    Detroit has contacted Slick Rick (along with a ton of others) about their coaching vacancy.

    Detroit may actually be an attractive destination for Slick Rick. With Windsor, Ontario right across the river and with those great clubs and hot strippers, Slick Rick all might be all over this one. I can see him sitting front row and leading the "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!" chants.

    Wow! Agree Windsor would be a real temptation for Bickie, I've been there several times and it is well worth the trip.

    This could be a grease fire that has the potential to lead to international conflict...:p

    It is a way to get fan feedback and public opinion...

    The Pistons are casting a wide net, hence the Beilein and Kenny Smith interviews. The Jet, quite literally, has zero coaching experience.

    I think they'd be silly to hire Beilein; but then again, we are talking about the Pistons here, so your guess is as good as mine.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Beilein were willing to take the interview, but the Pistons, especially as the roster is currently constructed, is a place where your coaching career goes to end. They interviewed Kenny Smith because of his relationship with Stanley Johnson. The Pistons have never had much stability with their GM and head coach concurrently. Stan Van Gundy's 4 seasons is the second longest streak of stability at both positions (and he was doing both) in the history of the Pistons franchise. It seems like a terrible idea to have your GM and Coaching Search being conducted simultaneously. I would think the head coach would like input on who was going to be picking his players and the GM would probably like input on who would be coaching them.

    That being said, it seems as though current assistant Luke Yaklich would be a popular pick to take over Michigan basketball if that were to happen.

    Michigan's got one of the biggest athletic budgets in the country. They'll have all kinds of options. They're not going to hire a guy who's 32-38 in two years as a head coach (though they should!). The Michigan faithful would lose their minds. Heck, OSU nation was lukewarm (at best) on Holt and he'd won 4 Tournament games in the last three years.

    I hope the Pistons hire Belein and Michigan gets a good coach that can keep them occupied for the next decade. This could work out perfectly (though I highly doubt Belein takes the job).

    I don't like this. AD's copy what is hot. Stevens has shined since leaving Butler, and Holt is taking OSU into the upper echelon of basketball. As much as LJ is a work in progress, considering all the variables, last year was a successful campaign.
    Should this come to fruition, I hope LJ rebukes their efforts at the door.

    Yeah I will be nervous. But I would be more nervous each subsequent year. Presumably, belein will leave within 5 or so years—this is our best shot for LaVall to stay should Michigan be interested.

    Yeah if he goes to the Pistons, Michigan WILL contact LJ 100%. LJ then could possibly do the same thing to butler as he did to Milwaukee. I doubt he would go but as we know, money talks.

    If it all transpires, then my (potentially cold) take is he stays. Butler is now in a relevant league with high-dollar money due to tourney shares and a sweet TV deal. Holt wasn’t a Butler guy and did not have the blood, sweat and tears in the program that Vall does. I actually see only two reasons for him leaving “early”, both of which are highly unlikely - he’s forced out, or a true blueblood comes knocking.

    I do hope this helps the staff get a bump in pay. While LaVall hasn't shown that he can maintain or build a program over a period of time, I do think he's shown the ability both on the recruiting trail and on the sidelines that shouldn't be an issue.
