    **** you jeff Boals.

    I’m happy with this. Didn’t think it was a possibility.

    Best part is he has the cache to get a great staff around him.

    Now that we have a head coach, any thoughts on staff? Does he keep any of LJs assistants?

    Did not expect this at all, but very happy about it. Absolute best case scenario.

    Really interested to see the staff he puts together, I'd like to see Ragland stick around

    This is a home run. No other way about it. Hope his energy and health allows him to give 100%

    Also this is the coach-to-be-named-later in the Holtman trade! Net gain for Butler!

    Has BU ever hired a coach with this much experience? For so long we’ve had to bank on the up and coming guy to keep the program relevant but we now have someone with a ton of winning under his belt. When you look back at recent hires I don’t think BU had ever landed someone with a head coach resume like Thad has currently:

    Lavall - Unproven
    Holt - Won at Gardner Webb but still unproven
    Miller - Unproven
    Stevens - Unproven
    Lick- Unproven
    Thad 1.0 - Unproven
    Barry - Unproven

    The potential upside of this hire is staggering. Please, please, please, allow butler to give him the funds for a bonafide high major staff. Thad’s philosophy with recruiting at OSU was that it was on the assistants to bring guys to campus. It was then his job to close. It worked incredibly well.

    Definitely can't complain about this. It's going to be interesting to see how the rest of the staff shapes up now.

    This is awesome. Didn't think it was possible, based on how the conventional wisdom that he was done with coaching indefinitely was so baked in. The dude's a Final Four-caliber recruiter and coach and loves BU.

    And -- much to the delight/relief of many posters who have stability front of mind (me included) -- Thad's at a place in his career that makes me think it's really, really unlikely this job would ever be a "springboard" to supposed greener pastures.

    We've got our guy. Big East is on notice.
