    More coaching news.

    After a long search to replace Jim Boylen, Utah has its man. New Jersey Nets assistant coach Larry Krystkowiak has been hired by the school. Krystkowiak is also the former head coach at Montana, from 2004-06.
    Isn't Utah joining the Pac-10 next year?

    Looks like they hired Frank Haith from Miami instead:

    Frank Haith. Nice man. Would not have hired him with Monopoly money. But we'll see.

    If Missouri has really hired Frank Haith, Mike Alden better have the Explanation of the Century.

    First Mike Alden flies to Florida and gets played by Matt Painter. Now he's going to introduce a coach who is 23 games under .500 in conf.

    Miami fans dreaming of Shaka Smart can forget it. VCU is better job than Miami. Richmond fans care. Miami fans barely turn out for the Heat.

    Wonder what Seth Davis and Pat Forde think of Mark Gottfried to NC State?

    Can't find anything from Davis or Forde, but found these gems:

    DickieV Hoop thoughts -Mark Gottfried will get after it in recruiting but has a giant mt. to climb!
    "He can sell his program," said All-Star Sports recruiting analyst Bob Gibbons. "I think he's got a great eye for talent. He's very experienced, a very capable coach, he's a good teacher, he's a good motivator, and I think he's got the total package I would be looking for if I were hiring a head coach."


    "He's got a really good feel for players and he's a really good recruiter and relates really well to people," Bilas said. "I think N.C. State fans are going to like him."

    Rivals Recruiting Jerry Meyer on Gottfried Hire Reply

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    From a recruiting standpoint, what college has made the best hire so far this offseason?

    Meyer: It is a hire that came out of left field, but N.C. State's new coach Mark Gottfried is one of the best recruiters in the business. He consistently recruited some of the top-ranked prospects in the country to Alabama. None of the other new hires blow me away as far as recruiting goes, but Gottfried can likely tap into his connections in the deep South and convince some top prospects to play for him in the ACC.

    Tweet from Gregg Doyel:

    Gottfried?! Courageous, outside-the-box hire by NC State. Unusual past, but he has the moxie to go right at K, Roy

    Miami (Fla) has hired Jim Larranaga of George Mason as head coach. That's a real shocker! I never thought Larranaga would leave George Mason. Also he's 61 and you would think he wouldn't want the pressure of ACC basketball and the recruiting that goes with it.

    Jeff Goodman of FOXSports.com tweeted, "Larranga wouldn't be my 1st, 2nd, 3rd or... well, you get it -- choice. Haven't looked it up, but I'm pretty sure he's in his 60's."

    Sports Illustrated's Luke Winn tweeted, "Larranaga to Miami, if it happens, is 2011's equiv of (Oliver) Purnell to DePaul. Older coach takes on worse situation for more $$.

    A bit harsh, don't you think?

    We all know the man can coach. If he can recruit even remotely well, he'll do fine. At the very least, he should bring the program back to the point where Leonard Hamilton had it in the late 90's. Canes fans will take that in a heartbeat.

    Yes. Both Canes fans will like this. He's a very good coach. But this is a job that screams for a young, energetic type if you can't get a "name" guy.

    Actually, I think it's probably a death job and very few coaches could succeed there.

    Larranga will be gone in three years.

    If I were making the call, I would have went with an all-in risk. Orlando Antigua, UK's assistant. He isn't a proven commodity, but he is hispanic and that would work in South Beach. It's not as sexy a pick as Frank Martin, but still better than Larranga.

    I can't think of a thing about him that remotely reminds me of Leonard Hamilton. To compare those 2 kinda reminds me of those Miller Lite commercials involving another Hamilton, George, and Edgar Winter...

    Miami's AD was apparently knocked unconscious five years ago and just woke up.
