That's why I call it a lazy hire...at least one of the reasons.
Most head coaches WERE assistant coaches in the beginning of their careers. He just might be the perfect fit for USC. If he is hired he gets my full support.
O....K.... Seems that Syracuse fans would be extremely sad to lose him.
If he's the perfect fit for USC, he'll be at Syracuse in two or three years when Boeheim is gone.
Could have a BB coach today according to a source close to Haden.
Tommy, Rebel, and our newest rescue Harley!
Really? did that source hint at who?
Just like going after Pastner...who is waiting for the UA job. Seems like Haden is/was chasing the names that national pundits parrot off of each other.
If the goal is to hire a young guy who is going to build the program and stay to enjoy the fruits of the labor, then go interview Enfield.
If not, then bring back Floyd, his recruiting prowess, as well as his tactical skills from a coaching POV.
I wouldn't mind Floyd coming back at all. USC/MG did him dirty.

If we're hiring Hopkins, there's no way that is getting announced the day Syracuse plays in the Sweet 16.
He's an assistant coach...they can make the announcement. Just like Northwestern announced that Duke's Chris Collins is their new head coach.
Sorry to go off topic, but that is one ugly message board.

Yeah. Some guys throwing out names. Seems like no one really has a clue who it'll be but then someone says 'I heard a whisper..' and it gains currency.
Why would Enfield leave? He's already wealthy so money won't entice him. He lives on the beach in Florida so the LA lifestyle won't entice him. He's a fuckin hero now and has zero motivation to go anywhere else.
Do some research.
Faced with a story that had spiraled out of control, Florida Gulf Coast University coach Andy Enfield addressed reports of his vast wealth.
Was told it wasn't one of the first tier coaches they had contacted, but should be a good hire. Not much more info then Haden was expecting news today.
Enfield's house is already on the market, and it looks like he's ready to take a loss on it.
Nice house btw.
By Laura VecseyTheres only one thing hotter than a lowly No. 15 seed plowing into the Sweet 16 of the NCAA basketball tournament. That would be the
Maybe that's not ideal, but is it really that bad for USC basketball? That would mean he did a good job recruiting, coaching and therefore winning. It would also probably mean that he proved SC can be a basketball power and we'd have the opportunity to hire an elite coach at that point. Of course we'd all like to get an elite coach now, but there's far worse than this scenario.
Edit: Ok, nevermind. It sounds like it's someone else now.

Maybe it's been mentioned but looks like Texas Tech is close to signing Tubby Smith,
someone mentioned that he's too old, but Texas Tech lately seems to landing decent coaches and come in a are successful.
If that is the case.... Gregg Marshall and Buzz Williams might be possibilities.
Syracuse will probably make a run at him, yet does he really want to follow his mentor? Plus, he from SCal and surfs supposedly. I don't think that it is a given that a guy will return to his alma mater. USC can pay the same as Syracuse. Quality of life will be a lot better in LA.

Or Dave Rice from UNLV...at least that's what CBS Sports is suggesting/speculating.
What coaching jobs are open? Who was fired and who are the potential candidates? Who has been hired and did the athletic director make the right move? You've got questions and we've got answers as we track this year's college basketball coaching carousel.
