So now the fun really begins. I think DePaul fans all think this is not going to be a crapshow, because JLP is not running the show any longer. However, it is still DePaul and well, DePaul does DePaul things.

I personally am in the no thank you to Richard Pitino or Archie Miller. Try something new. Give a coach an opportunity who has not crapped the bed elsewhere.

Is DePaul really seen as a high-major job though regardless of their conference affiliation?  I guess with a new AD and a big enough paycheck it could qualify.  I just wonder how much damage the decades of incompetence has done.

Porter Moser as much as it bothers me, is someone I see being hired. Why it bothers me, is I feel like he is in the right spot for him; building a really good mid-major program. I think he would be like Keno Davis going up to Providence; over his head at a high major.

Matt M Mahon of Murray State

110-51 last 4+ years. This year has been tough but this has and will be a challenging season.

2 NCAA Appearances 2 of the last 3 seasons. Probably would not have got in last year (23-9 lost championship to Belmont) but would been NIT bound.

Recruited and developed Ja Morant and helped make him intro the 2nd overall pick

I know we have a new AD, but are there any other pessimists out there like me that have their Stockholm/Depaul syndrome kicking in that DL may be kept for another futile year?

I would think a logical short list (somewhat in order) at this point is something like..

  • Kenny Payne
  • Darian DeVries
  • Anthony Grant
  • Dennis Gates
  • Brian Wardle
  • Bobby Hurley

I personally am really pulling for Dennis Gates, as VUWildcat said, he turned around Cleveland St really quickly. Has HM ast. coaching experience and being a lead recruiter. Extremely bright. Chicago guy. The best part is he'll bring Al Eichelberger with him haha

How it will play out.. I think Kenny Payne gets the first call and it's his job to lose.

Maybe Kenny Payne would be a decent HC??  Long time Associate HC at Kentucky,  NBA Assistanr, former NBA player, former NCAA team member winner....

I am a graduate of Villanova, so it is not as though I just grabbed a program to cheer for.

With Peevy, who knows that MBB is the revenue generating program, will probably push for spending some money. What I worry a bit about is they go after someone like Shaka Smart (not saying Shaka himself); what I mean by that, is taking a guy who was on a hot seat coming into the year, has been successful this year, and might translate that into a more secure gig. This is what Oliver did with DePaul.

Would you like Rashon, VU?

Btw,  is it easy also rooting for Nova?  I am a DPU and ND football fan in Florida... I should just re adjust my fandom to Duke BBall and Bama Football... much easier -  if I could only do it!

More likely Dennis Gates or that type of candidate than the first 3. He has turned around Cleveland State quickly.
