UMaine basketball coach taking medical leave

ORONO, Maine — University of Maine women’s basketball coach Richard Barron will take an indefinite medical leave, effective Friday.

“I appreciate the concern people have showed me over the past month,” Barron said in a news release. “My condition was not improving and the medication had side effects that interfered with coaching effectively. I care deeply for our players and staff and I believe it is in the team’s best interest that I take a medical leave. I know our fans will give them their full support.”

Barron could not be reached for further comment.

Has there been any update on his situation? I mean, it has been a couple of months since any sort of update right? Is he going to be the head coach heading into the very important April recruiting period?

Why is the upcoming recruiting period "very important' when they only have 2 seniors and 1 scholarship was already filled last fall?

This is the time when you are either working hard on closing some players (getting them committed to visits, etc) or working hard on evaluating kids for the future. But yeah, I forget that it's all about foreign kids for this program now so maybe it isn't a big deal.

I'm guessing that we will get an "official" update sometime before pre-season starts in August although fiscal year goes through June 30th I believe so if there is a permanent coaching change maybe we will hear something by then(?) I'm sure that a coaching decision for next season will take place over the summer as Barron's health picture becomes more clear one way or the other.
