    Default What has to happen for Pitino to keep his job?

    Giving you a bunch of options ranging from national champs to him being the coach regardless. Curious to see what the general sentiment is on him, aside from a lot of people wanting him replaced.

    I agree with JJMD, unless they find a Whalen/Fleck/Motzko caliber hire.

    Man that’s scary. We’ll have to suffer another recruiting cycle. The ten plagues of Egypt from 4010 years ago.

    What happens if they somehow win the Big Ten tournament but lose their first game in the Big Dance? Would that four-game run be enough to keep him around?

    Well done on the descriptions of each. I especially liked this description: "Elite 8--PJ Fleck's dream round is enough for Pitino to stick around"

    Go Gophers!!

    I think making the tournament should buy him another year, but if we are one and done, his seat should stay hot.

    He would absolutely keep his job if we win the Big Ten tournament.

    I agree. Only 10 options allowed for polls and that one seems about as likely as winning the national championship but was less fun to type about.

    If we get to hang a BTT banner, I'm good with that buying hin another season.

    At this point I think he needs to make the NCAA tournament to be 100% safe. Less than that I feel like there is a chance that they make a move if they feel they can land a quality replacement.

    I would say he has to make the dance and win a game.

    Too many terrible losses to terrible teams and his big ten record has been so so bad.

    Think if they make the tourney he stays. Misses but goes on an NIT run he stays. Loses out he’s gone for sure. Anywhere in between Coyle digs up his options and makes a call and only cans him if he thinks he’s got a home run (like he’s probably felt with all our previous hires). I feel like next year becomes his do or die moment with all his transfers eligible, Coffey a senior, huge recruits in the area. I’d he fails next year, he will be relegated to a long career at mid majors or as an assistant

    What has to happen? Probably a B1G tourney title, and even then I don’t think he should. Not familiar with the financials but I wonder if his contract keeps him around longer than necessary...
