I don't hate the name . I really don't hate any of the "top 3". 

He has been to several schools and they have had success. 

Both Tennessee and Villanova are in the tournament. I'm guessing if it's one of those guys we won't name it until they are eliminated.  If it's the Marquette guy we will know very soon.

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

Ya'll gotta tell me (since I don't follow NCAA sports outside of the big stories on the ESPN homepage or this forum)...should I start sharpening my pitchfork? Are we mad?

Interesting, let us see where it goes...looks like Dwayne has America East experience with Boston University....both spent part of their lives in NE...I think there are better jobs somewhere for each....but Desmond is the choice .... I hope he is successful....he is my choice

Give me Oliver or give me death...isn't that the famous quote?

Perhaps, Oliver's line is "I been everywhere man"......assistant at 9 schools... 4 in New York... You think he be trying to land in the CAA or Atlantic 10...MAAC! That said I like the type of schools previously at and his resume progression

I like both... but both come with risks ....

Desmond Oliver got passed over at Kennesaw State (one of the worse D1 programs). If he is so great I would think we would have had a head coaching job by now . 

Killings is coming coming of a sub par season at a slightly lower school (still the big east).

I would consider both of these guys good hires from high conferences.  Both have had success. 

I don't know much about either but I hope Benson gets this right.

wonder why it was so back and forth though. He went from a top tier program like Texas A&M to Cornell, and then again from Georgia to Canisus...but maybe that's common if the coach you play under gets let go?

a first time coach who was an associate coach for a 13 win team. Fun times.

No .... I believe this is a good hire.... he won at temple...then moved up to uconn... then has had some success at marquette.... in other words he is going up ... 

Oliver being an assistant for almost 30 years sinks ... somethings not right there.... plus the up and down worries me ...

I'm on record is saying I LOVE this hire ....
