Has anyone thought about Kelly Harper? She has led three different programs to the NCAA tournament and is still in the tournament with a huge win over Depaul, which is more than can be said about Tennessee. It was done with one senior, one junior, and the rest freshman and sophomores. She was also named MVC coach of the year this year if I am not mistaken. She is WINNING and I don't know if she has one McDonald All American on her team, unlike Holly! Also being a part of that 3 consecutive national title team, she is well aware of what kind of work it takes to get there. I actually think she is far enough removed from the current "Pat crew" that is still at UT that it would not effect her. However, I could be wrong about that, but I hope not! Don't get me wrong I LOVED Coach Summitt, but even she would not tolerate where the program is today. Not for a second! I will be watching and pulling for Missouri State.......GO BEARS

I would like to see an African American women or men get an interview for the coaching job if decision is made to fire Holly. I think there are a lot of good candidates out there that are coaching or assistant coaches qualify to be a head coach.
I’d like for us to get the best available candidate regardless of race or religion.

Matthew Mitchell wont leave Kentucky because he's in a great situation with no pressure
Mitchell and his wife are friends and neighbors with my sister and BIL. I’ve had the opportunity to meet him a time or two and he’s a great guy. But he’s at his last job.

I’d look hard at Wes Moore of NC State.

Missouri State does not have one 5 star, most are no stars, or at best maybe a couple of two stars. This was suppose to be a rebuilding year, however, the Lady Bears had a difficult pre season schedule and took it on the chin against better D1programs. It took Missouri overtime to beat the Lady Bears, they were 3 and 1 against a ranked Drake team and Gonzaga only beat them by three points. Coach Jolly-Harper has done an outstanding job developing young under the radar talent. These ladies play like a bunch of junkyard dogs, not something you see recently with our Lady Vols.

Until someone from the “family” can show us they’ve adapted to the offensive realities of the game today and moved past the defense/rebounding 1st, 2nd, and 3rd priorities mentality of the 90s they shouldn’t even get an interview.

So why not include in the process ? And there are a lot of African American available candidates on that so call list of best available candidates.
I never said we shouldn’t. However I also don’t believe in interviewing just to save face. Find the best basketball coach you can hire and pay him or her.
