Certainly there are examples of less experienced coaches cashing in on their big break, but the weight of evidence is generally in favor of coaches with a better track record being successful. Especially in College basketball which can be a different animal entirely from the NFL. However, my guess is most coaching changes fail, so it's all relevant.
Yep--switched UCLA/Bruins in rather than USC/Trojans--both jobs filled in the same week. I wonder if your "weigh of evidence" really is true? It might be but not sure. Of course, much depends on the definitions of success and failure.
