    Decuire had Rorie committed and signed to Cal. That he got him at Montana wasn't some stellar recruiting job by him.

    Here's a random name: Shareef Abdur-Rahim. Came back to Cal and got his degree, lives in Sacramento. Current job is in the front office of the Kings.

    Kings assistant coach for 2 years. Would be a home-run hire.

    Correction - apparently he got sick of the Kings disfunction. He now works for the NBA league office.

    More like a Half-Court shot. A low percentage hire. Hasn't been a head coach anywhere, no info known about his recruiting ability, or ability to run a program.

I'd rather go for someone outside the box, like Gates, to see if we can somehow break out of miasma we're in.
    Bennett has beaten Gonzaga. He swept Gonzaga in the regular season just last year. So not sure what you're getting at. And if you think it would be easier to get an Ivan Rabb or Jaylen Brown to Saint Mary's than a Cal ... Regardless of academic issues, almost all big-time recruits will pick a Power 5 over a mid-major any year with all things being equal (i.e. scholarships to both schools, doesn't feel strongly or feels just as strongly for both coaches, both in the same overarching metropolitan area so you're not comparing Seattle to Manteca, etc).

    That said, Bennett would never leave Saint Mary's for Cal just like Few would never leave Gonzaga for Cal. So it doesn't matter if he's your third backup choice if he wouldn't ever be interested anyway.

    Shareef quit the Kings almost 3 years ago and sued the team. I doubt he's still in Sacramento.

    I would like to see us hire someone with either a Cal connection or west coast one. At least that gives us a better chance of retaining them longer term.

    That depends on what he's making at St Mary's. Common sense tells me he's not going to turn down a $500k raise for instance when he wouldn't even have to relocate.

    I hope the Bozeman suggestion was a joke, because it should be.
    Get a sense of humor, please.

    I wonder if Richard Midgley would have an interest in coaching? I believe he is now an NBA scout after leaving Modesto Christian. I imagine Cal will go with a coach with college coaching experience. I thought Travis Decuire would have been a good choice when Martin got the job.

    Have you seen Davis play? Pretty much the ugliest offense I've seen00 uglier than Cuonzo. They basically all play like Coleman drive the lane and pray for a call.

    The Final Four is a great gathering of coaches and assistants. The timing should allow for a good search.
