Cantu joins Floyd's staff
IMHO the real reason Floyd was successful at USC.

The native of Paso Robles, Calif. was involved with all facets of the USC basketball program and earned particularly high marks for his efforts on the recruiting trail. While organizing all aspects of recruiting, Cantu helped the Trojans assemble signing classes that were rated no. 1 nationally in 2007 (ESPN/Hoop Scoop), no. 7 in 2008 (Hoop Scoop), no. 5 in 2009 (Hoop Scoop) and no. 6 in 2010 (MaxPreps). USC also had a top-10 class in 2006 and a top-20 group in 2005, according to Hoop Scoop rankings.

RE: Cantu joins Floyd's staff
I never said Floyd wouldn't win. I have always said that Floyd is a good coach and that he will be successful at UTEP. What I have said however is that his style of coaching and his attitude will ultimately wear thin at UTEP.

Mark my words. He will either get out while the gettin is good or people will start to turn on him. I'm just glad to say I was the first.

His only saving grace is that the conference has took a turn for the worst.

Duh!
How else do coaches leave any college? They either don't perform, or a big school lures them away after success. OBVIOUSLY.

There is another way. They sometimes leave knowing that NCAA violations are looming or they are fired because an investigation has already started.

Something Floyd is very familiar with.

Eustachy, a native of Alameda, Calif., and a 1979 graduate of Long Beach State University, has garnered numerous coaching honors throughout his illustrious career. In addition to his two National Coach of the Year nods in 2000, he was also the 2001 runner-up for the AP's top coaching honor.

He was twice named the Big West and Big 12 Coach of the Year during stints at Utah State (1995 and 1998) and Iowa State (2000 and 2001), respectively, and joins the Rams after leading his Southern Miss Golden Eagles' squad to 25 wins in 2011-12 to earn the 2012 Conference USA Coach of the Year award. Eustachy is also the reigning National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) District 11 Coach of the Year.

Eustachy's coaching career began at the age of 22 as an assistant coach at Citrus (Calif.) College, where he played two seasons after a standout prep career at Arcadia High School. From 1981-90 Eustachy honed his skills as an assistant at Division I schools Mississippi State (1981-86), Idaho (1986-87), Utah (1987-89) and Ball State (1989-90) before taking his first head coaching job at Idaho (1990-93).

Following his stint at Idaho, Eustachy spent five seasons (1993-98) as the head coach at Utah State (1993-98). He then took over for close friend Tim Floyd at Iowa State, spending five seasons in Ames, Iowa, and leading the Cyclones to the Elite Eight in the 2000 NCAA tournament.

Check the timeline genius. He was an assistant at Idaho and a successor at Iowa State.

History teacher he says! Bwahaha

RE: Cantu joins Floyd's staff
My bad. I thought Eustachy was his assistant at Iowa St. as well. I knew he was his assistant at Idaho and also knew that Eustachy took over at Iowa St.

From what I can tell, Floyd took over a team at Iowa that had 3 20 point per game juniors. He took that team to the Big Dance.

Two years later, his team went 12-18.
