    New SEC Basketball Coaches

    Alabama - Nate Oats
    Vanderbilt - Jerry Stackhouse
    Texas A&M - Buzz Williams (expected to be complete within a day or two)
    Arkansas -
    LSU?

    Arkansas was expected to hire Kelvin Sampson. Reports are Nevada coach Eric Musselman is in town for a visit today.

    The Vanderbilt hire did not go over very well yesterday. Stackhouse is a G-League coach right now with zero college experience and no connection to Vanderbilt.

    Very odd hire by Vandy, imo. Sampson will win. He always does. Buzz Williams is probably a good hire for aTm but you really never know, do you?

    LSU? Very interesting situation. Are they thinking Wade might make it back? Heck, Wade might be in prison if things go just a certain way.

    I said at the time that Vandy made a mistake firing Bryce Drew. Yes, this past season was a disaster but Bryce is a good coach and I think he could turn them around. For Vandy, Bryce Drew is about as good as you could expect to get.

    Stackhouse is a reach of Wiltian (Chamberlain) proportions. Sixers career when I knew (of) him by way of UNC. At least Avery had some familiarity with the region where he was having a go as a college coach. Edit: Looks like he played for Avery in Dallas, so there's that...

    Was hearing Sampson wants his son given the "coach in waiting" label if he's coaching at Houston or at Arky.

    The Vandy hire does seem weird ... I think that was because of his connection to the new AD. Thinking it may be a CAJ situation all over again.

    LSU may be in a real interesting situation if they don't personally make a decision on Wade. Not seeing how they can wait this one out.

    IMO Stackhouse will be another Avery hire will be mediocre.

    Doubt Stackhouse will take same route as Avery because Stackhouse has done great job of developing players in G league.. and he can relate to the players. I think he will be fine at Vandy... The way he handles things aren't the same as Avery...

    Buzz is now official. Very solid hire for TAMU.

    It’s a home run hire. The coaching in this league is ridiculous compared to half a decade ago, and it just keeps getting better, even as there’s turnover.
    Just a barner.

    There goes Davis!

    Yeah, someone on the radio the other day was saying that even with Nate Oats we had one of if not the least accomplished staff in the SEC moving forward. I don't think that's a negative for Nate Oats as much as a testament to the number of very successful coaches we have in this league now. It's like an all-star team.

    Re: New SEC Basketball Coaches

    Looks like the Arkansas search has turned into somewhat of a disaster...

    Link

    Steve Alford, Formerly UCLA

    Fire: Though we couldn't originally confirm Jeff Goodman's report from Tuesday night that Steve Alford is in the mix for the job, a source confirmed to HawgBeat that Alford was the fourth coach that Arkansas AD Hunter Yurachek talked to after Musselman, McCaffrey and Pitino Monday and Tuesday. The source close to Alford's camp says the search has come down to two, Alford and another coach that has been talked to as well. The AD's communications with Alford's camp began last week.
