May bring Mike Rhoades back home from Rice.

While he is a possibility because of his Shaka/VCU roots, IMO, it would be a hard sale to the fan base bringing in a coach that was a middle of the road finisher in Conference USA. Jamion shares those same roots and is coming off his best season as a head coach. Much easier sell.

Gary Parrish of CBS reporting that Mike Rhoades is in advanced talks with VCU to be the next head coach at VCU.

His Wikipedia page has already been changed to reflect that he has the job... not that it counts for much.

It's pretty much everywhere, now.

This is definitely turning out to be the season of the ridiculously quick search and hire for coaches.

I had the same thought. I don't know that I've ever heard of a hire being made that quickly. Kudos to them for being prepared.

I love the approach their AD takes, as well.

“I always meet with coaches after the season to determine the best ways to build their programs and put our student-athletes in the best position to reach their potential,” McLaughlin said.

“VCU Basketball is bigger than one person,” McLaughlin said. “We remain committed to ensuring that VCU Basketball remains a top-25 program nationally.”

Mike's an excellent coach and will definitely have MORE resources at his disposal, than he did at Rice.

McLaughlin's job success or failure rests solely on VCU's mens basketball program. Doesn't ultimately matter what else happens with their other sports, as long as the basketball program has continued success.

Much tougher being an AD elsewhere, like W&M, and having to focus on a lot of spinning plates. Bigger schools split sports focus up among assistant AD's.

He knows the mid-atlantic recruiting grounds as well as anyone, and certainly now knows Texas and the southeast, also. I, also, would not be surprised if his hire stops their coaching carousel for awhile, since I think he would stay, despite any bigger temptations.
