    Keno Davis out at Providence soon?

    KCCI mentioned this on the news tonight. It's a good thing for him he got paid while he was a hot commodity.

    Wouldn't be a shocker. Hasn't had a good season since he left Drake. He does have the best scorer in the Big East, though. Brooks is kind of a beast.

    I think Keno can probably coach. But he's getting what he deserves for jumping at the first opportunity that presented itself, like a puppy on a Milk Bone. Yeah, it was a step up, but could he win there? Obviously not.

    So, you would have passed on the money PC gave Keno? Likely, not.

    Re: Keno Davis out at Providence soon?

    Yeah, it sounds like he's done. I realize there are other factors involved, such as Providence's low status in the Big East, but I guess I never understood why he was such a hot commodity when the Fryars nabbed him. Yes, Drake had a fantastic season, but those players were not his. They were his dad's. It was a team made up of a lot of junior's and seniors. I don't want to take anything away from the job he did that year, because they were very good, but I just don't know what he showed that would make anyone think he'd be capable of turning around a program like Providence. I don't blame him for taking the job, because hey it's the Big East and it was a big payday. Maybe I'm way off base, but it seems like he had flash in the pan written all over him.

    I totally agree, if someone is going to pay you grab it.

    Exactly. You take the money. If you succeed youve got an even bigger payday coming. If you dont succeed you'll still make more in a few years (and plus the buyout) than you would have in a much longer period of time where you started.

    He jumped at the first offer he got. He could have gotten money AND gone to a place where he'd have had a chance to win, IMO, if he'd been more patient.

    And you can start over e.g. McDermott, Floyd, Eustacy, etc, etc, etc.

    Do you think he could end up back at Drake? Would there be mutual interest? He seemed to be a good fit for the Bulldogs.

    You can't say that. What if he tanked the next year at Drake? The money and the jobs would be no where to be found.

    I think he's saying that there would (probably) be other jobs coming open that same offseason that might have been better than Providence. I don't remember what was open that year, but I think that's where he was going.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Ya maybe, but I doubt he would have got much better offers.

    ive always said this. Daddys players, mostly experienced upper classmen and he has a good year of just helping facilitate. Yeah it was more than that but probably not as good of a coach as most thought. I can compare keno and tom to Bob Knight and Pat knight situation in my opinion
