Despite Bzdelik's overall record of 36-58 in his three years at Colorado, he was successful in lifting the Buffaloes from last place in the Big 12 to 8th place and a 15-16 overall record in the 2009-2010 season.
Although his first game is more than six months out, Bzdelik's next few weeks will be very busy with his first order of business being to re-affirm commitments from the five recruits set to join the Demon Deacons in the fall.
One major factor that is likely to positively affect Bzdelik's ability to re-affirm these commitments is the announced retention of Assistant Coaches Jeff Battle and Rusty Larue. Both coaches have maintained contact with the five signed recruits and, now that the hiring of Bzdelik is official, will likely look to quickly confirm all continue to be set on joining the Wake Forest program.
