So I got the call this morning from Monmouth, and they officially offered me the job. I accepted it, so now all I have to do is find out when they need me there and how I am going to get back to NJ. As stated before, it looks like I will be driving. And there is that background check that they are going to do, I should be OK, but you never know what skeletons will fall out of the closet on those things. So, this experiment called living in San Diego is coming to a close. I will be back home in NJ in a few weeks, enjoying the cool fall days and nights, soon to become the cold winter days with horizontal snow fall. Awesome.

So I have been slacking on my blog posts, but I have been busy, Yesterday was filled with watching the Terps take down Clemson and cleaning up a bit. The wife and I got a lot accomplished. One issue that has not been resolved yet is my car. I was leaving to go to a friends place in PB and found that my car is dead. None the less I made my way down there. Watched a little football and had an eventful night out. I am also in negotiations to get my man Will involved in this world of blogging. He always has something good to say. Will keep you updated. Other than that I have nothing.

Today, I started cleaning up the house a bit just in case I take the Monmouth job if offered. Can't leave the wife with a messy guest room. I have come to the conclusion that if I am offered the Monmouth job than I will take it. I'd say it's a 95% chance I will take it. This probably gives me another week or two in sunny San Diego. Other than that I have nothing much to report. However, my friend has a blog as well. Check it out when you get a chance. http://thiscouldquitepossiblybenormal.blogspot.com/

So, I am still waiting to hear back from Monmouth. While I am still subbing and coaching at La Jolla Country Day, I have started looking into other options for work, both coaching/teaching wise and corporate/real world jobs. I have heard that Under Armour is interested in starting a grass roots type of basketball program out here in So Cal and I would be interested in working for UA in that capacity, but those are just rumors and innuendos. Today, though I did look into how I would make the trip back to NJ were I to take the job. Seems like the best (read cheapest) way is to drive myself. Those auto transport companies are about a grand, and I don't have that kind of money nor time (they take about a week or 2 to deliver). It took me a little over 2 days to drive to San Diego from MD, but I think I may take a little more time to get to NJ were I to drive. Stop in Amarillo, Indianapolis, then to good old NJ over a course of 3 days. Maybe I will plan a route that will take 4 or 5 days to travel. But the planning is pure speculation as I have yet to be offered the job, nor accepted the position.

OK, so this is my foray into blogging. Some may find it interesting, while most will not. I will try to stay on topic for the most part (meaning talk about myself and what is happening in my life). However, sometimes there will be a need for special commentary (ala Keith Olbermann). So lets start with the fact that I have just returned from a wonderful weekend in NJ. My brother Sean Feeney and Maria Maculaitis got married and I was lucky enough to be in the bridal party. Phenomenal time. Got to see some old friends and family and made some new ones. On my trip back to the Jersey Shore, I had a interview with the local university (Monmouth University) for their Director of Basketball Operations position, and I think I have a pretty good shot at landing the job. Only problem being that I would possibly have to leave the lovely wife in sunny San Diego for a little while until I get settled. Bummer. But sometimes the best thing for your future isn't the best thing for your present. That's all for now. Stay tuned...
