Dave Braine to Step Down

The rumors have been circulating since before Christmas - that Dave Braine would announce his retirement soon after the new year, primarily due to health reasons. Now the news reports that an announcement is due this week. No surprise here. Note that Paul Hewitt has a clause in his contract that gives him 18 months after Braine leaves to leave himself without penalty. However, I fully expect Paul Hewitt to stay in ATL. He's got too much going here, he loves the area, his extended family have actually moved to ATL, and he's got a recruiting pipeline built that can put this school in the elite in the near future......... Stay tuned.
