    Nate Oats at Alabama might not be a bad choice if we go outside the family, except for the fact that Oats insulted K in December, which was dumb, if nothing else.

    Setting aside what Nate Oats said, would anyone else find it weird that Duke hired a coach who went from coaching Buffalo to a power conference team, and it wasn't Bobby Hurley?

    Yes, but Tom Harp just didn't work out real well.

    (West Point ain't really upstate).

    Oh... yeah... forgot that one... from Cornell, right? But they were trying to de-emphasize then... I think they'll have deeper pockets this time too.

    I'm just going to throw it out there ,but it would be hard replacing Coach K with the most successful of coaches.But to replace colleges all time wins leader .HEllo!I love K's former players but I don't see any of them being able to step in.Its going to have to be someone that has a proven track record and thats outside the Duke program.I would go with Brad Stevens. I hope K still has 3 + more years left in him.

    Brad Stevens?!?! Gosh, matt, before your comment I donít think anyone had suggested Stevens as a potential successor to Coach K. I think you might be on to something, pal!! 👍🏻 😉

    Be gentle! It's been in the works for years. The Celtics are keeping him off the college scene for us. Why do you think the Pagliuca brothers played at Duke? All part of the plan!

    I thought It was mere coincidence that one of the Pagliuca brothers is on the AD Search Committee.

    I'm guessing your supposition is that it's because of the connection to the bball team? It's because Steve Pagliuca is a member of the board of trustees.

    I guess you can't let slip who the illuminati have lined up for our next AD?

    oh i had forgotten that! In either case, one would expect several board members to be involved with such a high-profile hire, and the ones involved with athletics, such as Borders and Pagliuca make great sense. Mildly surprised Silver isn't on it as well.

    I really like Stevens if it come down to him replacing Coach K.We are really spoiled by coach Ks success.Id hate to see a loved ex player get the job and go 8-20 their first and second year,like Dawkins,Hurley or Capel.

    If Stevens isnít available, maybe Spoelstra or Kerr are. Iíd add Pop to the list, but heís a little long in the tooth to succeed K.

    I would judge Adam Silver has a conflict of interest, given that the NBA competes with college athletics for the sports dollar.

    I guess we'll see how assertive the new AD turns out to be. I could easily imagine a scenario in which a somewhat tentative AD nudges the choice over to K (who will no doubt have massive input regardless of AD).
