Beard sounds like a real whore. I'd hate to play for that guy or have him coaching any team I support.





I thought Lutz did basically the same thing on a smaller level to come to Charlotte.

AJC.com: [/size]Updated: Georgia Tech makes Josh Pastner hire official[/size]


If you were concerned about Price to Ga. Tech then you will revisit this fear again in the near future. Pastner is a world class douche. He gets along with no one. His players even openly disliked him. As far as recruiting, he is going from Memphis where the student athlete is a total different animal than what he will encounter at GT so I do not know how that is an advantage for him.  I have never encountered anyone that had anything good to say about him and he is also the reigning world champ for the worst hair piece/ toupee in all of college sports. With all of that Mempiss money looks like he could get a transplant or at least a presentable weave.

Valid point.

Lutz actually discussed with Gardner-Webb when he accepted the job that if his alma mater came calling he would leave to take the job.  Nobody thought it would happen immediately, but the gentlemen had an understanding, so it was not the same.
Hey 49er undergrads, you are bigger than UNC-CH.  Start acting like it!

Beard didn't jump ship from UNLV to go to a random school though, he spent a decade at Texas Tech previously and has kids that live near Lubbock. Hard to blame the guy.

Have to agree.  Just really bad timing when you're dream job becomes available so soon after accepting another position.

And in spite of UNLV's president proclaming Beard's move was unprecedented, just not true.  The list includes Larry Brown (Davidson), Bobby Cremins (South Carolina), Dana Altman (Arkansas), Gregg Marshall (College of Charleston), Rick Majerus (USC), Billy Donovan (Orlando Magic), and, of course, Bobby Lutz (Gardner-Webb).

Latest dirt...


UNC - University of Northern Colorado, that is - parts way with B.J. Hill as the program under NCAA investigation for violations.


And NC State has hired UT Martin head coach Heath Schroyer as an assistant after Joe Dooley decided to stay at Florida Gulf Coast.

New Mexico State promotes assistant Paul Weir to replace Marvin Menzies, who left Las Cruces for UNLV.  And in a twist, former UNLV coach Dave Rice is now an assistant at in-state rival Nevada.

From Matt Norlander:
Quote
Rick Stansbury, Western Kentucky


Left: Assistant coach at Texas A&M


Career record: 293-165


NCAA Tournament record: 4-6


Regular-season conference championships: 1


Evaluation: Two coaches told me about a month ago that Stansbury would have WKU in the NCAA tournament within two years. He's that good and feared. Remember that he retired from the Mississippi State job a few years back. He was rejuvenated, spent time with Texas A&M the past two seasons and helped that program become a top-tier SEC outfit. WKU is a low-key really nice job. Stansbury is 56. I can see him winning big there for a decade and retiring.

This is pretty amazing:


The coach who is most fortunate to land his new job is ... Josh Pastner (Georgia Tech)[/b][/font]
[/color]GARY PARRISH: It's no secret that Pastner was on the outs at Memphis with his administration and fans. The only thing saving him was a $10.6 million buyout that Memphis simply could not afford to pay. But the administration, I'm told, did advise Pastner to pursue other jobs or risk a humiliating midseason termination next season. So he did. And after several candidates rejected Georgia Tech, Pastner got an offer. And Memphis actually agreed to pay him to go to Georgia Tech.
[/color]That's a fact.
According to the contract, Pastner was obligated to pay Memphis $500,000 if he left for another job. But Memphis so wanted to make sure he left for Georgia Tech that it basically said, "Hey, forget about that $500,000 you owe us. Instead, we'll pay you $1.255 million if you please accept a six-year contract worth $11 million from Georgia Tech."[/color]Amazing, right?
[/color]Memphis really paid Pastner $1.255 million it did not owe him just to make sure he'd accept a contract worth $11 million from Georgia Tech. So now he's guaranteed to make more money than Memphis owed him if he'd stayed at Memphis. And he now has a fresh start in a career that had taken a bad turn. Seriously, who's more fortunate than that?
If your not a 49er club member, NOW is the time to join.

If we want our conference to not suck at Basketball, WKU is one of the schools that needs to be a NIT/NCAA team every year. They have the history, resources and ability to do that.

Good on them hiring him.

Also the type that can get them into a probation situation if he doesn't change his ways. Had some shady dealings with AAU coaches when he was at MSU and he was suspended when he was Austin Peay due to an investigation and later resigned.

Carousel starting to wind down as Delaware hires Notre Dame assistant and former Irish player Martin Ingelsby as the Blue Hens new coach.


That leaves Canisius with the only vacancy with the recent retirement of Jim Baron.  He won 462 games over a 29-year head coaching career at St. Francis (PA), his alma mater St. Bonaventure, Rhode Island, and finally at Canisius.  Like Ingelsby, he was a Notre Dame assistant prior to landing his first HC gig.

With Reggie Witherspoon being introduced today as the new coach of Canisius following the retirement of Jim Baron, all vacancies are now filled at the D-I level. Witherspoon returns to his hometown, where he previously spent a 13-year stint as the head coach at the University of Buffalo.

All total, there have been 52 coaching changes.

Larry Brown out at SMU after 4 seasons.  Will be replaced by assistant and head-coach-in-waiting Tim Jankovich.

He will try for another head coaching position. There is a school desperate enough to hire him.

WKU's Rick Stansbury tied for 3rd in this poll of 108 coaches by Matt Norlander, with Ron Ehsan of UAB picking up a couple of votes.

MY TAKEAWAY

Stansbury is already landing five-star prospects at Western Kentucky, so that speaks for itself. A couple of coaches I spoke with said he'll be running Conference USA by 2018. Some think that's already happening, in fact.

Technically guess this could be filed under "2017 Coaching Carousel" since we're in the 2016-17 academic year, but will put it here.  GW looking for a new coach.
