: : UCLAs 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 Ks 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

: Generally, I agree with many of your preferred suggestions. Also, let's not forget that Kevin Ollie was from Crenshaw High before he went to play and coach for UConn.

Watson doesn't have his degree. Must have a degree to coach in division 1. Same reason, JKidd can't coach in college
