A10 Coaching Changes Have Begun - 2012
« on: March 04, 2012, 12:43:03 pm »

URI - Jim Baron - Fired [size=78%]http://www2.turnto10.com/news/2012/mar/04/reports-jim-baron-fired-head-coach-uri-ar-952903/[/size]

How did he last so long? But it seemed like the fans knew it in January:

I'm sure this isn't the end of the A10 coaching changes.

Any chance that Center that they have peaces out? New coaching changes often bring about recruiting decommitts. I think we should go for Jordan Hare if he leaves. Would not mind getting a 3 Star 90 rated center!

I don't see any other A10 coaches getting fired.

I don't either.  Giannini and Kellogg were the two on the hot seat when the season began and can't see either getting dismissed after putting together very respectable seasons.

That's some serious money URI is offering up. Hurley would be a slam dunk.

For what its worth, I thought Everhart was a pretty good coach.  Dukes were abysmal before he got there, and he implemented that uptempo style and got some decent recruits. 
 
Having 3 transfers (including his best player) is what prob finished it for him.  He's actually had quite a few transfers over the years.  But, given their facilities, etc I don't know if the Dukes can do better.  We'll see.

Frosh Danny Herrera, but he spent most of season sidelined with an injury, so no surprise that he transferred and if it had been only him, Everhart would still be coach most likely.

Had 20 transfers/departures during his tenure, including the 2 A-10 ROYs - McConnell (to UVa?) and Robert Mitchell (Seton Hall).

Duquesne zeroing in on Long Island's Jim Ferry after being rebuffed (more than once!) by Akron's Keith Dambrot.  Ferry led LIU to the past two NCAA tourneys as the NEC champs.

Ponies having a hard time finding a new coach to replace Matt Doherty.  Turned by the Big Billiken, as well as Tommy Amaker (Harvard), Dan Monson (Long Beach St.), and Buzz Williams (Marquette).  Also made overtures to Josh Pastner (Memphis) as well, but no interest on his part to head to Dallas.
 
Anyway, Majerus is going to have a 2012-13 A-10 preseason favorite with Saint Louis, so not surprised he's sticking around.

Interesting piece from St. Louis Post-Dispatch sportswriter Bernie Miklasz on why Majerus may have considered SMU job:
Quote
On the other hand, Majerus is frustrated by SLU's spartan ways of traveling to road games. The Billikens take few chartered flights, which means that the players usually fly commercial and end up wasting three days to play one road game. That interferes with their classes and academic routine. The inefficient travel also disrupts the basketball regimen.
 
Majerus has also reached into his own pocket to provide a suitable salary for at least one assistant coach (Jim Crews), and he personally funded a significant portion of the cost so SLU could go on a valuable preseason exhibition tour of Canada.
 
The financial commitment by the SLU administration still isn't what it should be. It isn't easy for Majerus to get things done. Maybe he's tired of constantly having to barter with the SLU administration over small things.

Seems risky to give Majerus a big contract to rebuild a program. Though his mother lived to 84, haven't seen a picture of her, but doubt she carried weight like her son. And Helmut Kohl is still alive at 82.

Myron Medcalf lists his top 10 hires in men's hoops, which includes the "present" (#2 URI - Dan Hurley) and the "future" (#7 Tulsa - Danny Manning).  Also includes sometime Niner opponent Winthop at #5 (Pat Kelsey).
