Coyle is going to hire a black coach. I believe that the coach/manager of every college and professional sports team in this market is white and it's time for that to change. I assume that there will be excellent black candidates (not retreads) who will want this job and one of them will be hired.Nearly every single name here has one thing in common: Dutcher, Smith, Medved, Miles, Alexander, Miller, Kelsey, Stansbury, DeVries, Musselman, Beilein, Matta, etc. They are all white.
Coyle's hires at the U: Motzko, Fleck, Whalen, and giving Pitino an extension (thus endorsing him as "his guy") - again, all white. And while I hope and expect we will hire the best coach no matter their skin color, Coyle absolutely will look at black candidates as well. And if all things are equal, he will hire a black candidate.
I'm not sure if that will be Damon Stoudamire, Kelvin Sampson (!!!), a top assistant, etc. but we need to broaden our perspective.
