    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? )
    I'm not saying I don't think TJ has value, or that he can never be a good coach, but hopefully we are not at a place as a program where we could attract a more proven commodity.

    A guy like TJ in that situation should be a back up option until he proves himself in that role. Fred is the exception. Generally you would like to see some head coaching experience prior to stepping into the role at the B12 level coaching against Bill Self, Bruce Webber, Lon Krueger, Tubby, Rick Barnes, etc

    This is why Iowa State needs to invent a cloning machine.

    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.
    No one seems to be in a hurry to hire him as a head coach.
    Maybe he's potentially great, maybe not, but nobody seems very eager to hire him for a head coaching job.

    Two of those are on the downstretch of their careers, and will end where they are. Two I don't know much about. Three are coaches that either have real baggage or far too many rumors following them wherever they go. Surely JP can come up with better fits for ISU...

    Like?

    Every coach is a risk. McDermott and Chizik had all the cred in the world coming in.

    I think some are overstating our position here, given our recent success. Does ANYONE believe Fred would be here at all, or certainly still be sitting over in Sukup today, if he weren't a hometown product? We hit the freaking lottery there boys and girls.

    I just find it funny, that somehow we are now above TJ in many minds. A guy, I'll remind, we COULD NOT POSSIBLY LOSE 4 years ago. Seriously, eveyone's first words when Fred was hired was "what'll happen to TJ?"

    All that said - again, I have zero idea if TJ is worthy. But wow.....

    If CFH stays as most of us hope (till the twins are graduated, either from Gilbert or ISU), that would be plenty of time for TJ to prove himself in a headcoach position at a D2 and/or mid-majors. He could be a viable option in the future. Then again, if our collective dreams come true, I'll likely be dead & buried before CFH retires! ;)

    This is devastating news. I was looking forward to a little triangle offense to mix it up a little.

    Whoever it is... Recruiter 1st, coach 2nd. Josh Pastner wins 75% of his games. That tells me all I need to know.
