    Timeline to name a new coach?

    I'd like to see a new coach named yet this week. Needs to be done quickly IMO.

    Well, we really aren't in that much competition against other schools for quality candidates...

    Re: Timeline to name a new coach?

    Has Colvin officially been released from the Program, with the new coach coming in can he come back?
    THat would be nice if true...
    I would say within the week a hire will be made either on Thursday or Friday would be my guess

    I would think JP should take whatever time he needs...this is an important hire! Football was important obviously...but even JP has stated the importance of having a winning MBB program at ISU! He best not rush this hire simply for the purpose of having a coach in place...needs to be the right coach!

    Re: Timeline to name a new coach?

    I hope it is done quickly but not at the expense of making the wrong choice. Hopefully a strong candidate shows himself early on.

    With the situation that our team is in, quite frankly I don't see how waiting another couple of weeks would really make that much of a difference.

    Looks like Mike Brey is out at ND as well, rumor is he had an affair with someone and is being forced out. So there will be another BCS job available.

    Re: Timeline to name a new coach?

    Why should the new hire happen quickly? It's not like there is any real rush. Let it take all summer--what's the difference? It's not like it will matter in the win-loss column next year.

    Take your time and find the right guy, Jamie.

    Re: Timeline to name a new coach?

    I wonder if there is empirical evidence that it takes longer to hire the "right" coach than it does to hire the "wrong" coach?

    Re: Timeline to name a new coach?

    However long it takes to get the right guy. If thats a couple weeks, fine, if thats half an hour, fine. We rushed to lock down McD, and look where that got us. We hired LE in almost August.

    LE was not a coaching search. It was planned and was known and announced pretty much when Floyd left for the Bulls. Apples and oranges

    Well Creighton took about a day so I guess that could be empirical evidence to suggest waiting is a good idea. A knee jerk reaction isn't what we need, but once the job posting wait period is up I would think we'd start to hear names.

    Re: Timeline to name a new coach?

    I belived the job has to be listed by state law for 7-10 days...I doubt a new coach can be named that quickly.

    Didn't we hire Mac like 4 days after firing Wayne-O? I'm pretty sure that wouldn't matter.
