Yeah, but Crean's been to a Final Four and 3 S16s.

Final Four was due to Wade. 3 S16s with Indiana in 9 years. Like I said in the original post, Crean was given a 3 year honeymoon with IU, so 3 S16s in 6 years is good, but not good enough at a program that is probably top 8 or so:

Duke, UNC, UCLA, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville and IU. Syracuse has actually had better success than IU in the last 25 years, but Syracuse doesn't have the local HS talent that Indiana does.

Of the schools listed above, I would think pretty much any coach who only went to the S16s 50% of the time would get fired.

He recruited Wade, right?

We gonna take away Dean's title b/c of MJ?

How about Boeheim b/c of Melo?

In the 13 years after MJ left, Smith had 4 Sweet 16s, 2 Elite Eights, 3 Final Fours and 1 NCAA title. And made the tourney every year.

Boeheim had an extremely good resume before and after Melo. In his first five years after 'Melo, Boeheim had a similar post-Wade, Crean record of 1 S16, 2 NITs and 2 NCAA tournament appearaces. Alas, Boeheim had made the Final Four before Melo.

Crean had 5 seasons at Marquette post-Wade:

He NEVER got to a Sweet Sixteen at Marquette, post-Wade.

In his 5 post-Wade seasons: 2 NITs, 3 NCAAs tourneys, with a grand total of 1 post-Wade, Big Dance win. Or a 1-3 post-Wade NCAA tourney record at Marquette.

My point is this: Crean is a guy with great timing and above-average coaching skills. I very much think Indiana was right in canning him.

1 blue chip out of the last 15. At IU. In the state of INDIANA. That's a problem.
