• Wes would certainly be the safest hire with his experience and his history of success. I would be SO proud to see him in the Big Chair. Besides, he gets bonus points for being a UT alum!
• Becky would bring fresh energy and a wealth of experience as both a player at every level of women's basketball and as a high-level coach. I think young women would flock to play for her, and going outside the "Lady Vol family" might not sting so much to some if the hire were a strong woman like Hammon. I would love to see what she could do with next year's team.
• Like Beck, Kara would bring the type of fresh energy the program sorely needs, and would also satisfy the unspoken requirement some may have that the hire be someone within the Lady Vol family. Unlike some others now coaching that were once associated with the Lady Vols, I feel like Kara is her own powerful force with her own ideas and ever-expanding brain and would not lean on outdated methods/ideas about what makes a team successful on the court. Many people scoff at her lack of experience, but my gut says that if there is ANYONE who could be the exception to the rule in regard to the importance of having years of experience in a job in order to get a better one, it's Kara Lawson. I honestly feel like she'd be a home run hire.
Any of these three would thrill me.
