ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — UNM head basketball coach Paul Weir held a virtual clinic for coaches and players across the country.
The Saturday clinic offered tips, drills and philosophy with not only Coach Weir, but all the Lobo Coaches. Over 100 people around the country took part and Weir said he was pleased with the way it went.
"All of us are changing what we're doing and how were doing it and I just thought it would be pretty cool idea. Quite frankly, I saw another school and program do it, the University of Louisville did it and I thought, 'Man, what a cool idea.' We have all these interactions with coaches in different ways, let's get them all on a Zoom call and just try and give them something," Weir said.
"Twenty five percent of the kids we have stopped recruiting is because we have looked at social media and I would say 25% of kids go up in your eyes because you have looked at their social media and the way they are branding and representing themselves the right way. It's not just the highlight video, it's more of a way to get a perspective into them," Weir added.
Weir said that he has had some time to think about how his sport being affected by the virus. Opening day for college basketball is November 11.
