    Crean Seen Getting Off Iowa City Plane
    University Of Iowa Remains Quiet On Replacement

    Iowa City, Ia. -- Marquette basketball coach Tom Crean was seen getting off a University of Iowa airplane at the airport in Milwaukee on Monday -- fueling speculation that he has accepted an offer to coach the Hawkeyes. The University of Iowa said it will name its new basketball coach at a Monday afternoon news conference, but officials have been mum on who might replace the recently departed Steve Alford. Officials at Iowa and Marquette have declined to comment on whether Crean had been offered the job.
    Crean, who has been mentioned for several other coaching jobs across the country, was seen getting off the private plane along with several of his assistant coaches. Crean has taken the Golden Eagles to six NCAA tournaments in the last 13 years, including twice in the last three years. They have had nine consecutive 20-win seasons

    A good hire if true.

    I agree with BugDoc with it being a good hire for them. Now lets see if it be true

    Re: Crean?

    Why would Crean go to Iowa? Seems like a crappier job than Marquette.

    Doesn't he get paid big time money at Marquette? He would be taking a pay cut most likely.

    Massive hire if true...I couldn't help but be impressed. The state of Iowa would have two of the best game-day coaches in the country.

    Re: Crean?

    Excellent recruiter and coach. Maybe Crean is tired of Conference USA. I could see this being a good deal for both parties. Iowa will probably become pretty good now if this is true.

    That article looks vaguely familiar, with a few of the names/schools/places changed...

    Re: Crean?

    He's a god at MU. He's their Gillespie. That's a basketball school (there is no football) and he had no problem winning over anybody that's ever rooted for Marquette. That'd be one of the dumbest moves I've heard of in a while. And I'd be of that opinion if it involved another school besides EIU, unless that school were Kentucky. It's just speculation, but what are you thinking Crean!

    Kinda what I was thinking, maybe the same writer wrote both articles. Or someone is a day late on the April Fools jokes.

    This is what you call an April Fools joke from somebody who's a day late and a dollar short..

    Take that to the bank

    How about giving a link to the actual article? Google is unable to Yahoo anything about this...

    Crean was so tired of C-USA, his team went to the Big East... 2 years ago.

    Ummm.... Crean/Marquette is in the Big East, which traditionally has better quality MBB than the little 11...
