Re: Coaching Carousel 2019

I wonder if Odom would take that. Yes, tons of money. But St Johnís hasnít won in forever. Steve Lavin made a bit of a dent but had to be ďcreativeĒ to do it.

I donít think itís a good job.

Can’t imagine that’s a job he’d want/ his dad would advise him to take.

Odom just doesn't have a long enough resume. If he had gone dancing again this season it would still be a long shot, but St. Johns needs a proven winner who can get the players to win big games.

Re: Coaching Carousel 2019

Looking a lot like Iona's Tim Cluess will be the choice for St. John's.

Cluess makes $500K at Iona -- discussions of cost of living differences between the NYC suburbs and Albany and Burlington start..... now!

One would have thought this would have been the easy way out, but St. John's is apparently incapable of what seems to be an obvious choice.

Porter Moser apparently turned down a monster contract offer from St. John's and now apparently St. John's has asked UMBC for permission to interview Ryan Odom, UMBC AD Tim Hall told Newsday in an email.

Re: Coaching Carousel 2019

That is surprising he turned down that kind of money. I wonder why Cluess isnít their guy.

From UMBC AD Tim Hall

https://twitter.com/ADTimHall/status...48256555356161

Good Evening, #RetrieverNation ...... just spoke with @Coach ryanodom and I can absolutely dispel any rumors about him being involved in the St. John’s head coach search. He is looking forward to seeing you all @UMBCEventCenter for the 2019-20 @UMBC_MBB season. @UMBCAthletics

Hereís Moserís statement, hard not to respect the guy:

ď Dear Rambler Nation,
I know there have been a lot of things swirling out there the past few days. Because I have coached and coached with some amazing young men, and because I have had the support of the University, friends, family, and the loyal Loyola fans; opportunities have arisen. I know that is part of the business, but it doesn't change the fact that I'm humbled, grateful, and grounded with what comes my way.

People in business say I'm crazy for passing up opportunities and the money. But what they don't know is the amazing young men I coach and the culture we have built. What they don't know are the amazing young men who are committed to come to Loyola and wear the Maroon and Gold. What they don't know are the people and friends that make up the Loyola community. And what they don't know is what makes me tick.

So what I do say to Rambler nation is ... let's keep building this culture and making a difference. Let's keep chasing championships. Let's do things better than we have ever done before.

With that said ... I'M ALL IN!Ē

Re: Coaching Carousel 2019

I think St. J. should be talking to Rick Pitino about now. He's been a great coach, program builder and player developer for long enough to be a completely known quantity. With Pitino as HC, losing would be history.

If he promises to be squeaky clean and the AD makes sure he gets it into the contract that scurrilous behavior means termination with no severance whatsoever, I'm all for it.

That’s a great call. Pitino would actually be a great hire there.

Cluess has a $2.5M buyout at Iona. SJU will pay a high salary, but apparently can't stomach big buyouts.

From what I've been told, Moser was offered a salary north of $2M per year. I'm assuming that is at least 5 times what Odom is making at UMBC.

Odom would have the ability to attract decent talent and decent assistants quickly, which is what St John's needs. their roster has been decimated by transfers and all of their 2019 and 2020 recruits have decommitted.

Next on the list, Yale's James Jones.

Also, reports are that Cluess was wanted by the AD, but the school's admin didn't want him. It seems that "but there are significant factions at the school reportedly opposed to his hire."

I think itís needed. We still donít have a single commit for next year. I can only imagine that the interest in Odom is part of it.
