    Bill Self rumored as possible coach at Arkansas

    They just reported tonight that Arkansas coach, Stan Heath will be fired if he can not win the SEC tournament and get the Razorbacks into the NCAA tournament (which is unlikely as he has been unable to win back to back conference games so far this season).

    They reported that Bill Self is apparently unhappy at Kansas and is rumored as a potential candidate to replace Heath. The university has made it clear that they will not hire an assistant or an up and coming coach, only a successful coach with a history of winning. They will not use a search committee.

    Sounds to me that they already have somebody waiting in the wings and only waiting to pull the trigger on Heath.

    One other name also mentioned is the coach from Texas A&M.

    Self would surprise me, Gillespie would not.

    Re: Bill Self rumored as possible coach at Arkansas

    I can't see those 2 coaches leaving for Arkansas. Let alone KU & A&M will be able to match $$$ with any offer from Arkansas. The only way the Razorbacks would have a chance at those 2 would be if they're was a personal connection with those 2 coaches.

    Perhaps a guy the razorbacks could get would be Bobby Huggins.....1 year wonder will have K-State in the NCAA for the 1st time in 10 yrs & I've seen rumors of his wife wanting out of Manhattan already....I can't see why he'd want to stay anyway.

    Go for Huggins.

    Even if you are unhappy how do you leave the recruiting gold mine in Kansas? I guess happiness is sort of important...lol, but I would be VERY surprised if Self leaves Kansas for Arkansas.

    Makes you wonder when guys like Mark Few at Gonzaga or Reggie Theus at New Mexico State are going to pull the trigger on their programs and bolt for a major college program. After the tough year Few had, I wouldn't be surprised if he moved somewhere else.

    They actually mentioned that Self would have to take a pay cut but they still think he would somehow be interested. I personally don't see it happening. A lot of wild stuff happening down here ever since the football fiasco with the Springdale players. It's evidently lead to AD Frank Broyles announcing his retirement, Nutt's job becomes uncertain, and Broyles basically fires Heath before he leaves.

    It's all been rather amusing...

    Interesting, Reggie has the Aggie program "Rockin" after just 2 years.....21-7 WAC 10-4.........anybody that has watched them knows Reggie can coach and recurit with the best. Anybody remember Lou Henson??? He coach the Illini for ever..........he also coached at NMSU and when he left the Illini he came back to las cruces and coached the Aggies. he told Reggie that if you build it stay ............don't leave as I did. Reggie is reported here to have listened and promised to stay..........$$$$ talks and B**s**t walks.......he would be a great hire somewhere.

    Arkansas MBB has been rather unremarkable starting with the 1995-1996 season (the first season after their "glory years") through the present. They've had double digit seasonal loss totals for all but one of those years, and they've been above 0.500 in conference only 5 times in that period. It's not a marquee MBB school anymore. But money talks, and maybe they've got a "Johnny Orr" lined up to come in and take them back to where Richardson had them from the late '80s through mid '90's.

    I remember when you couldn't get "a lil higher up" than Arkansas basketball. Most on here are probably too young to remember the glory days of the Nolan Richardson era.

    Talk about returning to the glory years, how about Eddie Sutton? Maybe they can get him out of retirement and back to be the Razorbacks coach.
