If he goes, arguably the best coach in program history's out the door.

It’s definitely a strange phrase he used. Had he said “farm”, nobody would have blinked.

Very unfortunate position for Creighton and, IMO, a lose/lose for them. If they determine that firing McDermott is the pathway forward, they lose arguably the best coach in program history that is still clearly loved by the players, school and community. If they keep McDermott, this will undoubtedly be used against him and the program on the recruiting trail, as many top-100 HS families on social media have already spoken out and said they would not let their son play for a coach like that.

Ultimately, the only person responsible for this predicament is McDermott and McDermott alone. The school and the basketball program are collateral damage.

Leitao’s final season at UVA (2009) was the worst that I can remember in watching the Cavaliers over the past 50 years. He was gracious, represented himself and the program well...but 10-18 was difficult on the program.


As a long-time DePaul fan, I find Leitao a likeable person. And I feel he has been very committed to the Blue Demon program. But this might be it for him in Chicago.

I have not been pleased with Miller overall. This season, the Hoosiers got a bad break with the injury loss of starting center Joey Brunk. That was a circumstance beyond Miller's control. He might get one more season. Hard to say.

He actually did well the first time at DePaul when they played at Rosemont Horizon...which is pretty much an unrecruitable venue by Big East standards. Surprised he hasn’t done well the second time, but it seems like it’s only a matter of time with his recruiting.

Since I just started grad school at DePaul I felt obligated to really invest in their M/W hoops programs this season. They generally competed (nice win over St. John's) but they seem to lack continuity far too often. Granted, DePaul dealt with some significant (relative to most programs) Covid issues this year. Even so, I don't think Leitao is the guy to get the Blue Demons back to the tournament.
