I wonder how MA feels about the fact that Mr. Carey only plans to be at MA for 4-5 years. That's not a lot of time to develop a program and win championships.

That said, the fact that he has a similar background to many of the kids he'll be coaching/mentoring, as well as a proven track record of success at the high school level, makes this an interesting hire and a story worth following for the next few years.
