[quote]I could see UH matching offers though. They have made huge recent investments in BBall. Hard to see them willing to give up their coach[/quote] According to what I can find he’s being paid 1.4 million. They can’t realistically outbid us....

Sampson would be a fantastic hire NCAA issues aside. He’s a great coach whose past NCAA issues aren’t recent and wouldn’t completely scare away a recruit’s parents like another name that’s been mentioned. ...

So Jeff Goodman put an article out an hour ago about Alabama candidates and who he thinks ends up with the job. His answer was Steve Prohm. Just now he tweeted this... [quote]Despite the fact that Iowa State coach Steve Prohm is an Alabama alum, I fully expect him to remain with the Cyclones and wo...

[quote]Who do yall think we lose off the team/Recruting Class?[/quote] Ingram may be the only contributor from last season leaving. Giddens is probably the next likeliest, but he’d be dumb to. He’s in line for some huge minutes (or at least as many minutes as his fouling allows). He’s the only bi...

Didn’t we consult with Pitino during the last hiring process? So even if it’s true he was spotted there, do y’all think we were just picking his brain?...

[quote]Says $3.9M[/quote] He was paid 4 million at UF. I doubt he’s making less, but I could be wrong. He was scheduled to make 3.9 million at UF before he left. Pretty sure they just haven’t updated it....

[quote]So apparently Donovan is making only $3.9M a year....throw $6M at him. I honestly dont think the Thunder will fight too hard to keep him.[/quote] Pretty sure he signed a 5-year 30 million dollar deal. Maybe that was his UF salary you’re looking at?...

re: Official Basketball Coaching Search Thread - BigBird09
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to pitch a fit if Prohm gets the job, because I don’t think he’s a bad coach. I just don’t like hiring a coach based off of a stretch of 2 games. If he loses to K-State, he doesn’t even get a call....

[quote]Yeah, if Prohm wasn’t an Alabama grad then there’d be no reason to think he’d even contemplate coming. He just won the Big 12 tournament title. The Alabama connection just gives us hope that we might have a shot at him. Brannen would be the better example of a reach hire for a guy with “A...
