Who Should Replace Tubby?
At some point, Tubby will leave Memphis (hopefully after a successful run).

Who should replace Tubby?

I prefer an energetic and media savvy coach who loves and excels at recruiting and program promotion, possesses the willingness to mitigate his weaknesses, and do everything within the rules that advance winning. He (IMO) should run a defense and offense best fitting most Memphis area recruits (i.e., running and pressing like Louisville)

Depends on how Tubby leaves and when

But you've gotta reach out to Penny

Hate to ask it about Penny but does he have what it takes to lead a high D1 program? Leading a program like ours, or at least what we want to get back to, requires a lot more than on-the-court coaching. Recruiting, salesmanship, organizational skills, and an ability to command respect from your players come to mind as skills needed to be successful. I would really like to see him as an assistant coach on our team before being seriously considered.

RE: Who Should Replace Tubby?
It depends on when we're replacing him. The list of "good" candidates changes annually. Candidates get hired away, sign extensions, or have rough seasons. A few years ago, Shaka Smart was on the top of everyone's list. I still believe Shaka can be a good coach, but his stock has dropped significantly.

I do believe we need someone that can market and sell the program. We have to get the fan base excited again. We also need to get recruits excited about the Memphis program again. 2008 was a loooooong time ago. Many recruits aren't as familiar with Memphis as we'd like to think they are.

Sounds like the guy we ran off.

I guess, but I've found that premature things are normally not good.
