Didn't a past VCU coach run off to Oklahoma? How did that turn out? Well, best of luck to everyone concerned.

Loyola is not exactly a tiny little school. They have an enrollment of 17,000 students and those religious people love to donate their hard earned cash. They have a 700 million dollar endowment. They keep it up for a few more years and the BE may come a calling.

Guthridge did fine. Two Final Fours in 3 years. The most wins ever by a coach in his first 3 years.

Doherty was/is a head case. That was his main problem.
Yes he is, and yet, Doherty is still a big shot in the A-10 offices. :roll:

Dean retired very late in the year on October 9th. It pretty much guaranteed that Guthridge would get the job. Guthridge had been very faithful to Dean and had passed up multiple head coaching offers (including at his alma mater Kansas State) while being on Dean’s staff for a couple decades.

Roy was offered the job when Guthridge retired and initially accepted it before being unable to tell his players at Kansas that he was leaving them. UNC hired Doherty instead. He had done very well in his two seasons at Notre Dame, but it quickly became apparent that he was nuts after he took the job.

When they fired Doherty, Kansas was in the Final Four and the infamous interview happened where he was asked right after their loss about the UNC job.
Doherty only coached one season at ND and went 22-15 (1999-2000 season). I’ve had a couple of friends, who are ND alums, tell me that he wasn’t well-liked in his one year there. That could just be sour grapes from them.

Would not be a surprise to see Rhoades mentioned for UNC.
Zero chance of him being considered. Carolina typically stays in-house. Even if they didn’t this time, they would aim for coaches of top 25 programs, or people with ties to Ol’ Roy, like Turgeon.

He's a billionaire, not a measly millionaire, and he owns an NBA team. I am more likely to be the next UNC coach than he is
Are you breaking news here? Are you, N Mollen, going to be the next coach at UNC? If so, then can you start regularly scheduling VCU in a home and home? Thanks.
