    Ames Tribune: Thompson has fielded 15 calls from coaches

    Not sure if this has been posted yet:

    Go Cyclones - Gillispie and then some with coaching search

    Ive talked to a number of people that have taken six, seven, eight teams to NCAA Tournament, Thompson said. So I found there is a number of these guys as head coaches of major universities. I dont think there is a problem in finding who you want, its up to (ISU athletic director) Jamie (Pollard) to see what he thinks is the best result he can get right now for the program.

    Thats awesome. Apparently the country doesnt think this place is a graveyard as much as some make it out to be.

    I will be extremely disappointed if we hire Nurse after hearing this. I was going to be disappointed if we hired Nurse anyway but after this, we better not settle on him.

    Why are coaches contacting Thompson rather than Pollard?

    if you were gary thompson it would be so easy to call the trib and say all that, true or not. This could just be to try and hype up the job. Hope its not the case though.

    Re: Ames Tribune: Thompson has fielded 15 calls from coaches

    The fact that he has taken a " number of people that have taken six, seven, eight teams to NCAA Tournament" is certainly big news. The list of people who have taken 6+ teams to the NCAAs is a pretty elite group, much less a 'number of people'.

    I think theres a potential we may have some money lined up for a hire and the coaches have been made aware of this. This is the first time since LE we arent trying to find a way to hire a new coach and pay a $1mil+ buyout at the same time. Combine that with Creighton's payment to us as well as rumors of certain donors who were willing to step up and buy out all or part of McDermott's contract and all of a sudden an elite hire could be possible.

    He's the middle man, and extremely involved in our basketball program.

    Most coaches arent contractually allowed to contact another AD officially without notifying their AD, so Thompson makes a good middle-man.
