    Rumors regarding Missouri/Oklahoma openings

    Just heard a rumor...only a rumor...that Gregg Marshall is the overwhelming front runner to land the Oklahoma gig.

    Matt Painter is out of the picture in Missouri. One would think that they'll make a run at Shaka Smart. I'd guess he'd go to NC State before Mizzou though. Just my opinion. Another name to keep an eye on is Mick Cronin (Cincinnati).

    Not very exciting if you ask me.

    the $$$$ for coaches is staggering. going rate for a "good" coach is now ~$2M. seems to be going up about $500K per season.

    I know. Who can believe it was just a short 4 or 5 years ago when a guy would take a gig pro bono.

    Re: Rumors regarding Missouri/Oklahoma openings

    At this point we haven't really heard who we are targeting now. Here are some of the names being thrown around on Powermizzou.

    Brad Stevens (Not going to happen)
    Shaka Smart (Of course with the run he is on)
    Chris Mack
    Brad Brownell
    Anthony Grant (not going to happen)
    Mick Cronin
    Gregg Marshall
    Ben Jacobson (I hope not)
    Randy Bennett
    Kevin Stallings
    Chris Mooney
    Larry Drew
    Kim Anderson

    I'm sure I'm missing some others that have been brought up.

    Re: Rumors regarding Missouri/Oklahoma openings

    Isn't Gregg Marshall regarded as the most hated coach in the valley? I think I've heard that on a few different occassions. If so, this could get interesting....and another reason for me to extend my hate for OU from the Kelvin Sampson era.

    Just heard on the radio this morning: Oklahoma has contacted Bruce Weber at Illinois. He is not denying it either.

    Has there ever been a MVC coach that has been successful in the Big 12?

    Turgeon is doing OK at Texas A&M, but that machine was pretty well rolling along when he got there.

    After that, I'm not real confident in picking one.


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

    I don't know how anyone could play for 4 years under Weber. After hearing his voice for 2 years I'd jump off a bridge. I'm petty but I seriously couldn't do it.

    It wouldn't surprise me if this was true. Weber isn't loved at Illinois because he gets pretty good talent and doesn't do too much with it. The expectations this year were much more than a 9 seed in the tournament.

    Weber better not be playing Illinois like Painter played Missouri because Illinois might not care if he leaves.

    Other coaches see things like Auburn paying Tony Barbee $1.6 million last year and aren't going to take less than the "going rate".

    Which is why Pollard made a great hire with Hoiberg...because we weren't going to get any "good" established coach for under $1.5 million.

    As for Oklahoma, they HAVE to be going after a coach still playing...otherwise it doesn't make much sense why they are waiting so long.

    Re: Rumors regarding Missouri/Oklahoma openings

    I don't know why Mizzou fans were so down on Anderson. I have a large Mizzou contingent in my extended family and they were all telling me they were hopeful that Arkansas would take him off their hands.

    I was like "Good luck with that".

    The grass may not be greener. I realize that they sort of underachieved this year, but they have overachieved under him as well.

    Fans are pretty fickle.
