Coach Shuffle

Kentucky Coaching List

Posted in Basketball,Hirings by onepageguide on March 26, 2007


The University of Kentucky is putting together their list of potential coaches to replace Tubby Smith who moved onto the University of Minnesota. it includes a list of who’s who of coaching. The list includes Tom Izzo from Michigan State, Gonzaga head coach Mark Few, Florida coach Billy Donovan, Marquette’s Tom Crean, Memphis’ John Calipari and Notre Dame’s Mark Brey. These are some of the hottest up and coming coaches in the college basketball ranks at the moment. To many coaching at the University of Kentucky would be a dream job with the major support from the university and surrounding community.

Who is the Kentucky’s top choice? Many people are saying Tom Izzo who has done a tremendous job at Michigan State and has a strong class of freshman currently. Izzo has shown strong loyalty to Michigan State, but potentially could leave with the right mix of money and support from Kentucky. It will be interesting to see if Kentucky gets the coach they are looking for or must settle for a second tier coach at the moment.

    I like Mark Few. He has done a great job and has not always had top talent

    With all the talk about Rick Pitino, Billy Donavan and others of their era, I was wondering if the name John Pelphery has come up at all. Seeing he was one of unforgetables in the Pitino tenure, worked with Donavan at both Marshall and Florida, not to mention the least of the fact that he took USA to the NCAA last season and to the NIT this one. Seems to me he would be a worthy candidate for consideration.
