Anyone else heard of rumors about coach K being courted by Oregon State and USC?
@ DibsI have not heard of any particular rumors, but that has to be a
concern.He turned around a struggling program and with a young roster is
withing 20 points of leading the conference.I hate to say it but the NBA
and other college programs are going to be calling.
@ DibsI hadn't heard those rumors, but personally I'm not too
worried about those. I don't think Coach K will leave for another college
team. Utah is a top 20 all-time basketball program (still, despite a decade of
awfulness), so the only schools that are a bigger draw are top 10 programs, and
all of them seem to be content with their coaches right now. As for OSU or USC,
why go through all of the hassle of another rebuild? Now, if an NBA squad starts
calling, I'll be concerned. I can't imagine that he'd pass up an
opportunity to take another crack at the NBA.
Never say never, but I think Coach K will stick around a while. He's got a
good situation here and is doing a good job. I don't think money will take
him away, because Chris Hill will probably match any offer he gets. I also think
he likes the family atmosphere of things here in Utah. He's got 5 kids of
his own and they are at ages when it is tough to uproot them.
Really, there must be something else to comment on. Utah is a better bball
destination than either of those schools and the Utes will pay what it takes.
Dibs, USC's coach hasn't even finished his first year. He inherited a
mess with a school that has no basketball history. I doubt very much they are
courting anyone. Who's courting Rose?
I have heard the same rumors up north so there may be something to it.
USC would be a good fit for him and more money. Not sure about OSU. Can't
blame him if he wanted to jump ship.
When your name is Ute Buster, of course you can't.I see coack K
sticking around; like Crabbers stated; he's got a pretty good gig in Utah.
.500 in conference does not a turnaround make....yet. But certainly on the
right track. I predict K will talk Delon into staying for his senior season,
post a winning record in conference, make the dance, make the Sweet 16, then
Coach K isn't going anywhere anytime soon, although I do hear rose is being
courted by USF/USD. Any truth to it?byu fans on here would love to
see Coach K move on, not unlike their wish to see Coach KW gone. They
understand their teams will likely never beat either of ours ever again, so long
as these two are at the helm!
I think Coach KW will probably be forced out as early as next year because he
will not have been successful in the "rebuilding" required to step up to
elite status within the PAC-12. If KW can't "turn the program
around" in what will have been four years, how long can he survive?While I don't see U football every becoming first tier in the PAC,
basketball, being an indoor game--and able to draw my California boys: Billy,
Andre, and Delon--just might get back to national prominence. That is, IF Coach
Krysto sticks around!Coach Krysto has done an outstanding job, so
Ute fans should be concerned.
Coach K is here to stay. He won't leave until the Utes are heading back to
the Dance consistently - and they are knocking on the door. Much to the dismay
of cougar faithful.
