Basketball Head Coach Search Thread
It's not the end of basketball season yet. Hopefully they are focused on getting the best football coach possible, unless one has already been selected...

If we could just get rid of Ted Alexander everything would be fine.

Wood seems to prefer Dave Leito or Pete Gillen

Or, if they just gave Ted Alexander a Lifetime Contract Bobby wouldn't have lost his job and everything would forever be fine with the football and basketball teams.

Does the athletic director work under a contract or can he simply be fired without a pay out?

Even if we have to buy him out, Selig needs to go. I say we clean house and offer Jay Harris the AD position.

Jay Harris is not qualified and he’s not taking a pay cut to be AD. Sometimes, I don’t know if folks on here are joking or are completely clueless.

Check the recent history of DMCs coaching suggestions, it's gotta be tongue in cheek.

If it sounds absurd, go with it being tongue in cheek. Otherwise you look silly taking it seriously.

Ted Alexander to AD and Dave Twardzik for MBB HC. 05-stirthepot

Seriously though, we have seen this gradually coming.
College basketball is ever changing, and we have a coach mired in the 1980s; both technically and philosophically.

Kids today start playing basketball a certain way from a very young age on the playground. They then progress through rec ball, middle school, and high school.
During those years the kids learn and refine their skills, based on coaching and experience. By the time they come out of high school they are pretty much set as to their individual style and ability to function within the framework of team.
It is nothing like the way the game was played 30-40 years ago.

IMHO, we have a coach who is still in that era, and trying to place the square pegs in the round holes.
Someone posted something to the effect that we have a bunch of three star recruits who are torn down and then rebuilt, by the end of the season producing a usable (but not great) product due to the athletic talent of the players and their ability to learn.

Since few, if any of today's kids come out of HS with a ready-to-go 1980s game, we NEED is a coach who will embrace the today's skills and styles, and further hone those from the start. That would produce immediately competitive teams from the players, as well as more up-to-date schemes that would be competitive with the modern college game.

What we need is a coach who can win us the CUSA regular season title and then take the CUSA Tournament championship as well. Oh wait...

Not his biggest fan, but JJ earned himself a rebuilding year. Another year like this and it will be time to part ways, appreciate what he did, and move on. Doesn't make him a bad coach, but sometimes these things just run its course, the culture gets stale, and it is time to change.
