In a shocking move, the Hurricanes were able to pull Jim Larranaga away from George Mason. I live in Northern Virginia. Larranaga and his wife live right down the street from my buddy's parents. His son John (who played at GMU) lives in the area and played on my men's league team one season. Most figured he'd spend another 5 years or so at GMU and then retire. Larranaga, 61, may not coach too much longer, but he serves as a major upgrade from Frank Haith.
