McCourt's decision to stay is 'no-brainer'

[MONMOUTH MEN]
Monmouth, one of the nation's up-and-coming men's programs, got a boost when its head coach decided to stay at home. Rob McCourt, a finalist for the Rutgers job that went to Saint Louis coach Dan Donigan, passed up several job offers when the New Jersey school made an offer too good to refuse.

Monmouth athletic director Marilyn McNeil told the Asbury Park-Press that McCourt will get a five-year contract beginning in 2010 and, the Hawks will have the number of scholarships they offer boosted to the maximum of 9.9. In addition, there are plans for the renovation of the Monmouth home field, the Great Lawn.

"I just thought it was too tough to walk away from this," McCourt told the Asbury Park-Press. "I certainly feel like Monmouth has returned the commitment I've given to them. I also think I have a nice balance between home and work. In the end, I think it was a no-brainer."
