    why so soon

    Mac left monday so tell me why we have a coach tuesday. Give it some time and see who is all interested. It seemed like it was been planed out or something. It should take longer than a day to find a new head coach.

    It may have been to just try and keep the recruits..... but it does seem like this moved fast

    You do realize it is almost May right? Did you hope we would wait until practice starts?

    We had 15 coaches call Thompson as of the time that article printed. You cant tell me we investigated those options. Hoiberg wasnt going anywhere.

    Conspiracy theory time! JP didn't fire gmac, but told him he's taking the first MVC ticket out of town. Hoiberg must have previously indicated his interest, and both were ready at a moment's notice.

    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    In the words of KG (albeit for a different and less fantasic guy):

    He's our coach for the conceivable future, deal with it.

    Or wait around and let the recruits get cold feet and disperse elsewhere.

    Re: why so soon

    JP has to have a pretty decent list to replace any coach at any time. Add to that the fact that McD was probably on the verge of being fired a couple months ago, that JP probably knew about Creighton a couple days before the rest of us, and this doesn't seem like such a rush hire.


    Winning cures all.

    Probably more going on behind the scenes than will ever be admitted to. It all started with Altman who had been having discussions with Phil Knight for the better part of a week. Add in the fact that Pollard and Rasmussen have a good relationship and the possibility is there to connect the dots.

    I think McD was given a lot of encouragement to start looking a month ago. JP has been looking seriously for several weeks...
