NC State to fire Gottfried at end of season
Still have an odd feeling about Keatts related to this.

Probably wrong, but it will be interesting to see who ends up there.

UNCW is a better job than NC State.

RE: NC State to fire Gottfired at end of season
The school Dayton people feared the most when talk of Archie leaving has always been State. Both he and his wife are alums, her parents still live in Salisbury which could be a draw. Archie is making $900000 at Dayton and they cannot do a lot more than that. Too, people recognize while Dayton is a terrific bball town the A-10 is not what it used to be, it will likely be a two bid league this year.
My brother is a close friend with HOF coach Don Donoher. Archie invites him to practice, he only goes occasionally, but Don says he is a heck of a coach. In addition, he says Miller runs the toughest practices he has ever witnessed, that is quite a statement coming from someone who was an assistant to one Robert Knight.

That's silly. It has challenges but it has major money and a great fan base.

Jimmy's a better AD than Yow. I'll give you that.

Not sure how Nation is defining better. There is a better chance to win, and win consistently at UNCW, but in terms of facilities, pay and prestige, State is ahead of UNCW.

Archie to State makes a lot of sense, but if IU fires Crean, would he rather coach at NCSU or IU? Izzo and Beilein aren't nearly as intimidating as K, Williams, Pitino, Bennett, Boeheim, Buzz, Hamilton, etc. Plus, IU has tradition.

Archie only makes sense because he went there. He's probably the hottest young coach available right now, and NCSU is far from the most attractive position. Keatts to NCSU still makes zero sense to me.

Keatts is young and has a young family.

If the price is right I don't blame him

RE: NC State to fire Gottfired at end of season
NCSU is a different situation for sure but the potential to compete in the best conference in the country is something that any young coach would have to consider. Keatts is a east coast guy with ties to NC and Va that would serve him well there. Gottfried is getting 2 mil a year from what I hear and if they offer a young coach 4-5 years at 2 million that is pretty hard to walk away from. The challenge there could also be a deal breaker or maker but if a guy likes the thought of making NCSU a top program again it is place with the means to make it happen. I think the first pick has to be Miller but after that who knows.

Mine is a hunch and nothing more. Archie Miller is for sure THE guy at this point, and all arrows point in his direction. NCSU could get Keatts for 1.5 million easily and he'd jump if offered.

I think he could be intriguing because of his recruiting connections and the fact he'd bring a pressing, running, exciting brand of Louisville basketball to State. A style that could actually compete with Duke and Carolina.

Hey, I had a hunch Andre Washington would come to UNCW as well. But, turns out he sucks and Keatts didn't want him.

This is precisely State's problem. As an athletic department, they haven't won a revenue sport CONFERENCE championship since 1989, but their fans and admin think they should compete with Duke and Carolina. Sendek turned around the program following the Les Robinson debacle, went to 5 straight NCAA tournaments, including a S16 run in '05. He couldn't beat Carolina and Duke consistently, so the fan base withdrew from the program, and he bolted for a parallel job. Carolina and Duke are two of the all-time top 4 programs in CBB. There isn't a team that has consistently beaten Carolina or Duke, so why go to a program that has Blue Blood expectations, when they're more closely aligned to GT, WFU, UVa?

As a young coach, NCSU seems like the quickest route to an assistant's chair in 4-5 years.

I agree with you about Duke and Carolina. Too, I agree with you the State job is Miller's if he wants it. The biggest obstacle to his coming to Raleigh may be Ohio St, they will not keep Matta beyond next year, and Archie has been listed as possibly the leading candidate there as well. We all know how successful people often think, whether it is sensible thinking or not Miller would not be intimidated by the prospect facing him in NC. Keatts? We all know at some point he likely will leave, but I wonder if his first move may be an intermediate one to a school such as Dayton.
