    As Irish said, it'll be Will Wade at the top of their list. After that, they'll sniff around the smaller schools around here. This is a brilliant move by Stallings. He was not liked there much and he snagged one last pay day (because he'll fail at Pitt then be done) before he was ushered out of Vandy. Smart by him, and better for Vandy.

    Rick Stansbury takes the Western Kentucky job.

    Interesting. Retreads don't usually work out for mid-majors, but every now and then it does.

    Obviously worked out for Matta, but I can't imagine that would be a good strategy for teams that want to win to pursue. (One good year could have been due to any number of factors and thus is unlikely to be a strong predictor of long term coaching success.)

    UNLV hires Chris Beard from Arkansas-Little Rock. Interesting. He's won everywhere he's coached but hasn't stayed anywhere for very long.

    UALR is a decent Sun Belt job.

    Unfortunately, much like their football program, they can't hold on to anyone as a coach. Good recruiting base though, or at least it always seems to be.

    UNLV was a lot smarter than Pitt.

    I wouldn't worry too much, he isn't going anywhere.

    There have been 42 head coach openings during the course of the year and there will be a hell of a lot more when the tourney ends and vacancies are filled.

    A 43rd coaching change just took place as Kyle Smith is leaving Columbia for San Francisco.

    Will Wade re-upped at VCU with a raise, so Vandy and others will be looking elsewhere.

    Lot of talk around here that Jeff Capel will end up at either Vanderbilt or Georgia Tech. Wouldn't surprise me if it ends up being true.

    Also Herb Sendek is back, out in Santa Clara. I always liked Herb, and am glad he's back in the game.

    Some rumors coming out of the Bluegrass State(FWIW) that Crean is talking with the Vandy search group led by Fogler.....Rumors are getting wild.

    If that IU job opened....I could see Bryce Drew being a major candidate there as he is a hot item right now. Especially if they show well tonight and win the NIT.

    I find it hard to believe that Crean would transition from IU to Vandy, but the IU fan base has been all over him for numerous years, even during this better season he had this year. That job is such a fish bowl.

    To me, the appeal of the Vanderbilt job is based on 1 perennial power in your conference (KY), especially after Donovan left FL. The SEC is trash, and yet because of football public perception has yet to catch up to the reality of how bad that conference is. If you establish any decent stability, you could be the 2nd best team every year and almost guarantee tournament appearances, which is very important to coaches in today's climate.

    There is approximately 0.0% chance Tom Cream is leaving Indiana for Vanderbilt.

    I'm not a Crean or IU fan, but Vandy is clearly a tier (or two) below IU.

    Vanderbilt and Georgia Tech have initiated contact with Valpo’s Bryce Drew, a source told @CBSSports. He’s a top-shelf candidate for both.

    Several insiders on sideline hoops are stating it is a done deal at GT. Nothing official yet. Sorry for the mis-post.
