    Allegedly, Chris Mack has turned down UT. Good for him.

    Brad Stevens is a simple guy. He's proven he can win at Butler. If Tom Crean can't rebuild IU, I could see Stevens landing there in 2-3 years.

    Cuonzo Martin is the new coach at Tennessee. From Missouri state.

    Who?

    With Glen Robinson, iirc. He's been paying his dues for a while. Still a bit of a surprise.

    As crazy as it may sound, I don't think that Tennessee is a step up from Xavier right now... It's tough to justify leaving a great situation like he has at Xavier for all of the uncertainty that is currently facing UT.

    It absolutely is a step up. Tennessee just has more funds and a bigger recruiting budget than X does. X is the better program right now but Tennessee has much more upside.

    Dayton is needing a new hoopmeister.


    Georgia Tech has picked Dayton coach Brian Gregory to rebuild its beleaguered basketball program, which fell on hard times after reaching the national championship game in 2004.

    Most UD fans are pretty pleased this morning.

    Tennessee has some upside but you have to factor in sanctions and the fact that Tennessee will be down for awhile. If xx has a solid year next year he will be mentioned for other opportunities.

    Tennessee may be a better program in the long run, but at this exact moment I'd rather be the coach at Xavier. Despite having all of the institutional advantages that you've outlined, the next coach at UT is going to be stuck cleaning up the mess left behind by Bruce Pearl and is likely going to have to go through a long rebuild process.

    Maybe that coach will be able to get things straightened out and turn Tennessee into a great program, but what happens if the rebuilding process doesn't go smoothly and three year later you've got boosters and fans calling for your head?

    If Chris Mack is looking to use Xavier as a stepping stone to a better gig, he can and should do better than UT.

    Mack going from XU to UT at this exact point in time would have been a HORRIBLE career move. Beyond horrible.

    UT is in for sanctions and a big rebuild and will likely be in the cellar of the SEC for at least a couple seasons...

    Mack could easily go to UT and see his stock plummet.

    Stick at X, continue to build your coaching resume, and a MUCH better opportunity will present itself.

    Cuonzo was hired to get them through probation, he'll likely be replaced with a bigger name once that task is complete.

    Sean Miller went from XU to Arizona at the beginning of a rebuilding process and damn near made the Final Four this season. Tom Crean went from the Final Four at Marquette to one of the biggest rebuilding jobs in the history of basketball at IU. Heck even Thad Matta went from XU to OSU during the period in which OSU faced some NCAA sanctions.

    The issue necessarily isn't timing its more budget, salary, and facilities. XU may be a better program than UT but they don't have as much to offer. And when you go to a rebuilding job most of the time that is worked into your salary and expectations.

    FWIW I don't think Mack leaves XU. I think he is in his destination job being from XU.

    Yeah but there's a world of difference between bringing Arizona, tOSU, and IU back to prominence and bringing Tennessee back. It's not like there's a lot of basketball history there. At least on the men's side.
