He should be WSU'S next Coach (he's an alum) after Ernie gets canned by the new Prez.

Why would you wish that on him? A very few coaches have been successful there, but it's mostly a coaching graveyard.

Anyway I thought you said high major...

That's a long list. Guaranteed most of those guys flop when they move on to bigger jobs. Same as it's always been. So many coaches become the next hot thing after a big run in the Tourney, only to disappear some years down the road.

There's usually a big pull to ones' alma mater. And though it's "mostly" a coaching graveyard, several have had decent success.

Yes, I still recall the toughness of the Clay Thompson team.

It takes a very special coach, seems Leon has as much going for him as anyone.

I hope Billy gets another shot. Tough for me to tell whether anyone could've gotten out from under the situation he was in, such a good guy I hope he gets other offers.

WSU is a great opportunity to get to the big time without the pressure to win today....Tony being the best example of how to do it...Go Cougs….
