Re: The Xavier way....should UC take note?
I lost a lot of respect for Huggins over the years, his act got real old. I don't think UC is of the mindset now to look for a savior coach, although many of the local fans probably think they need one. Fact is - they do, at least right now. Huggins and Zimpher and Goins left that program in shambles - it is a mess.
They could sure take some advice from XU though - as they've been to one more final four than UC has in the last 10+ years.
Ranking and seeds don't mean squat if you can't live up to them, or come close to resembling them post season.
UC's in serious danger of becoming a bottom feeder in the Big East, they have to know this, and it's why they don't want a Huggins' minion on the sidelines - and probably why they haven't offered Kennedy the job at this point. Why hire him when you could've just kept Huggins?
They definitely need a high profile coach to clean this mess up and get the roster and program back on track.
Personally the head coach of Murray State would be my first choice.
