New Head Coach Candidates
« on: January 11, 2021, 09:07:30 AM »
I really think DPU is not going to invest much more than they did with DL.  Covid doesn't help.  Frankly if they were all in with a budget I am sure DL would have been canned last year with Peevy being hired earlier and given the directive to hire the new Head Coach.

They are "Amortizing" DL's contract...its the DePaul Way!

Candidates:

1.  Porter Moser
2.  Briand Wardle
3.  Kenny Payne
4.  Dennis Gates
5.  Rashon Burno
6.  Tim Anderson (although if Peevy liked Anderson he could have him as HC immediately and sack DL).

Think decent guys and small ball budget.  Its not going to be a Pitino or Howland or Dixon or Marshall LOL....

Oh come on, let depaul fans dream big, they have nothing else going for them.  There will be plenty of disappointment in the future, whether it be actual coaching hire or just the usual performance of the team.

BigJayStud: JLP will have to make a decision after next season. She should extend (Purnell) by one year with a very low buyout.

Well when fans mention Pitino - I laugh.  You really can't be taken seriously when you say Rick Pitino is a legit target for DPU.

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

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!

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.

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 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.
