You'd think they would promote from within for a year. Unless they have their sights set on someone in the NBA.I imagine he's stepping down due to health reasons. If that's it, it will be a very attractive opening but don't know who they'd attract at this point in the offseason.
Miller would be a ridiculous pipe dream were it not for his Ohio connections, but I agree he's not leaving Arizona. Smart is almost certainly no because Texas can match whatever OSU throws at him. I could see any of the rest being legitimately interested.Mack and maybe Holtmann seem the only reasonable names on that list.
Yep, I don't know why the head coaches for Arizona and Texas would be on anyone's list. Lateral move at best if not a downgrade.Miller would be a ridiculous pipe dream were it not for his Ohio connections, but I agree he's not leaving Arizona.

Looks like he was canned due to performance (which health is part of), but he is not stepping down due to his choiceHis health is so bad he can not put on his own shoe. 3 ELITE 8's, 2 final 4's , 8 conference titles in 17 years of coaching. One losing Big 10 season in 13 years ! Only Knight, Izzo AND Ryan have out performed that conference for excellence. If anyone does that at Minnesota they will not get a statue or a court, they would get a whole arena. Just think of one coach winning 4 Big 10 titles here !
Didn't know he was from Cincinnati. I agree he has had a lot of success there. As for Matta still really young. Maybe a year or two off to get healthy will do wonders. Hopefully he comes back outside of the Big TenSuppose it's always possible. He just has a really good stretch of success going at Cincy now, and grew up in Cincy. Call it a gut vibe, I guess.
