Jimmy Patsos is moving on to Siena.

This may come as a surprise, but considering Loyola is heading to the Patriot League and Siena is rumored to be getting an A10 invite soon, it makes sense.

Good for Jimmy. Do well there and I can see him finally landing a job at a major conference.

Is Howland not interested in any of these available jobs?

He's a hell of a coach. A lot of the jobs are obvious steps down from UCLA, but any of these schools still without coaches would be very fortunate to land him. Minnesota too small for him? I imagine if he waits a bit he can land a great job next year if one comes available.

He was such a fun player to watch back in the day at Georgia Tech..He was the glue guy on those great GT teams in the mid 80s....

Not sure, the smaller schools can't afford him (or I guess you could say, I don't think he'd take a significant pay cut to meet their demands). Minnesota just went the expensive coach route in Tubby Smith, so they may be wary to get another coach who would be costly and the job would be seen as a step down. Good chance, he just sits a year and regroups at this point I think. I think more P12 jobs open up next year. I'm surprised that Obama bro-in-law wasn't fired(or hasn't been yet). Oregon State is a step down, but he's a west coast guy. A more appealing job would be UW, which could open up. ASU might as well, that's a step up above Oregon State, but below UW. Great chance Wazzu does, that has to be one of the hardest jobs among BCS conferences, being in Pullman.

CBS Sports: Cards' Pitino says son ready for task ahead at Minnesota

 

http://www.cbssports...ad-at-minnesota

 

He might be qualified, but no way -- does he get hired from ONE year at Florida International to a Power conference at age 30 without making the Tourney, if his last name wasn't Pitino. The AD has hired two Donovan proteges (which Richard is as well) so it's hardly a coincidence, he wants the next Shaka Smart. Don't get me wrong, this hire has merit, just saying the typical coach they would hire would be at a true "mid-major"(Mountain West, A-10, Missouri Valley, etc) instead of coming from a one-bid conference.

CBS Sports: Craig Neal gets full-time gig at New Mexico

From what I heard, New Mexico might be in better hands with him than Alford.

 

 

ESPN LA: Reggie Theus takes on CSUN

 

http://espn.go.com/l...hridge-matadors

 

I wouldn't usually include a school of this stature here. Frankly, I couldn't tell you that Northridge nickname was the Matadors before seeing this story. I know it mostly from an earthquake nearly two decades ago. But what makes this interesting is Reggie Theus career map, it's quite an interesting one. He's been a high school, college assistant, college head coach, D-League, NBA assistant coach, NBA head coach(not in that order) as well as various broadcasting gigs.

 

 

The Washington Post: Jeff Jones to leave American basketball for Old Dominion

 

http://www.washingto...e8f1_story.html

 

So much for him saying he'd only leave for a "big" job. I didn't realize he was only 52. I would've thought he would've been older considering he was at UVA so long ago. The move makes sense, since his boss just left for another gig.

Patsos paused briefly when asked if Siena — of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference — was his "dream job," during a news conference streamed live on the Siena website.

"You have different dreams," Patsos said. "Anybody that knows me knows that one day I want to coach at the University of Marylandbecause the only reason I'm in this business is because of (formerTerps coach) Gary Williams."

http://www.baltimore...,0,652970.story

 

Found this very refreshing, give him credit for his honesty. Unless your a Siena alum or have some deep ties, it's probably not your dream job.

Eddie Jordan is the favorite to land the Rutgers job, per ESPN.

 

Thoughts on this? I always liked Eddie and I think he'd do a good job there.

Always liked him when he was with the Wizards, would be a solid hire IMO. They're getting an alum and someone with good NBA experience. I know the counter-argument is that he could head back to the NBA, but that's a good problem to have at this point.

Wonder if they can build on Enfield's success or they'll just be a fad?

Butler did a study on their two championship-game runs and figured that they were the equivalent of $600 million in advertising. Since FGCU only made the Sweet Sixteen, call it ~$75 million. So they received that much free press for a school that has its dorms on a beach.

 

They could have Kevin Anderson as AD and Pat Kennedy as coach and not screw that up :lol:

CBS Sports: Which school with a 'vision' will hire Bruce Pearl next year?

If Bobby Petrino can get a job, I'm sure some program will hire Bruce Pearl.

For all his many faults, Petrino never got a show-cause, or left a program with sanctions that I'm aware of. It took Todd Bozeman years after his show-cause expired to get a chance with Morgan State. I think Pearl will eventually return, but I wouldn't bet on it happening as soon as next year.

Fair point in terms of the penalties (or lack of). But I think some college President and AD hungry enough to win will hire him. He's one of the best coaches out there. Also, I'd say Pearl is a more regarded coach than Bozeman ever was. Pearl turned down a chance to be making ~$500k coaching essentially minor league basketball, Bozeman wouldn't be offered that. I think Pearl will have better opportunities and sooner as well.

Dunlap, a graduate of Loyola Marymount, was the head coach of the Charlotte Bobcats during the 2012-13 season. He also spent time as an assistant with the Denver Nuggets in the NBA, and Arizona, Oregon, and St. John's at the college level.

"I believe we should compete for championships in men's basketball," Jacobs said in the statement. "It's time for somebody else to have a turn. We need to find somebody to come in here and take what we have here now and put some more in and compete for SEC titles."

I believe Auburn basketball isn't Auburn football. :lol:

While obviously very true, they did just build a new arena and want to become competitive in basketball. The right coach there can do something. I think that program has serious potential.

I didn't realize you could build an arena for $86 million in 2010 and it doesn't look bad either.
