provide “pointers” to the players?  Or are these gray areas that teams do not uniformly enforce?

Holtmann just knows what he’s doing. What a fantastic hire, starting with Holtmann himself.

Study up Mr. Dials, a crap load of NCAA regulations you need to learn.

I got to see him play a few times and he always played hard. I think it is good when former players end up back at OSU in some capacity.

Always good to see alumni back with the program.
