I mean, isn't that kind of what every new AD has to do in their first job?

To an extent. He could have let it play out to next year and during Brannen would be much more finicially feasible. And no one would have blamed him since he didn’t hire him.

Now he has essentially forced Brannen out. If his hire doesn’t work his career is in trouble.

Now either way his career was going to be tied to it, but this just amplifies it.

No way, I think there's more to the story, but they have to restock the program with players asap. Can't wait another year, and the "for cause" issues need to be acted on promptly, not 2022.

Brannen is playing out the string for a settlement check.

This is entirely his making. Not Cunningham’s.

I think Archie Miller, Bryce Drew, and Erik Martin are my top 3 candidates at this point. Shaka Smart would have been a home run, but he's going to Marquette.

RE: UC Statement on Brannen
This is the opposite of what typically plays out. Usually when a coach is let go you worry about losing players. They have to worry about getting players with an existing coach if he had stayed.

It’s what I hope is happening. You can’t let him stay. I would have pulled the plug already.

Hire Archie Miller and you probably instantly get 3 starter quality players in the Transfer Portal and have bridges already built to just about every major Midwestern high school basketball program.

I'm guessing this doesn't even last through Monday or Tuesday of next week.

Heck, he may not make it past UCLA’s Sweet 16 game...the UC sports curse may be a thing. Lol

You may very well keep Mike Saunders as well.

I hope Bryson Spell enjoyed his time as a Bearcat.

Makes a lot of sense to me. I've made the point many times that when UC basketball was good in the 50s, 60s and 70s, they made their bones recruiting Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. This is the formula for success to getting this thing back on track on and off the court.

The reason I made my comment before about the Huggins/Cronin tree is that is how this town rolls with its sports. They love their own, whether its UC, the Reds or the Bengals. Its why we have to hear KC's name invoked every year.

I mean, I get it, but it's a timeline thing. We all know this investigation has been going on for the last week, but you can't announce an investigation then fire the guy the next day...that's why I'm saying Monday or Tuesday probably.

That's an interesting part of the story depending on how this plays out.

Smart move to impress president Pinto. Announce the investigation on Friday, fire on Monday. Makes it look like you are working over the weekend.

What will be interesting, assuming he’s gone, is if anyone of the guys in the portal come back.
