    This IU coaching search was ran the same way. It was very quiet with loads of false speculation. Nobody saw Archie coming, including some people pretty close to the program.

    An offer has been made. I was not told to whom and I don't know if it's been accepted.

    Increased talk on Shaka Smart right now.... with some mention that Donovan said he wasn't interested. In other words, no one knows....

    I’m probably dead wrong but this seems awfully quick if it is LaVall. Unless, that is, LaVall was one of their top choices.

    Rumor is that Texas is willing to negotiate Shaka's buyout.

    If this is true, and @shoeevv has proven his Michigan bona fides, then I'm scared the offer is indeed out to LJ. I can't see Juwan being offered in the midst of his Timberwolves interview and I would think that they'd need more time to vet someone outside of the program like Shaka. A quick offer speaks to me at least of someone that they know and are comfortable with. I would be shocked however if LJ has been their top target all along.

    No new LaVall news.

    Brad no longer being discussed because he isn't interested (shocking I know).

    Greg Marshall not a target.

    Billy Donovan not interested but endorsed Shaka.

    Haven't read any rumors about an offer being made (other than on this thread), unless it is in reference to the Donovan-not-interested rumor.

    No private flights between Detroit area and Austin and vice versa...

    Shaka, has to be Shaka. It just makes too much sense. They get together on the buyout, Texas' base doesn't care, Shaka gets his change of scenery and another chance to prove he can run with the elites.

    What is this thing with negotiating buyouts recently? Why would a team lower the buyout? Surely Texas isn’t ready to take the money and move on from Shaka, right? Why not demand they pay the entire thing?

    It seems that everything out there is gaining momentum with Shaka...which I find odd, but hey, better for us in the short-term (hopefully also in the long-term)...but I do think that if Shaka fizzles out and LJ turns it around here, he could be the pick next time.

    From what I understand, Texas and their major donors are not happy with Shaka. The honeymoon is over and they are willing to let him go. I also think that Barnes' success at the other UT has them a bit peeved as well.

    Michigan 2019 signee Jalen Wilson just decommitted.

    To really muck things up, let's have him commit to LaVall/Butler, too and really blow our minds :)

    So, I would expect that this means that the decision has been communicated to the players/recruits, or is he just getting ahead of the game here?

    BTW...UM twitter is melting down on Shaka. Probably would have been the same on LJ.
