He took Dayton to the NCAA, rebuilt that program. He did good things at Clemson, had them in upper tier of the ACC. So did produce. Probably could have stayed at Clemson for a long time , but Depaul threw big money at him, plus the lure of a big city was too much to turn down. DePaul, at that point, though, had too many liabilities to allow any coach to win there, and he resigned after that became obvious.

I would say he had Success at Radford, ODU and Dayton, but that he got out of Dayton before the wheels feel off for Clemson. He never really got Clemson off the ground, but it is Clemson basketball so most anything is an improvement. He went on to DePaul and I have no idea if he has been able to do anything to revive that program.

See my previous post. He left DePaul about four years ago, no coaching gigs since then than I'm aware of.
