    Unrealistic candidates but you never know:
    Mike Brey
    Shaka Smart
    Beard at TT
    I will revise this slightly:
    1. Musselman
    2. Miles
    3. Howland
    4. Tad Boyle
    5. Nate Oats

    The more I read Hoiberg makes me nervous as I don't know if he can win without the sketchy transfers and I don't know if he would stay more than 5 years before going back to the NBA.

    This is MN sports...we discuss guys leaving for bigger schools all the time and the fact is they all end up sucking and getting canned.

    Any up and coming hot-shot assistants that are ready for a head coaching gig?

    What was so sketchy about his transfers? That just seems to be a meme without a lot of factual basis. Heck, he's the only post-high school coach who managed to keep Royce White together for a full productive season.

    Hoiberg's recruiting style at Iowa State actually made a lot of sense for one trying to make a stagnant program competitive quickly.

    Is it the players or the coach? If a different coach had this exact same roster, do you think the results would be the same?

    No.

    I don't think he is placing the players in a system they can perform at their best.

    There are at least a dozen coaches that would win big with this roster. I have seen them do it with far less talent.

    So yes, he was a head coach when hired here.

    Good talk.

    Normally I agree. No one has ditched us in FB or Men's basketball since Holtz. But in Hoibergs case it seems legit. Not that he will leave for a better college job. But that he's still not sure which league he wants to be in.

    Maybe sketchy is the wrong word, but weren't several of them marginal academically?

    If he wanted to move on from his hometown of Ames for the NBA you have to wonder if Mpls is enough of a draw to prevent him from doing it again.
