    Word on the street is you get add Mike Lonergan's name to the Hofstra job. I guess after getting interviwed by seton hall, he's starting to draw interest.I think he'd be a home-run for Seton Hall, Mccaffery won with the same group of players. Lonergan has won a d3 national championship and put together another great program after vermont lost all those great players who beat Syracuse.

    Just heard Al Skinner getting interview with St. John's. Good fit? What about his top assistant (Duquette). Hot name in recent years who deserves a shot somewhere, maybe not as high-profile a gig as St. John's, but definitely somewhere. Any rumblings on him?

    I haven't heard much on Tony Jones this year. That might change due to Tennessee's success reaching the Sweet 16. Jones was an odd name for the BU position last year, but he's certainly on many ADs radar. If Toledo did include him in their search, I would not be surprised one bit.

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/08148259076866705078 Steve

    Why don't I see Tony Jones name mentioned, the Associate Head Coach of Tennessee for the Toledo opening. Tony was a former assistant before joining Bruce Pearl in Milwaukee, and he has many recruiting connections that make him a natural fit for the Toledo opening.

    Whoever mentioned bart lundy is spot on. He is as good as any young coach in the country.

  • Anonymous

    I heard Bruce Pearl mentioned as a candidate for the Iowa job. Is that a possibility or is it just wishful thinking.

  • Anonymous

    Steve Merfeld, Former Evansville coach. Integrity and experience. Toledo?

    All of these programs need to look to Marquette and Bart Lundy as a possible candidate. He is certainly as or more qualified than any of those mentioned above.

    You think nobody is interested Tony Shaver of William & Mary?

    the Des Moines Register mentioned Bruce Pearl as a candidate. Is that a real possibility or are they just dreaming.

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/03716145501337728000 Matt Peloquin

    Why are they on the list as POTENTIAL candidates? Because they were mentioned elsewhere, on ESPN.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/chicago/colleges/post/_/id/160/robinson-out-of-running-for-depaul

    It's does not mean they are candidates what-so-ever. But they are names that have been mentioned. They are included in the "POTENTIAL" section for that reason…to create conversation.

    And when candidates are CONFIRMED, you'll see they in that section.

  • Anonymous

    Why would this web site put Paris Parham and Dennis Gates as DePaul cadidiates. They are asst. coaches at lower level schools and will not be evn considered in the 9th pool of candidates. Some of the names you people put up must be because that guy called you, or they are your friend. Please do not make a mockery out of this web site, and try to give publicity to people.

    Indeed, he was. I'd expect SH to go after a warm and fuzzy coach after the Gonzo experiment.

    I recommend that St. John's look at the all-time winningest coach in Canadian history. He's Steve Konchalski, older brother of the high school bb guru and scout Tom Konchalski. Steve grew up in Queens and attended Molloy HS. Steve has connections overseas and through his brother Tom in the tri-state area. Hire a homeboy.

    Pat Kelsey is a self promoter, who is not qualified to be a head coach. Perhaps he will be in a couple of years but my take is never.

    Archie Miller wan not the Associate Head Coach at Ohio State. He is at Arizona, probably because his brother in the coach.

    Archie Miller is the Associate Head Coach at
    Arizona. He was the Associate Head coach at Ohio State before that. He has been successful at every position he has been at and recruited at Western Kentucky, NC State, Arizona State, Ohio State and Arizona.

  • Anonymous

    Archie Miller would be a terrible choice at UNC-Wilmngton. He has not done anything in the profession. He has not been a head coach, or even a top assistant. He has not even been in charge of recruiting at any of the schools he has been at. I wish people would know what they are talking about instead of just throwing names out there. Do your research!

    Names heard around Gardner-Webb opening on campus includes Matt Mckillop, Eddie Fogler & Dave Odom.

    The only name on the list for Oregon that MIGHT happen would be Mark Turgeon. I don't want Mark Gottfried to go back into coaching. He is too good on TV and too nice to be a coach.

    How about Archie Miller for the UNC Wilmington job?
