Coaches on the hot seat

Coaches on the hot seat


ALAN MAJOR
CHARLOTTE
The 49ers once made five NCAA tournaments in seven seasons during the Bobby Lutz era, but those days are gone now. Major went 2-14 in his first year in the Atlantic 10, 5-11 last season. He's finished 13th and 11th and is picked to finish 12th this season. If that happens, it'll be interesting to see whether the same school that fired Lutz after a fifth-place finish in the A-10 gives Major a fourth season in charge. -- Gary Parrish


And for our friends at UMASS......



TRAVIS FORD
OKLAHOMA STATE
Ford started his tenure at OSU with a pair of NCAA tournament appearances. However, the last two years have been rough -- an NIT in 2011 and a 15-18 mark last season despite having one of the nation's most heralded freshmen in Le'Bryan Nash. Ford's seat should cool with the duo of Nash and Marcus Smart. But if he doesn't get the Cowboys dancing, super-booster T. Boone Pickens could open his wallet and demand a change. -- Jeff Goodman

Re: Coaches on the hot seat

Major isn't going anywhere if we are at .500 or higher. We still play Lutz for this year and next, unless he gets a HC job. I don't see Lutz doing anything to help us out.

If Wake Forest has another bad year, we might luck up. Lutz would have to at the very least be a candidate for that job.

Re: Coaches on the hot seat

Really? You think Wake will take a run at the coach who couldn't get it done at Charlotte, figuring he just needed a better conferece and higher grade of competition to coach against?

I doubt it.

Re: Coaches on the hot seat

If Mark Schmidt can't fill a scholarship or two in the early period, we should all get to slap him once, open hand.

He's certainly not going to get fired and I like him as a coach (hopefully the new run and gun offense will better suit him and we won't have that super predictable second half swoon every game), but man alive.

I would have though Mack was on the hot seat too. With all the things I read on this board, I am surprised he is even coaching year.....

I doubt it too. He couldn't get those jobs when he was flying high as a head coach of a successful Niners team during the multi-year NCAA bids run, despite trying pretty hard to get them. But he's gotten a lot of positive press at NCstate, so his name will still come up for a lot of these jobs and NC is an area he knows well.

He'll be lucky to make it to the midpoint of the season without being canned!

I doubt it.
Lutz has always performed very well when he could recruit at a high level. He could easily do that at Wake Forest.

Lutz had the 2nd best winning percentage in CUSA when we were there back when that conference had several top 25 programs. He recruited CUSA well because he sold recruits on playing on ESPN in front of sold out home crowds against top 10 teams. He couldn't do that in the A10 and his recruiting went to shit. It's not a good way to recruit a school, but that's what he did and what he could do again at Wake.

He's very well respected in the state and has good recruiting connections (which didn't always work out recruiting to Charlotte, but that hurdle wouldn't be there at Wake Forest).

It's not every day that you can find a coach with 400 wins.

I feel like a lot of A10 fans don't realize just how much Lutz is respected in coaching circles because he didn't have much success during his tenure as an A10 coach.

Im sorry, but I'm caling shenanigans on this post. If Lutz is a good recruiter, he can recruit anywhere. Look at Dr. G at La Salle. He has way less to work with than Charlotte and yet he manages to attract some pretty good talent. Either Lutz is a good recruiter that gave up at Charlotte when they moved to the A 10, or else he's not nearly as good as you think he is.

Re: Coaches on the hot seat

Don't get me wrong, I miss Bobby Lutz, not only for the comedic value of his mustache, but for the time when I could go through the schedule and mark down a couple 'W's before the season started, knowing there would be an ill-advised technical foul, a late-game collapse or just an inability to figure out a zone defense and he would blow up a winnable game while acting like a crazed buffoon on the sideline.

And if Lutz couldn't get a top level job when he was making NCAAs by beating top 10 teams on ESPN, why would he get one once his career hit a downward spiral? Also, do you think NC State is itching to send one of its assistants to a conference rival which also happens to be in-state?

I think Bobby peaked in CUSA, as you say, but coaching years are like dog years and those days are long, long gone. Rodney White ain't walking through that door.
