Archie was the number one target from the week before Gott was fired. There was communication between Archie’ people and NC State for sometime. I think it is obvious that apparently Mr Miller was not interested in taking the job. Once that was clear DY moved quickly and in my opinion landed a very good coach. Keatts took a program that finished 9-23 the year before and was co-champion for the regular season. He followed that with two more regular season championships plus two more conf tournament championships. This year he won the conf. tournament by beating the second place team Coll of Charleston in the championship game that happened to be played in their arena. When he was the assoc. head coach at Louisville, they went to two final 4’s plus won a national championship. In 2013 he was voted the #3 best recruiter(asst.coaches) in the nation. He is connected as anyone in college basketball.
