What about Bob Knight's all time favorite, Damon Bailey? Last time I heard about him I think he was at IUPUI. Dan DaKich not n the conversation?

Intrigue abounds.
Billy Donovan is from New York. Just sayin', Hoosier fans.

I love the part of coaching searches where fans project their weapons-grade pedantry and scorekeeping onto wildly successful people making millions and millions of dollars.

Billy Donovan's name has been tossed around lately for college openings. Just spoke to Donovan and he said he is "very, very happy in the NBA and in Oklahoma City -- and is committed there." Hasn't even finished his second season in NBA.

Really hoping IU ends up with Alford and not Marshall. I'd bet on Marshall winning a title at IU.

But, why would they need a search firm if they are already getting Donovan?

Steve Alford has been offered a 7-year, $31M contract, according to multiple people within this fluid situation. #ucla #indiana

Might as well. He could claim it was the 3rd time he saved IU basketball.

I agree. Marshall really would elevate IU.

Not saying it can't happen just that you are predicting Donovan to struggle rather than it actually being the case
Did I miss where Donovan went to the finals, won COY, and had the best record in the NBA? Because thats what Avery did with the Mavs in his first three seasons.

The analogy was to Alabama football and Nick Saban coming back to college from the Dolphins. It had nothing to do with Avery Johnson

I hear the picket fence will be a staple of his offense.

IU hires Parker search firm. The same fine firm that brought us Mike Thomas and Groce.
Not sure what this means.
