Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press called John Kuester and found out the coach still hasn’t had his end-of-year meeting with Joe Dumars:
Kuester said he doesn’t know when he will sit down with Dumars to discuss his future and hasn’t been given an indication one way or the other.
"I’m quite sure we will talk soon," Kuester said.
Kuester’s absence isn’t that unusual. The only members of the coaching staff in the area are assistant Pat Sullivan and advance scout Bill Pope. Dumars returned this week from scouting overseas, and the rest of the front office is going through draft preparations — although no decision has been made yet if they will bring in prospects before the pre-draft combine, which starts May 17 in Chicago.
The meeting could occur at anytime, and I doubt it will change the inevitable. I can’t see Kuester returning for a third season.
