    Illinois going after Shaka Smart

    Eye On College Basketball - CBSSports.com Source: Shaka Smart still weighing Illinois offer

    Short article but here are the details:

    Shaka Smart is still weighing an offer from Illinois.
    Smart signed an eight-year deal after last year's Final Four run worth about $1.2 million per year.
    Illinois has, per sources, offered a deal worth in the neighborhood of $2.5 million per year.
    Sources indicate that Smart could make a decision as early as Tuesday night.

    Not really surprised by this. If he doesn't take this opportunity, I think he might stay a while for something much bigger.

    Hard to see him turning that down.

    2.5 mil.... Wow... Sad at how much money some places will throw out there for a flash in the pan coach.

    And that is what he is so far.

    Not surprising since both he & his wife are from Chicago...

    I would say this is a Smart decision.

    Re: Illinois going after Shaka Smart

    I know everyone does it, but it irks me to see a guy sign an 8 year contract and then be shopping himself around the next year.

    With that said... good move here by Illinois. He has proven that he can win in March.

    I never said fluke.

    Flash in the pan. He is a third year coach. Never won his conference yet.

    Yes a final 4 last year... Several coaches coaches can claim that and never did much else.

    He hasn't proved 2.5 mil worth yet.

    Re: Illinois going after Shaka Smart

    It would be a homerun hire, especially if Shaka can get Robert Smith to come as an assistant as well. They would have Chicago on lock down for a very long time.
