@MikePar61546669: Do you think Texas A&M Kingsville moving in the right direction with their new coach. They have a lot to fix. 

Shehan Jeyarajah: TAMUK is unquestionably taking a risk by turning the program over to a coach who hasn’t coached at the collegiate level in more than a decade. Mike Salinas even spent 2019 away from high school after getting into private business. 

However, he does have experience with the program both as a player and coach. He had other success in the conference at West Texas A&M, a stint at FCS Sam Houston State and quite a bit of success at the high school level. This is a big step for Salinas, but the talent and potential is there. 

The key question will be about administrative buy-in. TAMUK has struggled to keep up with other Lone Star Conference teams from a facilities perspective. It reportedly scared off some other high-profile candidates. For Salinas to have a chance, that has to change.
