Hope he isn't recruiting. It's a dead period. Maybe spending some of that big raise on a well deserved vacation.

Sounds solid to me.

The only con I can think of is that some guys have a tough transition to college from professional because of recruiting, but Johnson strikes me as someone with the kind of personality that will do well in that regard.

If Battle lands him, then I think he would have definitely one upped his counterpart at Auburn.

The "talking heads" on CBS Sports seem very impressed by the hiring of Avery Johnson and indicated it was comparable to UKY hiring Calipari. Not being an NBA fan, I have to take their word on that.

It'd be a impressive hire.

It's no Larry Brown kind of hire, but Johnson did make it to the NBA finals once. I don't know about comparing it to Calipari because we knew he could both recruit and coach at the college level before he went to Kentucky. I'd expect him to do better than Grant, but it's easy to say stuff like that right now.

The thread is where it should be. Why can't you post this over there?

Definitely a solid hire. Doesn't mean it will be the right hire but you definitely cannot question his success in the NBA. I'm sure Avery will use that as a recruiting tool.

RE: "Alabama's option is right up the road"
After his first full season as NBA head coach (where he inherited Dirk Nowitzki) Avery Johnson:

Was either bounced in the 1st round or didn't make the playoffs at all

Fired from both the Mavericks and Nets

Has never coached/recruited at the college level

Short of package deal including Dirk Nowitzki this is a questionable hire for Alabama-Tuscaloosa
