    This was unexpected. I don't think we are in a position to see LJ poached away, so that's good I guess...

    I think the timing precludes a poaching. However. Like the last few coaches we have lost, the timing also hurts so maybe they work they way down to LJ.

    You have to think he at least interviews for the gig, no?

    Queue board meltdown in 3-2-1...

    Interesting to say the least. Do you think LaVall is on their radar?

    I doubt LJ is on anyone’s radar at this point. If so I need to apply.

    Beilein has often railed against all the nonsense in college basketball, this shows he has had enough. I bet Jordan gets a call if nothing else, he was the lead assistant
    at Michigan.

    Just came on here to post this. Holy cow! Didn’t see that coming. Not sure how he will translate to the NBA. Think he will do ok given that his style of play is more favorable to the League than some. Doubt UM would be looking at LaVall right now, but would Beilen try to pull him up as an AC?

    I think that would be an even bigger kick in the nuts than if he were to get the Michigan job.

    He turned down Brad when offered an assistant's job in Boston back in '13. Things have change though six years later.

    Now all the Cavs need is the right ping pong ball for Zion.

    Why?

    Are they going to interview Saddi Washington and Deandre Haynes and Luke Yalich and Billy Donlon too? I know we’re used to the Butler way of doing things, where keeping it in house is imperative, but I highly doubt Michigan is just going to run through their roster of past assistants for interviews. And they’re certainly not going to target someone who’s been a head coach for 3 seasons and has one tournament appearance. It’s Michigan, not Ole Miss.

    Time to start recruiting those “shocked” recruits. Poaching time before they get a new coach. LJ isn’t going anywhere.

    The timing is bad. Not middle of July bad, but the coaching carousel is sort of done right now. LJ probably gets a call. What signees could we go after besides Zeb?

    Also, we have literally zero shreds of evidence to suggest this is a job Lavall wants.

    Zero.

    Nothing.

    He won't even get a complimentary sniff. Michigan is a strong, top ten easy program in basketball. They can have who they want and they will go after coaches that can, you know, coach and win. LJ can do neither.

    This will be a shock wave type opening though, will effect many down the food chain.

    Timing. Who are they going to consider the job? Given the timing it will have to be quick. Someone with familiarity with the program would have a leg up and school officials want to have it wrapped up so the new coach can ease the shocked recruits.

    No Michigan isn’t Butler, but the basketball program very much has that same family feel. Also remember, while LJ is a Butler alum, he was born and raised in Michigan. I don’t think he’ll get it but he at least get late a courtesy call I would think.
