    I'm thinking TJ can hold out for a better job than Drake.

    Here's an article: Drake fires Mark Phelps - CBSSports.com

    BRING BACK A DAVIS (Tom or Keno will do)

    Sounds like they certainly might. I though Phelps was a decent coach, but Drake is just a hard spot. TJ would be a huge get for them (not that I want him to go).

    I wonder what Rick Pitino thinks about it. Maybe Cotman should ask.

    TJ has job security and is getting married. Wouldn't have security at Drake at all.

    Re: Mark phelps fired

    I always thought they should have stuck with somebody off of Keno's staff and stuck with the system that was in place.

    I don't know if there was really anyone that was that big of a head coach prospect, by Phelps wasn't a head coach either.

    At least Davis ball is fairly exciting, losing 20 point leads or erasing 20 point deficits in about 6 minutes.

    But it would be a head coaching job that he could have while his fiancee keeps her job and they would still get to see each other once in a while.

    I've talked to a couple of Drake alums and fans and most of them seem to want Bruce Pearl. I don't know if this is even a possibility, but that's what I was hearing

    Re: Mark phelps fired

    Pearl had a "show cause" until 2014, seems VERY unlikely.

    Didn't he get hit with a show-cause penalty?

    Does he have many other options? I hope they get someone good. I cheer for them when they aren't playing Iowa State

    I was kind of thinking the same thing but I couldn't remember if it was until 2013 or 2014.
