He was 25 and was there for 4-5 years before going to the Knicks.

Yep. 25. After only 2 years as an assistant with the Knicks, he went to Providence and had them in the Final Four within 3 years.

I'm sold. How can we make Pitino to UNCW happen?

We go after a young coach in the Pitino coaching tree....One who knows the power of a undermanned team using the press to win. One who has spent 3 years watching and learning from a Pitino protege'. We keep doing what we've been doing very successfully the past 3 years, and realize age is irrelevant.

These days Pitino has the strip club in house. Great coach,not great character-buyer beware.

I still don't think that is the best option, but will support Bass if that is the route he chooses.

Sorry Mullet. I removed my comment, so this might not make sense to others without that context.

RE: Siddle Interim Head Coach
The issue I see is that Keatts has built this program up so high, that any coach stepping in would likely have a problem staying at the current level. I think that at the level it is today, we need someone with HC experience. Siddle is probably a great guy and coach, but making him HC seems to be a few years premature at this point.

I agree and i think that's fair.

RE: Siddle Interim Head Coach
The issue is keeping our players and recruits. They were sold on a particular system. If we bring a different system in, how will that affect our stable. If we can move on with whatever system without being depleted of quality players like when Brownell left I'm all for it.

Agree. And if it's someone else, his #1 priority needs to be to keep Siddle on his staff.
