If Rick Pitino retires by that time, I'd say Stevens is the safest choice. Another possibility could include Kentucky if Calipari ever leaves (retirement or NBA). I thought Indiana was a likely landing spot, especially if IU fans would have ever gotten impatient with Crean, but that ship has likely sailed.
If anything, this enhances his resume. I don't see him being a successful NBA coach, but if/when he does return to the college game, he has the NBA experience and connections to sell to recruits.
