Answer:All of these men have won back to back NCAA tournament titles. However, I would venture to say that if you asked most sports fans, nobody would be able to identify Jucker at UC or Woolpert at San Francisco.
Winning back to back national championships is great, but the program has a lot of bearing on who is remembered.
So if Coach K were to move to an SEC school not named Kentucky, he would be viewed in a lesser light? I think not. Likewise, the assumption that Donovan can't achieve that status while at Florida is wrong.
Coaches make the school in basketball, not the other way around.
