re: Official Basketball Coaching Search Thread
How would y’all feel if Byrne hired his buddy Sean Miller even with the NCAA trouble? He’s a winner, but there’s a decent chance you’re gonna get in trouble eventually.

Reason I’m asking is bc Sean Miller addressed the Zona crowd tonight and said something like “It’s been a pleasure to coach here for 10 years” and people were speculating he knows he’s gone after this year

These guys like Miller and Wade are almost certainly going to get lengthy show causes.

If not worse. We’d have a better chance of hiring Rick Pitino.

Truth. The buyout and extension was pretty stupid. I am with you though, not gonna entertain possible replacements when I know he will be back to win another 16 or 17 games next year.

I'd take Buzz over Matta, but I don't see why he'd come here.

I think guys out of coaching, mid-major coaches, or assistants are our only options.

Would y’all quit with these high profile coaches. We aren’t even a top 7 SEC coaching job in basketball.

Matta isn’t coming to Alabama. We have struck out on all hires since Wimp. Just offer Pitino and be done with it. We have shown we can’t make good hires no matter who we try and get. Pitino wants to coach and is Elite and would be no worse than Auburn hiring Pearl.

Pitino is an odd bird. He would rather take the job at Translyvania b/c of his horse farm.

Virginia Tech cares more about Basketball than we do. Williams won’t leave for Alabama.

I'd rather go after Kelvin Sampson if we're talking Pitino. Houston booster prob. spent all of this money on Dana Holgsoren.

It's a lateral move if anything. Seth Greenberg got fired and he prob. had a better record than our clown.

Yep. He raised money for Houston to upgrade facilities and would be a much better fit than Pitino.

Yeah, I think our best chance for next year is that every single coach better than Avery gets fired in the current scandal.

He flirted with the UGA job. He’s a fantasy, but he’s attainable if his health permits.

Talk about people who aren’t coming to Alabama. Our compliance department would shut that nonsense down with a quickness.
