    I hope this doesn't hurt the Tripod. Real talk Maya Smart is basically Condoleeza Rice with broader appeal. Shaka is a badass person but a shitty coach. She is the underrated draw though. I think we have football donors that would rather disband our basketball program than lose the Smarts. Michigan is a fit, I just don't wish that on yalls bball program.

    So the catch is he is tight with our assistants which are well regarded by everyone. I could see an outcome where he defers a lot of the in-game decision making to them and just kills it on the recruiting trail. But yeah, this is not an inspiring development :ohdear:

    I think its agent saber rattling. Shaka is a dead man walking at Texas and any association with good jobs will be manufactured.

    Our insiders are saying there is legit mutual interest. Our current ad supposedly tried to hire him at UConn when Calhoun retired but ended up being forced to hire ollie. Our former ads(Bill Martin) son also was smarts roommate in college and our current ads mentor was Bill Martin. Also as mentioned above it seems like he would try to keep some of our highly though of assistants (specifically Yaklich and our star bball s&c Jon Sanderson) and the administration would like to see that happen.

    Our people are saying he has interest in hiring Yaklich to our staff. I think thats more likely and this talk is opportunity for CAA to promote its boy while yall negotiate the real hire.

    I'm calling it: Shaka hires away Yaklich, and Michigan announces Porter Moser as their new head coach.

    Then Warde Manuel goes into hiding while fearing for his safety.

    Smart just needs a change of scenery. There's a reason he's still a very highly coveted head coach. There are probably only a handful of coaches more sought after...He's awesome and great and everything is fine.

    I can't do this.

    Losing yaklich regardless of the next coach would suck. He’s the best recruiter on the staff and has done incredible things defensively.

    Cliches regarding inexperience, needing a "proven" HC is the #1 reason. Dude was coaching high school ball 6 years ago ...

    In an ideal world a reputable HC type would keep him and Saddi Washington on the staff ...

    Juwan was the first player to ever get a $100 million contract, this was after the NBA rejected a deal he signed with the Heat. I can't remember 1 good moment from his time with the Bullets.

    Seems like it's Howard's job to lose, but there are some pretty significant questions he's going to have to answer to the satisfaction of the AD to get the job tomorrow.

    I don't think Yaklich or the the other assistant (Saddi Washington) is a legit candidate. I'm guessing UM is pushing that to try to keep them in the program at least until a coach is announced. Some chatter about LaVall Jordan, too, but that seems unlikely given his lack of HC resume.

    That seems like a uninspiring final 3 for a job on the level of Michigan.

    Cooley is a pretty good coach, though.

    Timing definitely didn't help. It'd be nice to have guys like Nate Oats and Buzz Williams on the market. Hell, even Hoiberg.

    I mean hiring a former player has worked wonders for their football team. That’s a strategy you implement whenever you can across the board.

    If Juwan Howard had a first four years similar to Harbaugh, I think UM would be very happy with that.

    Losing to your rivals every year, 0 conference titles, and doing shitty in the postseason, pretty sure you wouldn't be happy about that after Beilein.
