Jerome Tang
KT Turner
oscar Pearl

Interesting names.  Don't think Pearl is a realistic possibility, nor do I think gene would even consider him. 

The other two are intriguing.  I have incredibly LHBBC iq.  Has anyone even offered Tang?  How has he skated by for 19 years and no one gives him a sniff. 

KT Turner...ill be honest....didn't even know he was from Manhattan (again, LHBBC iq).  Both Tang and Turner seem like solid choices to me.

I do know one thing.....gene won't hire anyone mentioned in this thread.  I want oscar gone, but then I come back to the question of who are we gonna hire, and then I just kinda give up.  Also sad that Southwell and Kelly will be gone as well.

I just threw in oscar for Chingon.  I think Gene will go for a SLTH like he did for football. I haven’t kept up with the current top tier SLTH contenders so truthfully have no idea who they might be.

Klieman was an out of the box hire that was risky as hell and widely questioned, not a SLTH. Neal Brown and Matt Wells were SLTH's, not Klieman.

I still think he'll hire a SLTH for basketball because who cares, it's basketball.

It's very hard not to hire a SLTH in basketball, particularly in a power conference.
Look at this list, they're all SLTHs other than Beard, English, and Mike Woodson.

I was having this convo on twitter but listening to KC sports talk, I get the impression that the powers that be there are giving the impression they don't think he's ready.

I hope so.  I wish he had more coaching experience but am OK with him learning a bit on the job.  I also would expect that his energy recruiting could cover some coaching inexperience in the meantime.

Gary Parish talks about this all the time, that either you can do the job or you can't. He was a high level assistant for 6 years before getting the George Mason job, I can't imagine he needs much more seasoning.

I thought he was younger than that but it probably has more to do with me not realizing how old I am.

The problem with hiring Kim English if Missouri doesn't, is they'll always be there when the next coach doesn't work out.

If a guy is good enough that other schools want him, that’s still good for us.

We aren’t a destination job so that’s true for anyone worth a damn.

It was pretty bold to hire Bob Huggins, and then Frank.  And it was awesome.  Those hire'rs aren't around anymore.

Agreed. We shouldn't hire anyone that someone else might want someday.

Darian DeVries
Nico Medved
Kim English

I've seen Nico Medved mentioned several times.  As far as I can tell he is barely above .500 overall and has never sniffed an NCAA tournament.  What's so great about this guy?

The thing that sucks about Kim English to Missouri is that Missouri seemingly has to hire a new coach every 2-3 years.  Not that it should be a deterrent to hiring him.

I don't think it would be a given he would leave us for Missouri.  It would be a lateral move and if he wants to coach at a blue blood, it's unnecessary.  Alma Mater jobs are best for coaches approaching retirement, not 30-somethings with more upside.

This is pretty much what I was getting at.

As a university,  the Mizzou Kim English played at is a far cry from the Mizzou today.
