    He will still be paid about 400K by IU so he might just sit the year out.

    I mean, if Ragland gets the job, at least that will give us something to speculate over until the Euro trip...

    Odd timing to pick up a third assistant. If it happens, I'd love for them to bring in someone like Matthew Graves (not sure if he'd be interested), Nored or Mike Green that has more ties to the program. Being so late in the game, I don't see either Turnbull or Luko following him given the portal free transfer time has expired.

    I would think that McCollum is the front-runner, but you never know.

    Selfishly I’d like Rags to stay but also think it’s in his best interest to get a little more seasoned at the high major level. Thad’s contacts are far and wide so could see him going outside the BU tree if replacing Rags—as he’s shown with his other hires.

    I think one can still transfer into June or maybe July if there is a coaching change. But why would Turnbull or Simas go to Evansville?

    Is that if there is a change to any member of the staff, or only the HC?

    McCollum over 80% winning percentage as a head coach. He's doing something right Evansville. Hope we hang on to Ragland for at least another couple of years, if not longer. Apparently he can recruit, and makes a nice 1 - 2 punch with Matta. Need some time to continually build the roster as we turn around the results on the floor. Success on the court will become the best recruiting tool. Imagine what Matta will be able to bring on the roster once we are competitive in the BE and routinely punch our ticket to the Dance.

    Not that Butler would block them if they really wanted to transfer, but this only mentions head coach: https://www.ncaa.org/news/2021/4/15/di-council-adopts-new-transfer-legislation.aspx

    Some exceptions to the deadlines would apply in cases of a head coaching change or canceled athletics scholarship before July 1.

    Hopefully this is the whole keeping-both-sides-happy deal for possibly the next head position there. Rags having to assemble an entire staff towards the of May/beginning of June in Evansville is no easy task. The other dude is a proven winner. There'll be better options for Rags.

    It’s not Ragland at this point. McCollum, maybe. I still am following what the money wants, and that has me sticking with Hollender.

    Well out of the three I assume Rags would be the cheapest and he’s from the area. And besides we need something to chat about. I know Thad has a wide network but the timing would be tight. Might promote Oden or Diebler and bring someone in to fill that spot.

    Based on the pocket city's message board Rags is neither the favorite nor in high demand...

    In case anyone has an interest, I chatted with Coach Rags this week for Field of 68.

    Honestly, I think Cooley leaving is lose lose for both schools.

    He is a great fit at Providence and that would be a huge blow to lose a long term, hometown coach to an in conference rival.

    But, I also think he is overrated because he's got a big personality and is a fun interview and won't push Georgetown back to the national power they likely think they should be.

    If you can win at oc you can win at gtown. However anyone should be able to win at gtown and I’d rather them both be good so I do agree it’s likely a net loss
