I just read an article that predicted more coaches would be safe this off season with college president's and AD's focusing on other things. Seems very plausible.So, we can all agree there are MUCH bigger issues in the world. In fact, every post from here on out should come with an implied disclaimer that we are all aware of how societally-insignificant any college sports issue is compared to the world at large.
That said, I'm curious to see if the Carousel slows down at all during this time period. Do schools that might be on the fence hold tight because of all the uncertainty? Or failing that, hire from within when making a change? Do coaches stay put, unwilling to uproot their lives/families during this window and instead opting for the security of home?
Agreed. Plus I'm sure some coaches will inevitably stay put on account of not having tourney runs that increase their exposure etc.I just read an article that predicted more coaches would be safe this off season with college president's and AD's focusing on other things. Seems very plausible.
Normally today would be a big day for the Carousel. But that is in a normal year. Obviously, there COVID-19 situation makes this year different, and I think will extend the period of time during which teams make changes. A few of the bigger reasons (in my mind) why...UNC Wilmington hired a former assistant who followed Keatts to NC State. Bryce Drew is the guy at Grand Canyon...my feeling is if we don't get another wave of openings by Friday, teams that want to get rid of their coach are just going to punt to next year because of the pandemic...which could lead to some truly awful basketball teams next year.
