    So the Addidas scandal has now taken down Rick Pitino, and Sean Miller... but Bill Self just got a lifetime contract. Whew...
    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.

    Probably for them to lose in the Elite 8 before they started making phone calls? (Which makes them a weekend or two too, late, but same principle. Or lack thereof.)
    Q "Why do you like Duke, you didn't even go there." A "Because my art school didn't have a basketball team."

    Wonder if Pastner will get a phone call from AZ AD. He's beloved there...
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    Yeah, I was thinking that. I wonder if they may try former Arizona player and former NBA coach Luke Walton.

    My interpretation is that he is expected to be former Kings coach at some point this season or shortly thereafter

    Youíre close, but not quite right. Steve Kerr just tweeted that heíll take the Arizona job if Brad Stevens will agree to take the Duke job as soon as Coach K retires. 😉

    I donít really see the connection between the two; Iím just passing on information. These are bizarre and mystical times, my friends.

    So the recruiting scandal surrounding Arizona assistant Book Richardson takes out his head coach Sean Miller.
    The five major NCAA violations still hang over the program's head.

    I'd think Ga Tech head coach Josh Pastner is certainly in the mix; as well as fellow Zona alums Damon Stoudamire the Pacific head coach and Miles Simon an LA Lakers assistant.

    Would Arizona give the new NCAA Champion Baylor head coach Scott Drew a call ?
    I know the timing stinks, but these big jobs don't open that often and Scott's brother Bryce is only a few hours down the road at Grand Canyon.

    It's amazing that brothers Sean and Archie Miller, once the hottest coaching candidates in the country, are now both fired from their jobs.

    Glad the cheating brothers got fired. Breaking recruiting rules finally caught up with them.

    Brothers cheating, huh? Glad they both got fired.

    Whatever happened to brothers hugging? Much better than cheating.

    According to Wikipedia " On May 19,2019 federal prosecutors played a wiretapped call from June 20,2017 between Christian Dawkins and (Book) Richardson that (Sean) Miller was paying DeAndre Ayton $10,000 a month while he was enrolled at Arizona."

    While Sean Miller certainly cheated, if Archie did he hasn't been caught yet.

    The Addidas scandal broke in 2017. Arizona fired Book Richardson in 2018. By October 2019 Richardson had already been convicted, sentenced and released.

    Seems like the Addidas scandal did not take down Sean Miller...until Arizona started missing the tournament.

    A bit tangential to the Sean Miller news, but I'm a fan of weird sports contracts.

    Sportico: Sean Miller's Firing Caps Off Unique Oil-and-Gas Longevity Bonus

    Millerís employment contract includes a series of longevity bonuses tied to the performance of a publicly traded oil-and-gas venture. The school said Wednesday that it will honor the remainder of the deal, suggesting that next year Miller will be due a payment equal to the value of nearly 30,000 fully-vested shares in MPLX LP currently held by the universityís foundation. Thatís worth $781,929 based off todayís prices, but those shares wonít be sold and the money wonít be distributed until May 2022.
    The article seems to say that there's an additional $1.25 million buyout, so a little over $2 million total. About half of that could be forfeited, depending on the results of the NCAA investigation. Still a prosperous outcome for cheating.

    Looking forward to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency bonuses in the future.

    Cronin Contract Extended and Increased

    UCLA's end-of-season run pays off for Mick Cronin:

    After a captivating run to the Final Four in his second season at UCLA, coach Mick Cronin has been rewarded with a two-year extension that will elevate his salary to $4 million per year, athletic director Martin Jarmond announced Thursday.

    The move extends Cronin's original six-year deal, set to expire in 2025, through the 2026-27 season. Cronin reportedly made $3.2 million and $3.3 million, respectively, in the first two years of a deal that was set to cap at $3.7 million in his final season.
