My gut tells me, he has been already been looking for awhile ... not necessarily I need to get out of here now search... his name is at a Robert Half type search firm... his resume is updated....a number letter of interest samples available ... a market plan in place... plus a list of places he like to work at... a search that allows him to consider something if he believes better for himself and his career.... considering his background... could go back to corporate .... or on to another institutional position ....  I do not think what happen to McElroy is not loss on him ....

The staff knew at the beginning of the year.

Firing a coach while the university is having financial problems probably doesn't put you in a great position in terms of offering more pay to a new coach. That might have been something he should hav

I reserve the right to invoke the former coach when the names being thrown around are uninspiring retread coaches with losing records. That's all I'm saying (well, not really.) People who wanted

I know this thread is supposed to be about the new coaching search but it's become the "we love Will Brown" or at least "Will Brown was our best option" thread.  Look if his contract wasn't up I get i

Gotta get my cheap shots in now just in case we have to look up at them in the standings in the future. :)

While this is not directly on topic, however Binghamton University made an announcement yesterday:

https://bubearcats.com/news/2021/3/8/mens-basketball-sanders-introduced-as-new-mens-basketball-coach.aspx

Apparently, their A.D. knows how to get things done quickly.  I sticking with around mid-April 2021 for Benson to make an announcement.  That said, the new coach was on staff as an assistant coach.

That is a joke hire.  An easy hire.  I expect a new head coach my next Friday.  Mid April would but atrocious.

Let time be the judge of the hire....two teams made the tournament on Tuesday....one's last appearance was 25 years and the other last appearance was 13 years ago .... how coaches have come gone between these teams...you never know if a coach is going to get you there...

Haven't posted for a while, but I'll say no AD makes a move without having their lists set up. Generally it's those you pray you can get, those you think of having a chance to get and those where you know the interest is mutual. All of this is done well in advance of the current coach leaving. You always have this list and always update it (your coach can leave at any time). Being that Benson knew he was making this move for a while now (years) all the research has been done well in advance.

Speculation per the HoopDirts website:

 

Albany: Sounds like top 3 (in order) – Desmond Oliver (assistant coach Tennessee), Kyle Neptune (assistant coach Villanova), and Dwayne Killings (associate head coach Marquette). Siena’s Antoni Wyche lurking in the next group with other potential candidates Tobin Anderson (head coach St. Thomas Aquinas), and Gerry McNamara further down the list.

I really like this list, though Oliver and Neptune more than Killings.  Apparently Oliver is a hell of a recruiter and really boosted the Vols recruiting into the top 5.    I also like that they would be taking from high profile programs, which i'm inferring a desire to grow the program on a national vs. regional level.

Joe Gallo and Chris Markwood should be in the top 5.  Then I’d have Oliver and Wyche in that group.  The fifth...gonna keep that one to myself.

The definition of the right coach (Roy Williams) and the wrong coach (Bobby Knight despite winning 902 games)

Came here thinking there was a new update on the process or that we hired someone only see Roy Williams and Bobby Knight...

Who cares about Williams or Knight in a UA Coach Search thread? Make one OT: NCAA thread and stick to it man.

Sigh

If this is the move Benson has lost his mind...Credentials are very poor on first blush. FIVE years he's been planning for this change and IF (big if as of yet) the associate coach of a 13 win team is the move than he's crazy. 

I guess time will tell...
