    Danny Manning as KU Head Coach if Self leaves?

    If Self leaves, it could put KU in a tough situation with Manning as an assistant. Would they be forced to give him the nod. Many times hiring an assistant may be OK, but with KU being a top school will they be settling to satisfy the fan base and past-legend/current assistant?

    If Manning gets the job and doesn't produce, then what? Do they fire one of their best players ever? Or do they watch their team become mediocre? It could work out good for KU if Manning does great, but living up to KU standards would be tough.

    If Manning doesn't get the job but wants it, does he leave or does he stay as an assistant? This would likely turn out bad either way.

    IF Self leaves your short list is Calipari, Larry Brown, and Lon Krueger with the nod going to Cal.

    I would be willing to go all in with my credits that Bill Self doesn't leave will be the Jayhawks head coach for as long as he wants.

    0% on Danny Manning being the coach.

    Bill Self is gone. But it might not be to OSU!

    Re: Danny Manning as KU Head Coach if Self leaves?

    If I were to put myself into Self's shoes and my alma-mater came calling with a $3+ million per year contract for the head coaching position after winning the National Championship, I would have a hard time turning them down. Either way it's a good thing. Get paid well (like he isn't already...) at the school you went to, or stay at KU and get paid well (they will renegotiate contracts) and continue to build up a dynasty (not saying he would, but it's hard to not be good at Kansas).

    I'm not sure what I would do. Probably go to my alma-mater, since I just won a NC for the current school.

    Where is he going. He just got a lifetime contract to coach KU a place that he got his coaching start at. His job just got a lit easier, why would he leave? Slim chance Manning will be head coach there.

    Re: Danny Manning as KU Head Coach if Self leaves?

    I think he stays at KU, at least for now. Then in about 4-8 years when the next Oklahoma State coach leaves, Self takes the job and stays there until he retires.


    For I for S forever!

    Danny Manning will be an NBA coach before Bill Self... Write that down.

    Not nearly as much as I do. Especially living down here in KC. I won't be able to watch television, listen to the radio, or even speak to anyone outside of my immediate family for at least a week.

    Re: Danny Manning as KU Head Coach if Self leaves?

    I could see Self leaving now since he won the title...but even then, I think it's a long shot. I don't see him in the NBA, either. Not when he can make 3 mil per year in the college game.

    What ever KU offers Bill Self in their renegotiated offer. I hope Boone Pickens doubles it and Bill walks away from Lawrence.
