    Retirements in College Basketball at the Big Time Programs

    So, a lot of coaches are starting to get near the age where the question of retirement is starting to grow. Schools like Duke, Louisville, Syracuse, UNC, Wisconsin have older coaches. When these guys retire, the college basketball coaching landscape will get rocked considerably. As of right now, if any of these coaches were to retire, who do you think would replace them. Also, if there are any other coaches who you think are getting up there in age and could retire in the next 5 years, post it.

    Coach K. (66)

    Pitino (60)

    Boheim (68)

    Ol' Roy (62)

    Bo Ryan (65)

    Mike Montgomery (66) - not big time, still a good coach

    Steve Fisher (68) - not big time, still a good coach.

    Syracuse has had a successor in waiting for about 6 years now (Mike Hopkins).

    Pitino is only 60??? He looks like the oldest coach of that group.

    If for some reason he leaves, a la Will Muschamp taking the Florida job and leaving Texas, is there anyone Syracuse would go after immediately?

    I imagine it would be someone who can either maintain their northeast recruiting ties, or who can recruit the Carolinas/mid-Atlantic given that they're moving to the ACC.

    I'm assuming Chris Collins will have a few mediocre years at NW before returning to coach the Blue Devils when Coach K hangs it up.

    Most seem to think that Wojo (Steve Wojciechowski) is the is the heir apparent to Coach K, they just haven't put the tag on him yet. Although following a legendary coach with one of the staff members is usually a recipe for disaster (see Dean Smith- Bill Guthridge at North Carolina)

    Interesting example, since Dean Smith himself was an assistant at UNC to a Hall of Fame coach...and I'm not sure how Bill Gutheridge--who led the team to two Final Fours in just three seasons--can be considered a "disaster".

    While the "legendary-ness" of their predecessors is certainly debatable, there are plenty of assistants who have become excellent coaches when handed the reins. Tom Izzo, Jim Boeheim, Brad Stevens, Mark Few, Frank Martin, etc. were all assistants to good coaches that did a nice job sustaining success.

    On the flip side, the only flops that come to mind immediately are Bob/Pat Knight and Eddie/Sean Sutton, and it could be argued that nepotism had more to do with their hiring than legitimate talent did.

    I would not envy any coach taking over any of these situations. Ridiculous pressure.
