Illini Basketball / Re: Does the Michigan hire help B1G teams or hurt

My guess is that the Howard hiring will have a similar boost to recruiting like Penny Hardaway's at Memphis.  The big question for both is can they coach at the D1 level.  Regardless of other experience, neither one has been a D-1 head coach.  Winning is what matters.  If they can win, they will succeed, but if they can't coach these players to wins, then they will be a flash in the pan.

Illini Basketball / Does the Michigan hire help B1G teams or hurt
« Last post by lwchicago on May 23, 2019, 05:36:46 PM »
I've often said that a great head coach has to have a good staff in place to be successful.

Howard going to Michigan could be downfall for the Illini. He is from Chicago and stays in touch with the basketball scene in the area. His personality is inviting and he knows the game.

Can he put everything together? Who knows but if hes smart he gets a good x and o's guy for a assistant and hes halfway home.

I've thought this about the Illini for years, they need to bring in former players that can teach in practice.

Your career leader in points, who coaches should have the option to coach at his former university.

Kendall is in very good shape and could help the team I'm sure but I dought if he has been offered a  position ever.

Most good college teams you can find former players on the bench and it has to attract players to know I get to practice against a former D1 star, they like to know there is someone with the team that can help guide them to the NBA which is their goal.
