Brad Underwood (Stephen F. Austin/Oklahoma St.) to Illinois.

Pretty incredible hire for them. I'm not sure anyone saw that coming since he'd only been at Oklahoma State for a year.

Incredible? No.

Kind of shitty for him to leave after only 1 year at OSU.

Also, LMAO if Washington fired Romar to hire Steve fucking Lavin.

Ouch. Hopkins couldn't wait forever. He's been "coach in waiting" for literally a decade and Washington is a better job going forward anyway.

Syracuse will struggle when Boeheim does retire.

SU fans should be mad at Boehiem. Dude is basically holding the program hostage by not setting a firm retirement date.

Also Underwood is getting a huge raise going to Illinois. Can't blame him for leaving Ok St if they are going to lowball him. We would all do the same thing.

OK St set up a meeting to discuss salary. Underwood didn't show. He was already on a private jet to Champaign.

Quote :
"Money was a major factor in Underwood's decision to move on to Illinois. He took a bargain deal to sign on with the Cowboys, earning $1 million in his first season – the lowest among basketball coaches in the Big 12 – and was due a raise to $1.1 million next season, although Underwood was in negotiation with Holder to redo the contract.

Those negotiations were slow to gain traction, however, allowing Whitman to swoop in quickly and close a deal Saturday, a six-year deal that will pay him more than $3 million annually. In addition, Illinois has to pay a $3 million buyout to OSU."

damn, just read possible candidates for the Indiana and Oklahoma State job openings. Thank god our search is over. Some of the Indiana possibilities seem ludicrous, but I bet they get a good coach.

I hope this is our last coaching search for a long, long time.

Boeheim wants a 1,000 wins and won't stop until he has it.

Moton has to be a candidate at UNCW right? Didn't get the Arky State job.

he didn't get the Ark St job ^...but what I read that he turned it down, not the other way around. who knows. would think that a Sun Belt job, while a step up from MEAC, isn't exactly a big enough step up for him to leave a good thing at NCCU.

Moton has the same agent as Will Wade, so Moton to VCU is a really good fit.

Will be interesting to see what Wade can do at LSU. Will be a barometer for us to see if we fucked up by hiring Keatts over Wade. Granted winning at LSU/ in the SEC is obviously easier, but if Wade can make LSU a relevant/top-25 type program, that will be an accomplishment.

Brownell getting another year at Clemson. Read he has been there like 7 or 8 years now? Man I am old.

has it been confirmed that Wade had an interview with NC State? I saw the rumors and tweets about it, but didn't really see any concrete evidence.

If so, i wonder if that had an impact on him making the jump to LSU and the SEC as opposed to holding out for a Clemson job that could have probably been his for 2018/19.

I had read that after Keatts we knew we had our man and canceled the Wade interview. Maybe that's just spin after the fact but that's the narrative.

i don't think we ever interviewed Wade officially. there was surely contact, but not an official interview from what everybody has said. VCU lost on Thursday night on the west coast. he supposedly didn't get back to VCU till Friday afternoon. a couple hours later the news broke that we hired Keatts. sounded like we had planned to interview Wade Saturday. he was also apparently pretty open about potentially being interested in other jobs (LSU and Clemson, maybe others) so Keatts seemed a bit more eager to actually take the job. and i guess he sealed the deal with his interview.

Read today that Brownell's buyout is like $3M. I have a feeling that is a primary reason he is still employed. Definitely on thin ice. He should go and give Dabo a hand job seeing that if the football team wasn't kicking ass, he'd probably already be unemployed. Safe to say many Clemson fans likely didn't care about men's bball this year.

Gottlieb is horrible, can't wait to see his pompous ass fail if he takes that job.

If anything it's likely a marketing ploy since he just got hired by Fox as well.
