Two more transfer from Wake Forest; how long does Jeff Bzdelik have?

The implosion of the Wake Forest program continued on Friday.

A day after rising junior Carson Desrosiers decided to leave the program, rising sophomore point guard Anthony Fields has decided to transfer. On Tuesday, starting point guard and third-leading scorer Tony Chennault announced that he would be transferring.

For those scoring at home, in two years at the helm of the Demon Deacons, Jeff Bzdelik has won five ACC games and seen eight players leave his program. Currently on the Wake Forest roster? One senior, one junior, two sophomore and six freshmen. The only point guard they will have in the program next season will be four-star recruit Codi Miller-McIntyre.

That’s a problem.

It isn’t difficult to envision next season for the Demon Deacons: lot of losing, a lot of players unhappy with the losing, a lot of transfers after the season. It is a difficult cycle to break, especially considering Wake Forest isn’t even one of the top three programs in the ACC from the state of North Carolina.

At what point does the Wake Forest administration decide that they need to cut ties with Bzdelik? If they fired Dino Gaudio after just three years, two of which ended in the NCAA tournament, how much rope will Bzdelik get?

    Wow. In two seasons, 8 players have transferred from the program with only 5 wins conference wins. It’s one thing to be trailing Duke and UNC in the standings, it’s another thing to be blown out at HOME to NC State too. Now, no one is even coming to the games anymore. I’m not sure what else Ron Wellman needs to fire this guy.

    Wellman, I’m sure whatever naked photos this guy has of you cannot be any more embarrassing than the depths in which our once proud program has sunk.
