    Tim Floyd to Memphis?

    Tim Floyd is said to be high on the list at Memphis to replace Calipari. If the money is right I think he would leave USC. Memphis was willing to match Kentucky's offer so there must be some money down there. Supposedly, Floyd only makes 850.000 a year at USC right now.

    Tim Floyd needs to just sit his *** down and stick with a team.

    I would not put a lot of staock in that. Tim and bev are very, very happy in So Cal. I am not sure there is enough of a pull to Memphis. He can build one heck of a program at 'SC and the recruiting is easier.

    I don't really care either way, but I think one could make a strong arguement against that. (Based on recent history of winning, at least). Plus, USC has to compete with UCLA across town. Memphis does have Tennessee & Vandy, but neither of those teams are UCLA.

    Now if you're talking about actual location, you couldn't be more right. (weather, hotties, etc, etc.)

    You must be kidding - just check the home attendance averages between the two schools. Floyd has a huge ego, and I think he's tired of walking out to home games with an arena that's only half or two-thirds full. Memphis, on the other hand, has a huge following.
    This would be a no-brainer...

    Re: Tim Floyd to Memphis?

    Memphis will have trouble landing a high profile coach from a BCS conference like Floyd, imo. The only reason they got Calipari is because he was damaged goods at the time and coming off an epic failure in the NBA.

I wouldn't be suprised at all to see him leave, plus with big cotton and FedEx,you know they have the money to pay...

    Re: Tim Floyd to Memphis?

    Is Memphis a big enough city for Mrs. Floyd? I thought I heard that she was not very fond of small cities/towns and would prefer to be in a major metro area. Memphis isn't tiny obviously, but it ain't LA.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all either if he left but I think he is pretty comfortable at USC.

    I know one small mid-western town she is very, very fond of. She still visits this town pretty often to see old friends and enjoy some familiar places.

    Re: Tim Floyd to Memphis?

    Some of you are acting like Memphis is a premier coaching gig. End of the day, we're still talking about conference USA. It's like Gonzaga - where would they be without Mark Few?
