Time will tell regarding the acquisitions of Kip Jones and Andy Rang to the IPFW women's basketball coaching staff.
Jones, the former Bellmont standout who played at Purdue, will be an assistant coach under Chris Paul. Rang, who was the boys basketball coach at South Side, will be director of basketball operations.
Both have a wealth of basketball knowledge, and in particular, Jones will work with IPFW's front court players, most notably sophomore Sydney Weinert and senior Stephanie Rosado.
As director of basketball ops, Rang will help coach, but he won't be able to recruit. And there's the subject that has some immediate concern.
Paul and his previous staff of Ali Mann, Hilary O'Connell and Alex Webster were gaining ground on the rest of the Summit League teams in terms of getting top notch high school talent along with getting Division I transfers.
The only one back from Paul's staff is Mann, which means Jones and Tara Miller, who joined the staff in the offseason, will have to get up to speed as soon as possible.
Even though IPFW had a losing season (13-17) in 2009-10, its progress from the year before was significant. Paul has gone from building individual teams to building a program worthy of notice in the conference.
It will be interesting to see what the impact will be of three new people on his bench.
