    He is not a very good coach. Somehow he keeps getting raises and new contracts.

    Sounds like another head coach we know of, and nobody I know of would say we got the worse end of that deal.

    This was my first thought as well.


    A few names to watch out for if Haith does leave:

    Jeff Goodman@GoodmanESPN 44m
    A few names Missouri will consider at (if Haith leaves): Mike White, Archie Miller, Matt Painter (again), Pat Kelsey.


    The coaching carousel just never stops.

    I'll make the inevitable post: Any good potential poaching targets?

    He had a solid first regular season there with Anderson's recruits. This is at best a lateral move though. He realized he can't have consistent success in a major conference so he's getting out while he can.

    i think haith is getting run. his contract, which ends next year, is not being extended. he sees the writing (or is told the truth) and jumps at a solid mid-major job. :yes:

    I want to see Haith driving from Columbia to Tulsa in a white bronco with the NCAA chasing him in a helicopter

    You guys laugh at Tulsa, but they'll be joining a conference that's produced three of the last four NCAA tournament champions. And though it's been a while since they had a notable coach (the jury's still out on Danny Manning, in my view), but Nolan Richardson, Tubby Smith, Bill Self...all coaches at Tulsa, all went on to win national championships.

    It seems like a low-risk, potentially high-reward opportunity. If he can come in and make Tulsa competitive with UConn, Memphis, and Cincinnati on a regular basis, that'll win him a lot more accolades than doing well in the SEC, where his ceiling was always going to be 3rd place behind Kentucky and Florida.
