    Hypothetical

    What if this were the year we were letting Wayne Morgan go? Assuming Gmac was already off the market, would JP have made a run at Keno?

    Re: Hypothetical

    Perhaps, but I would be surprised, just because I don't think he'd want to replace Wayne's run and gun with Keno's run and gun. He was trying to make a change and that may not be perceived as a big enough change.

    Re: Hypothetical

    I think JP would have had to take a serious look at Keno, but if you are basing a hire on a body of work, GM is still much more qualified.

    Re: Hypothetical

    personally i like keno's style of play more. I think its a lot more exciting to watch but who knows gmac may start letting his team run more once he gets players that can do that effectively. to answer the original question I'm not sure it would probably depend on the success Gmac had during the same season

    Re: Hypothetical

    The body of work is almost non-existent with Keno. Sure he had an excellent year but we all know that flukes happen. If I were Providence fans I would be happy but a little skeptical about hiring a coach with 1 year of head coaching experience.

    Oops, sorry.

    In that case, my answer is similar...

    JP takes a look at Keno, but goes with someone with a better body of work.

    Re: Hypothetical

    the main difference was player control and discipline between Wayne's run and gun and Keno's run and gun. Keno seemed to always have his players under control and he seemed to always be running the show where in contrast Wayne's teams seemed to run the show and show no real court discipline. I remember during timeouts stinson yelling at players and other players jumping around like they were on the playground and not the court. I don't believe JP was getting away from the run and gun but more the control and discipline issues regarding the teams on court demeanor

    I'll agree with you to a point here but part of the reason I think Wayne got fired is to help build Pollards legacy. Hard to say "and look at the brilliant job I did with the basketball team" if the coach predates you

    I hit a 3-pointer in my driveway last night. I am now getting calls from the NBA.
