    2018 MBB Coaching Carousel

    The men's carousel got off to a surprisingly early start with Tim Floyd announcing his retirement. Both his assistants had been HCs before, and for the foreseeable future they'll have to do since nobody is going to leave a job this early in the season to move to El Paso. Still, Floyd's is the first vacant spot of the year.

    Ditto, had totally forgotten about him until I read his retirement news. Sounds like it wasn't even school initiated; he was basically like "I'm really bad at this now, time to hang it up."

    Damn, until this news item, he was a great candidate for "Alive or dead?"

Charlotte went to the NCAA's three times and the NIT twice in Jeff's 12 years as coach.

    Less than three years ago, Charlotte tried a second time with Mark Price, who had a remarkably similar college and NBA resume to Mullins. After two years and nine games, the AD pulled the plug on the Mr. Price -- who said he was "shocked" by the move.

    Well, his 2009 Auburn team was 22-11 (10-6 in SEC) and was probably one of the last few teams to miss getting an at-large bid. They were given a #1 seed in the NIT, which typically indicates a team that came really close to making the NCAAs. Also, his last two Tennessee Tech teams dominated the Ohio Valley, winning the regular season race and seemed very likely to get NCAA bids, but they each lost in the conference tourney and did not get an at-large invite.

    Still, 20 years and only 5 post-season tournaments (2 NIT, 3 CIT) is sorta amazing.

    Lebo is only 51. I'm not sure if he was pushed out or just decided to hang it up. His Auburn contract was paying him $750k a year and I would imagine he has a few million in the bank after being a head coach for so many seasons, but 51 feels like a young age to just hang it up. Maybe he will try to get into broadcasting or something like that.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Colorado State will fire men’s basketball Larry Eustachy for violating a zero-tolerance policy implemented after previous abusive behavior toward players and staff, the Denver Post reported Thursday, citing an unidentified source with direct knowledge of the situation.

    Tech ought to be readying the guillotine for Pastner. This is turning into a disaster.

    I don’t know much about Kennedy but Parrish and Norlander discussed his plight at Ole Miss on their CBS podcast. Their take was that Kennedy did well at a very bad division 1 job and they speculated that the next coach will probably win fewer games. Good programs want to be great, average programs want to be good and they’re willing to risk being worse for a shot at being better. Jamie Dixon and Herb Sendek can relate.

    Jamie Dixon left Pitt. It wasn't an attempt by Pitt to get better. Dixon saw what talent he had at Pitt and what was waiting at TCU (his alma mater) and bolted. Pitt lost most if not all of the recruits that had signed LOIs.

    Idk what the mood was at Pitt about Dixon but Gary Parrish described a preemptive move. Being an overachieving perennial bubble team takes good coaching but isn’t appreciated long term. He knew he wasn’t going to compete for a Conference title in the ACC and consistent middling success would wear thin eventually. Buzz Peterson is in a similar spot. He’s a pretty well respected coach with mediocre results. He needs a top 10 finish type year. Then he can decide if he wants to plant his flag at VT or move on while there’s a positive buzz (pun intended) around him. Sort off like he did at Marquette.

    Buzz Peterson? Must be inside William’s sweaty shirt.
