I'm not saying Matta would leave OSU for IU, but Indiana is a destination job.
Is that why Mike Davis is still there when they have wanted to fire him since the day he was hired? Obviously, no one has shown that much interest in going there, or he would be gone.
IU is a storied program, no doubt, but that doesn't mean you are a destination job. IU won't get established coaches to leave established programs just to coach there. I really don't think OSU is a destination program either, I just think it would be more appealing to most people.
If you want to talk about "Destination" jobs, there aren't many.
That's probably about it.
