    Binghamton is at least committed to basketball.  Brown is Ivy so the worst has got to be MVSU.  Have to play 20 road games just to raise cash to fix the gym floor.  HBCU & SWAC schools have the toughest time.  Sean Woods worked a minor miracle going 17-1 in the conference last year.  He couldnt leave soon enough.

  • EagleFan

    Of the three remaining (as far as I know) D1 basketball head coacing jobs, which one is worst?
    Mississippi Valley State

  • EagleFan

    Legitimate Lexington sports blog reports that Sean Woods of MVSU has been offered and accepted the Head Coach job at Morehead State.  Official announcement will be at 2 p.m. Monday, but story should be out of local TV news as early as tonight.

  • Jharris8857
  • EagleFan

    Local Lexington TV station (WKYT-Channel 27) reported about 2 hours ago that list for Morehead State basketball Head Coach job is down to 3 candidates:
    Wade O’Connor – Associate Head Coach under Coach  Donnie Tyndall
    Sean Woods – current Head Coach at Mississippi Valley State; and
    Matt Graves – current Associate Head Coach at Butler University under Coach Brad Stevens
    What a terrific list to choose from!  Good luck to all three; I don’t think there’s a bad choice in that group.  Go Eagles!

  • EagleFan

    You can also remove Kelly Wells and Orlando Antigua as candidates for the Morehead State job (and probaly a couple of others).  The field there has narrowed considerably, probably just three at this point.  Decision should come soon with announcement either this weekend or next week.

  • Jharris8857
  • Wells has an interview,so I guess he is a candidate. So, they are interested in a Layne, a D3 guy that averages 19 wins a year, but not Osborne who averages over 30 a year and fewer than 6 losses. GENIUS!!

  • Orlando Antigua is not a candidate for the Morehead State job. He makes more at uk than Tyndall made as HC at MSU. He will hold out for a job in a multiple bid league.

  • EagleFan

    Wilson, you’re the one whose list of candidates is “off”.  You can tell your friend “close to the situation” that he can remove Happy Osborne from his list since he was just hired as the head coach at a local Kentucky HIGH SCHOOL!  I guess 400 wins doesn’t mean what it used too, huh? Your list has exactly one coach who has a chance – Sean Woods.  
    Happy Osborne and Bruce Pearl…what are you smoking dude?

  • A school can hire him and take a penalty. Lots of coaches have had a little trouble in their past. See: uk, wku, and others. Pearl has won big time everywhere he has been. He had ut of all schools within 1 point of the Final 4.

  • PickSix

    Good.  He’s the last type of person we need at MSU.  No knock on you,Wilson, but goes to show unreliability of some so-called inside sources.

  • JeffV

    Bruce Pearl has a 2-year show cause where he can’t coach for 2 years. So he still has 1 more year left of his suspension 

  • V Tech has already been filled.They hired their former assistant James Johnson. I really thought Eddie Jordan would have been a great choice.

  • Jharris8857

    Ex Charlotte & current NC State Associate HC Bobby Lutz looks to be a prime candaidate for the Va Tech opening.

    Ex Charlotte & current NC State Associate HC Bobby Lutz looks to be a prime candaidate for the Va Tech opening.

  • Your list of candidates for Morehead State is off. More than likely, they are going to go with a guy that has head coaching experience. A friend of of mine close to the situation said these guys are in the running: John Pelphrey, Sean Woods, Happy Osborne, Kelly Wells, Bob Bolen, Dennis Felton, and Bruce Pearl. Osborne and Wells are alums with incredible non-D1 resumes. My belief is, if you can coach, you can coach no matter where you are. Osborne reached 400 wins faster than anyone in history, and Wells played at Morehead and grew up in the community. Both have won NAIA national titles. Bolen has about a 90% winning %.

     I remember when this job was a death sentence. Tyndall sure changed that.

  • Southern Miss just got a helluva coach.

  • Southern Mississippi has offered head coaching job to Donnie Tyndall of Morehead State.  No decision yet as to whether offer will be accepted.

  • Talk about a move that’s hard to understand…go from Head Coach in Missouri Valley @ Illinois State to assistant at SMU???  Some folks are just never satisfied, I guess.
