    Interesting to see Barry Hinson step down as Southern Illinois coach after a 10-8 and 3rd place MVC finish.

    Will Wade sure looks like he's got to go at LSU. And on the same note, Mark Gottfried should be on the unemployment line soon.

    Should be a lot more coaching news over the next week.

    (Started a new thread because that four year old one that just got revived is a little disjointed, and we've usually kept the discussion of coaching changes not involving Butler over here in the ATL section).

    Didn't realize Bryce Drew was on the hot seat because I figured he'd garnered some goodwill with his early success on the court and in recruiting, but I also pay zero attention to SEC basketball and didn't realize how historically bad Vandy's season has been.

    Anyway, some interesting perspective on how his dad and brother both struggled a bit their first few years:

    Sean Miller all but resigned today. Zona will be open. LSU definitely will. Nebraska could be. Texas certainly could be. Ucla is open.

    Just too bad butler isn't open. Tons of good coaching talent out there. Those jobs mentioned will get stars as their coaches. As we become filth. We're missing a Huge opportunity to hire a real staff.

    I’m glad Butler isn’t on the job market. LaVall will go down as the longest tenured, winningest coach in Butler’s history.

    Sounds like Danny Manning is out at Wake Forest. That's the second best job to come open - so far - behind UCLA. I am assuming Arizona and LSU will also open, bumping it further down the list.

    Sounds like Texas and Shaka Smart are parting ways as well

    You talk about someone we should kick LaVall into the other hemisphere for...shaka and butler would be amazing. Alas...we'll not even upgrade the staff.

    BU: Mr. Smart, if we kick LaVall Jordan to the curb will you take over?
    SM: Um, what is your budget?
    BU: A shade under $5.5mm in 2017
    SM: Wait, that's less than VCU ($6.1mm) and I dumped them
    BU: BUT, Hinkle is a classic venue, and our fans are amazing. I mean, you know, The BUTLER WAY!
    SM: Even with the upgrades, your facilities don't compete with other high majors and your fans grew up worshiping ND, IU, PU and OSU, wearing non-Butler gear all over campus.
    BU: But Trip is cute!?!

    Willis - Can we live in reality? Unless we all decide to give our millions of dollars to the athletic program, we have to work within the constraints of what are program is and will be for the near future. Does that mean we have to suck, NO.
    As overused as The BUTLER WAY has been, it represents trusting the process. Accept a level of commitment that is necessary to achieve greater results than the sum of its parts. Raise the players you have and accept that although our level of error is less than other programs, we accept and persevere. S*@# happens and this year was an absolute stinker. But, if you think we're a Final Four program that is underperforming, than it doesn't just start @ LaVall or Collier or the facilities or the campus, it starts with our undergrads and alumni living and breathing Butler Basketball from the time they are in the womb and living and dying Butler Blue with their hearts, their wallets and their passion, ala Duke, UNC, IU, KY, GONZ to name a few.

    Shaka Smart has been mediocre at Texas and has had player problems off the court.

    The fact that this year feels so bad also demonstrates just how successful our program has been.

    There are several schools in the same boat as Butler, next year will be a key. Several additions. several deletions and hopefully brighter days.

    Ohio is open.

    Ryan Pedon's name getting tossed around as a possible replacement for Saul Phillips.

    Well, then I guess there is no reason to play the games. Let's just anoint winners based on Title's theory.

    Some notice of high level violations has been sent to ga tech. Tied to pastner. That could be another opening. Ga tech won't stand for that ish.

    I thought TX was idiotic and unfair when they fired Rick Barnes. Now look what Barnes is doing at Tennessee! Super happy for him. Always think of him as a class act ... just as a hoops fan from the sidelines.
