Jerrance Howard to SMU

Before the SMU job surfaced, the 31-year-old Howard was close to joining Weber's staff at Kansas State. He also had spoken with Memphis and DePaul about jobs that are open or could become open. Howard was informed last week he wouldn't be retained on John Groce's staff at Illinois.

Instead, Howard will join Brown in Dallas. The move is attractive for several reasons. One, he can step outside the Illini bubble and expand his coaching contacts. Two, SMU figures to spend big on its new basketball staff as it prepares for a move to the Big East. Howard also aspires to be a head coach, and learning under a Hall of Famer can't hurt that cause. Brown is the only coach to win an NCAA and NBA championship.
