Good read. I hope it's Mooney as well as I have him in a bet! I think it will be Smart or Mooney. The fact that Rivers could walk away after this season will be too compellling for Frank to leave.

Lot of good thoughts. I do think you've underrated Marshall and Brown a bit. Marshall has had consistent improvement each year at Wichita State and didn't take them to the tourney this year just because they didn't win the conference tournament. Their only double digit loss this year was against SDSU, and they only had four losses by more than a single basket, including a four-pointer against UConn. Also like seeing an 8-2 road record (losses to San Diego State and the MVC champ).

We've discussed Brown and have what I consider reasonable disagreement.

I'd be fine with Mooney. Not sure whether I prefer him or Marshall behind Frank and Turgeon (and Stevens, which isn't happening), but I think both would be good.

Good success recently, seems to know Xs and Os, and most importantly to the bean counters - we could probably get him for a relatively cheap price.

Lawrence Frank to UT seems to be gaining steam based on Doc Rivers' comments. Although I doubt that Frank will take the job (barring a miracle), I also don't think Chris Mooney will be our choice. I am predicting that Greg Marshall will be who we hire.

Just my two cents.

Marshall, Mooney, or Smart would be good bets. One of those three will probably get the job.

I'm a little disappointed Blaine Taylor is not getting a look.

A quick edit would do wonders. No offense intended.
Catch things like Hamilton being hung and minor typos.

Why couldn't you have used anybody else as a name?

I know. But now we are probably talking to someone nobody ever has heard of about the job.
