    JP's short list

    All AD's keep (or should) a short list of candidates lined up in case the current coach unexpectedly leaves. Who do you think J.P. has on his short list? And do you think it includes this guy?

    I would certainly hope that TJ is down on the contingency list as a back up option at this point.

    Why?

    I know zero about coaching, prospective coaches, up and comers, etc. I could probably name about 20 college coaches outside ISU. So I have zero idea who's likely.

    But TJ is revered here. Has an excellent reputation. Clearly can recruit and has very strong ties to ISU.

    And it's not like our last "no-headcoaching experience" hire didn't work out halfway decent.

    Downside?

    (or are you thinking he may have TOO much coaching experience? )

    Re: JP's short list

    Just because it worked tremendously with a man who's never failed at anything means it will work again.
    Fred's special. You don't plan like he's the norm. You just appreciate that people like him don't come around very often.


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

    Re: JP's short list

    I think if/ when Fred decides to leave the first person JP calls is T.J. He knows the plan Hoiberg has put into place and I think he would cone very highly recommended from Hoiberg as well.

    Fred stays for another 5-7 years while grooming Charlie Henry to be the next head coach and keep our offensive juggernaut going.

    Phil Jackson
    Tom Tibedeau
    Izzo
    Coach K
    Pitino
    Billy Donovan
    Guessing Bill Self would not move inter conference.

    I don't know that I'd count the stint in the Timberwolves front office as a success.

    Fred was a huge gamble. A gamble that happened to work out really well. I think Otz could make a great head coach, but he would be another big gamble that may not work out as well. I think many would probably agree that we could attract a more experienced coach at this point in the program.

    You're right, lots of unsuccessful people end up working in NBA front offices. Barely a step up from McDonalds drive through attendant.

    All I know is this: Don't expect any guys whose better days are behind them. Names like Tubby Smith, etc. Based off of my observations, Pollard is all about finding the next big thing.

    Not sure if you were replying to me or not....

    But are you suggesting that TJ would come into the HC job at ISU under even remotely similar circumstances as Fred?

    The man has recruited and sat on the sidelines of college for what? 10 years? Including a couple on our own under what may end up being our best coach EVER. Not to mention under the tutelage of what is considered one of the best offensive minds in the game.
