    Henderson has the same issues as Amaker. He not only has only coached at Princeton, but played there as well. So far, of the names offered, I like Dennis Gates the best. Conventional wisdom would have him go to a mid-major as a head coach before coming here, but I think the economics of the thing force us to go outside the box, which hiring Gates from the assistant ranks would do. he's been an assistant in one form or another for more than 10 years, so he's probably ready for a head job. He also strikes me as someone who might be willing to accept an Xs-and-Os assistant to develop an offense.

    Would call Few and Tony Bennett first.

    Bryce Drew and Tom Crean next, followed by Gates, Turner, and Amaker.

    Like Cuonzo, but insane for Mizzou to have him at the top of their list and pay him that much. Just jacked up the price for the Illinois job and will need a bigger splash than Cuonzo.

    Please, Few is not leaving unless he is paid a boatload. Tony Bennett? Why would come all the way back out here when he is settled in at Virginia, and can dominate the ACC once the old vanguard (Coach K, Roy Williams, Rick Pitino and Jim Boeheim) leave?

    Tom Crean would be a good hire but he will get offers elsewhere should Indiana can him.

    Whoever we get, we need facilities asap.

    Few and Bennett have better situations where they're at. So does Drew, who is making more than $2 million a year at Vanderbilt. Crean makes more than $3 million. Please. I've commented on Gates, Turner and Amaker.

    Hopefully they are names not speculated on here as it will indicate Williams knows what he is doing

    Wouldn't expect Few or Bennett and Drew or Crean would be longshots, but looks Mizzou aimed low and overpaid. Be OK with Gates or Turner.

    If we're talking longshots, we might as give J-Kidd a call and see how much he likes the NBA grind and living in Milwaukee.

    Too bad he makes $6 million a year otherwise we could talk a reasonable hometown discount.

    What NBA grind? They basically have the entire summer off, since there's no recruiting involved. In fact, a number of pro coaches have been quoted recently as saying they'd never go back to college coaching if they had a choice.

    How about another Bennett, Randy.

    Since we got one Aussie coming in maybe we could get a pipeline to others!

    Jason Kidd does usually, Steve Kerr on the other hand is possibly coaching into June every year. Not having to worry about personnel management is a nice benefit though.

    And as just mentioned, get Randy Bennett now.

    Totally in favor of Randy Bennett

    Cal's not hiring anyone without a degree. Cuonzo's now making more than Shaka ($3.5M vs 2.8M).

    +1. I'd take the Sherriff in a New York minute. And if he brings his brother then so much the better. Maybe add Theo too.
