He should've learned those things in 10 years as Roy's assistant (or as a player). That's rookie stuff.He doesn't know anything about coaching, which is kind of the point. There are two examples late of why you don't hire a guy with no experience.
1. UNC doesn't want to run clock. Pitt does. UNC scores and sets up to press and looks at the ball sitting there between their legs like it is a cucumber and they are ****** cat scared of it. Pick it up and give it to the ref so he can start he count. The clock is running Hubert. But they haven't gone over things like this because those are things you learn when you coach for a few years.
2. Half court trap and UNC has two guys trapping two guys out front while the other three just stay on their man. So those three Pitt players don't move and Capel, who is an awful but at least an experienced coach, looks on incredulously like 'WTF are this UNC dudes doing'. So they just pass the ball back and forth and UNC is confused on why whatever the hell they are doing isn't working.
Those are just the two easiest that come to mind. You learn that crap coaching. Then you come to UNC.
