UW Milwaukee has fired Rob Jeter after 11 seasons and an overall record of 185-170 (FWIW, one victory short of the all-time wins total by a UWM coach).  Panthers were 20-13 this season, losing in the Horizon tourney to eventual league champion Green Bay.


And fellow Horizon member Wright State has parted ways with 6 year coach Billy Donlon, who also had a 20 win season (22-13).  Hmm...


Looks like 20 wins just isn't getting it done in the Horizon League.  Horizon League > CUSA?

Travis Ford out after 8 seasons at Oklahoma State, while reports are Rutgers will tab Steve Pikiell of Stony Brook as their new coach.

Meanwhile, Memphis apparently sticking with Josh Pastner although they've missed the Big Dance the past two seasons and average home attendance has fallen from 16,000 to just under 12,000.  Firing him would cost the Tigers a $10.6 million buyout. 


So far there have been 30 openings at the D-I level.

Pikiell was the Stony Brook coach.  Interesting enough he played for 2 UCONN teams early in Jim Calhoun's career with a Sweet 16 and Elite 8.  God bless him for committing basketball coach suicide.

I like the staff we have now, Pierre would be a huge get (obviously), but don't see there being any changes yet.

just a question, do you think Price is going to make it without ramping up some recruiting success, lets say at least 2 notches up from what we have seen so far?  Pierre could offer that chance.

In a one bid league, going to have to dominate with some talent, to get say a couple of bids over say a few years time..... do we have what we need in place for this??

Well, we landed 3 pretty talented Freshman late in the recruiting cycle, added a 5th year in Uchebo that was tremendous and have 4 star Quentin Jackson coming in.  The staff has recruited at what appears to be a very high level so far.   Really need to land 1 or 2 big men in addition Garvin to help bolster the post.


There is no doubt that Pierre is a top notch assistant.

I completely get where you are coming from amnesiac. Caught some heat yesterday for making these exact same points. Results so far in terms of recruiting guards have been promising, but we are going to need to carry that same level of success (ie Quentin Jackson Jr) to our big man recruiting efforts. I think the disconnect here with some of our fans is that landing 2 & 3 star level players at those positions (especially undersized ones) is going to allow us to dominate the league. That will not work. It's a recipe for mediocrity, and that's not where you wanna be with only one bid available for 14 teams.

To climb out of this quicksand, we are going to have to start recruiting like Memphis did when they dominated this league. That means regularly landing 4 star kids at multiple positions, which  is a significant step up from any of our recruiting results since our heyday in CUSA 1.0. We're not going to successfully dominate CUSA unless we do. It's a big ask, but that's what it is going to take. What we really need is to add a 4 star PF and a 4 star center to this class with QJ Jr. It's really late for that to happen, and we don't have the track record, but it didn't stop us from landing Jackson.

I feel like with a good season, this is doable. I think our biggest recruiting obstacle now is not going dancing since 2005. Go dancing or come close this season, which is where I expect us to be, and we can do that regularly. When you haven't been in the spotlight in 11 years it's hard to do. Jackson is an example,if what we are capable of But we need momentum.

We aren't Memphis. We don't have NBA facilities. We don't have a fanbase anywhere near as big.


If you're expecting Price to consistently bring in 4 star bigs before he's actually accomplished anything, you might as well go find a new team to cheer for. It's not happening.

2002, fixed and thanks for catching that error.  Not sure why I put Wagner instead of Stony Brook.  Hmm...  ???

Reports have ex-Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins taking over at UCF.

In Pitt news, former Panther Sean Miller is not interested in leaving Arizona to return to his alma mater to replace the recently departed Jamie Dixon.  Plus no interest from brother Archie Miller, who just inked an extension with Dayton through 2023.

As most already know, Brian Gregory out at Georgia Tech, while Jerod Haase leaves UAB for Stanford.

In addition, former NBA player and coach Mike Dunleavy, Sr. takes over at Tulane, Mick Cronin decides to stick with Cincinnati after visiting UNLV, Army coach Zack Spiker takes over at Drexel, and Wyoming promotes assistant Allen Edwards to replace the departed Larry Shyatt.

Pitt has hired Kevin Stallings from Vandy to a 6 year deal....a HUGE step down from Jamie Dixon.
A truly disappointing hire.

Why not? The Miller brothers are from Pittsburgh. Sean was the starting point guard there for 4 years. Pitt should be thinking highly of themselves. They've established themselves as a very respectable program since 2000.
