It's on Twitter. Unfortunately I don't know how to post pics on this site. It's there for everyone too see. I'm sure Lopesup has it as his home screen on his phone.

GCU will probably not be as good next season as they were this season. Losing Russell is going to hurt. Braun is going to need to stay healthy. If he goes down, GCU season is over.

Could just look at my pic here, too. That isn't even the most embarassing pic of Majerle in the interwebs. There was a photo shoot he did for a calendar branded for his defunct "Thunder9" clothing line that is pretty cringe worthy.

Nothing, however, is more embaassing/awesome than the music video he did with Celine Dion. Classic early 90s glory right there.

I love you gleadley. Matter of fact, the GCU posters on this site are top notch knowledgeable basketball fans. Thank you so much for posting these pics and video! I am personally going to make posters of all those stupid pics of Majerle and give them to the student section next year! Thank you so much!

It would be funny. I remember Utah State doing that to Reggie Theus.

I'm not really surprised. There were rumors after last season that UNLV was targeting Majerle after the 27 win season.

He is getting paid well to coach at GCU and has talked in the past about his goals being to lead GCU to an NCAA tournament. He is not leaving for Illinois. He is not leaving for a state that is in the middle of a two year state budget crisis. There will be much better opportunities for Majerle in the future if he wants them.

the state of Illinois has a budget crisis. U of Illinois is rolling in the cash...


Illinois can spend up to $5/million a year to get the coach they want...

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/col...olumn.html
The reality is a program with tradition that just invested $170 million to renovate its home arena and signed a top-10 national recruiting class will intrigue the most comfortable of college coaches. Whitman left no doubt he can offer a competitive compensation package — and the six-year, $21 million contract he gave football coach Lovie Smith made the promise believable. One source familiar with the Illinois board of trustees discussions said Whitman could have as much as $25 million to spend.

There is really no point to these rumors because Majerle was never going to leave. Illinois athletics gets the Big Ten revenue and that allows that money will not be the reason a coach does not come to Illinois. They could pay $4 million per season for a Head Basketball Coach.

The Illinois state budget crisis does not help attract anyone to a university job at any public university in Illinois. The University of Illinois system has eliminated about 500 jobs during this crisis.
http://www.news-gazette.com/news/local/2...onths.html

Majerle made $30 million as an NBA player and he has businesses and family in Phoenix. Majerle makes $1.5 million at GCU. He is not really hurting financially, so the attraction of Illinois based on money alone does not really make sense. The tradition of Illinois has produced 3 NCAA Tournament appearances in the past 10 seasons. So any coach hired has a rebuilding job in a tough conference at a time when the state is in a two year budget crisis. The job openings at Cal and UW look more attractive than that.

GCU is one of the fastest growing universities in the country and they will be eligible for the NCAA Tourney next season. They have plenty of money. That looks like a good place to be at this time. I find it funny that because Majerle grew up in the Midwest, he would want to go back. He has spent most of his last 30 years in Phoenix. He has called his dream job Head Coach of the Phoenix Suns. He has said that he "loves living in Phoenix." That is why this was a ridiculous rumor from the start.

Welp, looks like Illinois has found their new man.
