    That's the difference between coach that retires (K, Williams) and one who no one can quite tell if they quit or were fired.

    Yes he did point that out.

    According to this genius at SI, Duke and UNC were forced to go with inexperience.

    Kentucky had long seemed like the last bastion for a “name” hire in an era that has seen huge coaching jobs go to relatively inexperienced choices. The Louisville Cardinals, in three years, have hired one coach with no head coaching experience in Kenny Payne and another from a mid-major with no tournament wins in Pat Kelsey. The Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tar Heels were forced into internal hires in Jon Scheyer and Hubert Davis, with the jury still out on both.

    At Kentucky, good to great recruiting will probably not be enough, by itself. See Calapari, John.

    Ironically, it may be Chris Burgess. When Burgess chose Duke over BYU, then coach Roger Reid (in)famously told the 18 year old he was letting down 9 million Mormons. Great for Burgess if this comes to pass.

    Great article that covers Burgess' journey from HS to coaching at BYU.

    The DBR front page has a pretty good article about Mark Pope's press conference in Rupp Arena yesterday. It was attended by about 25,000 people, but only 20,000 made it inside. You can watch the whole thing here:



    Someone at Cats Coverage transcribed the speech if you'd rather read it.

    ESPN: Sources: Suns coach Kevin Young finalizing deal to lead BYU

    Phoenix Suns associate head coach Kevin Young is finalizing a long-term deal to become the next men's basketball coach at Brigham Young University, sources told ESPN on Tuesday.

    Young -- the highest-paid assistant in the NBA -- had been a candidate for NBA head-coaching jobs in the past two hiring cycles, but BYU landed him with a sizable commitment to lead the Cougars into their second Big 12 Conference season and beyond...

    Young, who was born in Salt Lake City, will continue working with the Suns in the playoffs, but will begin assembling a coaching staff that'll immediately start recruiting for BYU, sources said.

    This escaped my attention, but on Wednesday BYU hired back Chris Burgess from Utah, as an assistant for new head coach Kevin Young. It's an interesting side story, with both teams in the Big 12 next season.

    BYUCougars.com: Burgess Returns to BYU, Named Assistant Coach

    After coaching three seasons from 2019-2022 as an assistant at BYU, Burgess spent the past two seasons as an assistant head coach at Utah. During his time on The Hill, he helped Branden Carlson transform into one of the top centers in the Pac-12. He was a two-time All-Pac-12 First Team player under Burgess, averaging 17.0 points and 6.6 rebounds per game in 2023-24 leading the Utes to the semifinal of the NIT...

    The former No. 1 recruit in the country and McDonald’s All-American began his collegiate career at Duke before transferring to Utah to play his final two seasons under the late Rick Majerus. Following his collegiate career, he played professionally for 11 years with stops in Turkey, Australia, South Korea, Ukraine, Puerto Rico, Poland, UAE and the Philippines.
    Deseret News: Analysis: New BYU assistant Chris Burgess’ journey between red and blue worthy of rivalry documentary

    Two years after Utah was able to nearly double Burgess’ salary as an assistant under Mark Pope and lure him back to The Hill, new BYU coach Kevin Young said he is bringing the popular Californian back to BYU. He had been making upward of $265,000 annually the past two seasons at Utah and learning from Craig Smith.

    What Burgess is making in his return to Provo may never be known, as BYU is a private institution and not subject to open records requests. Whatever it is, the take here is he will be worth every penny. It also shows once again that when it comes to basketball, BYU isn’t messing around.

    “Kevin Young is the great-great-great-great-grandson of Lorenzo Young, Brigham Young’s brother.”

    The mom of one of my son's best friends is a direct descendant of Brigham Young. As she humbly notes (and I just checked on Wiki), Brigham Young had 46 children reach adulthood. So though this gave her a little bit of street cred when she was growing up in Utah (she grew up Mormon but is no longer a member of the church), it did not exactly put her in rare company.

    I'm guessing the same holds true here. Though it is kind of interesting. I'm more interested in if he is related to Ryan Young.

    Meanwhile it is always worth noting that both Brigham Young and Joseph Smith were from Vermont.

    Happy to hear he's found a new home. Brotherhood ties to the rescue
