Yeah, I agree. If a respected P-5 school comes calling, he could leave. But, he had many job offers at IUPUI and was there for 17 years.

I might not be remembering correctly but I thought I recalled the story on Hunter was that he wasn't getting serious offers at IUPUI which is why he moved on to Georgia State.
Yep, not remembering correctly.

I can accept that, but I'd love to hear some examples of what jobs he turned down while at IUPUI.
I'm pretty sure I was told by someone who was part of the process when he was hired that he was frustrated that, despite all his success, he wasn't getting any attention for higher-level jobs. He decided that moving to the CAA and the Atlanta market would help him get noticed.

I personally heard him say on a radio show that he had job offers throughout the years. He chose GSU because it was an urban university in a large city just like IUPUI. He stated he knows what it takes to succeed in major cities.

There might be a lucrative opening across Centennial Park just past the Coca-Cola Museum.

They cant hire another mid major coach. They have to open the checkbook. They have a half empty $45M arena.

I don't think anyone is too hot to trot on him yet. I believe there is a little skepticism about how he will do without RJ. After all in 21 seasons, he has made the dance once in '03.

The fact he played for Miami is an interesting angle, but who knows?

That is funny after what he did in 2011-12 here.But whatever. Works to our advantage. Personally I dont think he has a great desire to move anywhere especially with Levick's exit and Cobb's entrance. He realizes he has just scratched the surface of what can be built here. I found his quote after the game last Saturday interesting.

Quote:“It’s difficult to do this at the mid-major level,” a teary Georgia State coach Ron Hunter said. “I know walking through campus the importance of winning. Turner Field, all the things we are trying to do, this win is important for all those things.”

It capsulizes what we keep hearing him say in interviews in print and on the radio. He doesn't sound like someone who is looking to leave. If Levick were still around today it would all be academic. CRH, RJ and host of other folks would be running for the exit. I think now he is comfortable and with the prospect of the basketball practice facility I think he feels like he can build something here.

every coach loves where he is, and loves what the program and university is doing. lol.

you never know what underlying desires/coaching goals he has.

He may love what Ga State is doing, but maybe ever since he played at Miami, he has always wanted a shot to go back and coach. Of course he will never make that public. And that might not be the case, but nobody except for him and his wife knows.
