    He's still in management at the Timberwolves, right? A VP of operations, according to a wiki. Head coach would be a horizontal move, pay-wise, but he might take it. It would be a greater challenge than the paper-shuffling he's doing now.

    He has never coached at any level. But he most likely couldn't do any worse than the guy currently filling the position.

    Pollard

    The almighty one, Jamie Pollard, was on his own for his first two head coach hiring decisions for the absolute most important head coach positions of any college athletic department, men's football and men's basketball and he has struck out big time!!! Chizik was a disaster and McDermott is way over his head.

    Fire Pollard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't think there's many people on this board that could do much better.

    Rhoads bought Pollard some time and rightfully so. He did better on his 2nd football coaching search. Hopefully he does better on his 2nd basketball search.

    I wasn't behind Pollard to begin with but I think he is doing good things building up the $ base. Chizik & McDermott were not good choices but face it Rhoads is an excellent choice and an Atheletic Department is nothing without $. He's hitting his stride now.

    I'm pretty sure I could. I thought Mac D was a safe, inexpensive, easy hire from day one. Nothing exciting about the guy. A couple decent years at UNI?? So what. This is the Big 12.

    Is that the standard that we are setting now for Athletic Directors?
