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.
Duke wasnt a "destination job" until Coach K turned the program, the "destination jobs are imo North Carolina, Kentucky, Indiana, UCLA, Kansas, and Duke. One of the main reasons Mike Davis is still coaching at Indiana is the fact that he took them to the final game in his first full season and the atheletic department is millions in hole financially and couldnt afford to eat another contract. Plus who wants to follow a legend? Following Bob Knight at Indiana is not easy because of the way he went out, most people dont like Mike Davis just because he is not Bobby Knight.
