Alabama (Anthony Grant), DePaul (Oliver Purnell), George Mason (Paul Hewitt) & Charlotte (Alan Major) will be hiring new coaches.
The Georgia Tech & UNC Greensboro AD’s are taking the “it takes time” approach. Apparently, Tech is still paying Hewitt and would owe Gregory a lot if he was fired. I have no idea why Wes Miller is being retained with a four year of 45 – 73 (11-11, 9-22, 14-18 & 11-22). I guess his pedigree is just too great to ignore with the amazing jobs that have been turned in by Jason Capel, Buzz Peterson & Jeff Lebo at other UNC systems universities.03/16/2015 at 4:21 PM #80213
Remember how high Grant’s stock was at VCU? Not anymore.
The Charlotte job is interesting. Would Bobby Hurley be interested? Not a huge step up from Buffalo. What about LeVelle Moton?03/16/2015 at 4:21 PM #8021403/16/2015 at 4:28 PM #80215
Yes, GT is in a tough spot. Read an article recently insinuating they just don’t have the cash to get rid of Gregory this year.03/16/2015 at 4:43 PM #80218GowolvesParticipant
Hewitt’s agent really did a number on Georgia Tech. I would let him negotiate all contracts for me03/16/2015 at 4:53 PM #80219

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing! He should definitely boast about that on LinkedIn.03/16/2015 at 5:00 PM #80220

Gotta keep the UNC system ‘in the family’! Look at all the benefits their mafioso system has reaped upon UNC system schools!03/16/2015 at 7:40 PM #80223
Not that they had much choice, but Gregory to return.03/16/2015 at 8:38 PM #80226Alpha WolfKeymaster
If we have any assistants leave at the end of the year, does Grant come here?03/17/2015 at 9:30 AM #80247
Wonder if Wofford’s Mike Young is on anyone’s radar? Would make sense for schools like George Mason, Charlotte or Alabama to look his way – maybe even Clemson if they make the move on Brownell.
GT is screwed and their AD didn’t make it any better with that announcement. Way to kill any recruiting momentum you might have had.03/17/2015 at 10:03 AM #80249
Didn’t Clemson just extend Brownell? Why would they make a move unless they want to bring back Purnell (who I presume would also be high on GT’s radar next season if they can afford him)?03/17/2015 at 10:40 AM #80250
Yes, Brownell got a 6 year extension last year. He’s going to be there a while.
Mike Young is a heck of a coach. Started as an assistant at Wofford in 1989. Been head guy since 2002.03/17/2015 at 11:35 AM #80253
CBS updated their version last night

Out: Chuck Driesell. The son of legendary coach Lefty Driesell, Chuck struggled to establish himself at The Citadel. He had a record of 42-113 in five seasons, and only won one-quarter of his conference games in the SoCon. He never finished higher than 5th in his division in the split-league, and ended his run with an 11-19 season that saw the Bulldogs finish 7th overall in the league with the ignominious honor of having the worst defense in the entire country, according to KenPom’s adjusted defensive efficiency metric. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see the administration go in that direction, given that the school has been in the bottom-six teams nationally in that metric for each of the past three seasons.
Chuckie was a player for his dad when I was at State.03/17/2015 at 11:50 AM #80255
Greg Marshall’s name will likely come up again this off-season. He basically says that he won’t leave Wich St for a middle-of-the-pack Power Conference job:

VA, you are old ????????03/17/2015 at 1:34 PM #80266
You’re just now figuring that out?03/22/2015 at 2:50 PM #82135
Rick Ray fired by Mississippi St.03/22/2015 at 3:51 PM #82166
Wondering if Miss St and Bama start a bidding war for Rick Barnes.03/22/2015 at 8:16 PM #82230WolftownVA81Participant
Great article on Marshall. Nice to know there are still some people who care about more than money.03/23/2015 at 9:02 AM #82389
SEC apparently has a new coach
More ‘exciting’ basketball!03/23/2015 at 9:23 AM #82394TexpackParticipant
Wow. Mississippi St. hiring Howland would be the equivalent of us hiring Jim Tressel. Unbelievable upgrade to SEC basketball.03/23/2015 at 10:15 AM #82408
Good for Mississippi St. That puts some pressure on Bama to make a good hire.03/23/2015 at 10:19 AM #82409
Bama could probably do better by showing replays of the past season’s football games on the jumbotron instead, and save the salary of a new coach.
Roll Damn Tide.03/23/2015 at 2:36 PM #82445
Bama to possibly make big pitch for Marshall
