In Reply to: UCLA hires Mick Cronin ... Who??? posted by College Fan on April 09, 2019 at 12:05:14:
: UCLA’s hiring today of Mick Cronin scream how little the Westwood administration cares about their basketball program and maybe more about the culture within the athletic department.
: In Cronin they get a coach who has had marginal success in the mid-major basketball community and a coach with no ties to either the school, the West Coast or the PAC12.
: Here are 10 others who should have been pursued by UCLA ...
: Luke Walton - probably available this weekend and they should have at least waited
: Earl Watson - Bruin grad; would relate better than Cronin
: Mark Gotfried - West Coast connections that are better than most
: Reggie Theus - SoCal basketball royalty
: Bobby Hurley - brings passion and a family history of coaching success
: John Schyer - next successful coach from Coach K’s tree
: Myles Simon - Mater Dei grad with PAC12 credentials
: Larry Eustachy - veteran coach - great recruiter with West Coast ties
: Kevin Ollie - another black coach who would relate well with player; AAU ties as well
: Marty Wilson - former Pepperdine head coach and now one of the top assistants in PAC12
You are kidding right?
Dude is a bad coach and was at CSUN with academic cloud over program.
Just because you can play in the NBA, doesn't mean you can coach.
But I agree with your premise. If you are waiting this long, at least feel out Walton (maybe they did?) or go with Watson.
