Possible basketball coaching candidates


Just on the off chance that we are in the market for a new coach after this season...

 

Feel free to comment or add your own candidates.

 

Category 1:  Big Names

Coaches who are already well-established at other big programs.  I don’t think these guys are realistic options, but I am including them for the sake of completeness in case Yow decides to break the bank and they are interested for some reason.

 

OMG Rick Barnes!, Texas

Mike Anderson, Missouri

Jay Wright, Villanova

Jamie Dixon, Pittsburgh

Brad Stevens, Butler

Mike Montgomery, Cal

Bo Ryan, Wisconsin

Tubby Smith, Minnesota

Sean Miller, Arizona

 

Category 2:  BCS level coaches we may have a shot at

Recently both Wake and UVA have hired away the head coaches of other BCS programs, so it can be done.  The guys on this list are either (1) successful coaches at BCS programs that arguably are not as good a job as NCSU (2) recent hires at those types of BCS programs, or (3) guys who may be interested for some other reason

 

Frank Martin, Kansas State

Scott Drew, Baylor

Mark Turgeon, Texas A&M

Keno Davis, Providence

Mark Fox, Georgia

Darrin Horn, South Carolina

Bruce Pearl, Tennessee

 

Category 3:  Mid-major head coaches

 

Gregg Marshall, Wichita State (aka The People’s Champion)

Donnie Jones, Central Florida

Chris Mooney, Richmond

Blaine Taylor, Old Dominion

Randy Bennett, St. Mary’s

 

Category 4:  Other

 

I doubt we hire someone who is not currently a head coach, but a top assistant at a big program is at least a possibility.  Stanford just hired Johnny Dawkins.  Dare I say it…Chris Collins?  Could he be to State what Vic Bubas was to Duke?
