    Re: Why delay the inevitable?

    Hold on - are you throwing "eyeshade" on Butch Patrick (a/k/a Eddie Munster, also known as Billy Donovan) for being Tidefans firestarter "linniepatrick?" That would conjure up a conspiracy theory all its own regarding recent 'Bama basketball coaching...

    I think the fact we got Avery shows you the Athletic Department doesn’t care about an elite basketball team. So we can do a lot worse. Unless we are willing to bring a forklift worth of cash to someone in the upper echelon of coaching what does it matter?

    Re: Why delay the inevitable?

    Donovan would not come for all the tea in China. We fired one of his best friends(Grant). If we do make or move or end up being in the market for a new coach, there are options out there. We need a splashy hire IMHO or we are just doing the "wash, rinse, repeat" cycle. If you aren't playing for championships, what is the point? We haven't sniffed a championship of any kind since Wimp was here.

    We are paying one of the highest salaries in the country. I think we are in the top 20.

    How about someone like Roy Rogers? He's as Assistant with the Rockets now I think. He's 45 (so he's not too young, but also not too old), and he might actually love being here. I just think we need to quit believing we will get an elite coach to move here -- or some young buck that will love it here and that won't use us as a stepping stone. We need to find someone that wants to be in T-Town -- and can make it happen.

    Interesting choice. I personally think we need someone with college head coaching experience. The names I listed are all realistic. I also think we should not concern ourselves with trying to find someone that will be here for the next 20 years. If a coach comes in and takes us to that next level, then leaves for one of the "blue bloods" of the sport, I am fine with that. If we show a true commitment to the sport, then it will become harder and harder for a successful coach to leave. Prohm is also an alumnus, correct? I think our AD should try to get the best possible coach we can. Is that an elite coach? Probably not, at least not today. But, it can be a very successful coach with a proven track record.

    He gone. But, I bet Jimmy Chitwood would be available. I bet we would be much improved from the free throw line and would use the backboard. Not sure the picket fence play would work today.

    Could you elaborate on other issues?

    I like CAJ and was hoping he would be successful (living in SA gave me a connection to him).

    Re: Why delay the inevitable?

    I can tell you unless he leaves on his own this year, there will be no changes. You guys can put that out of your head. Debating coaching candidates serves no meaningful purpose at this point. We still have a team playing and that should be the focus. We are at least a year away from any potential changes being made at head coach. Our AD believes in stability. Remember recruits are watching.

    Edit: I'll qualify my statement. Unless there are other issues we are unaware of at this point.
