One of the biggest names in college hoops retired

Only coach to have 400+ wins at 2 schools. Pretty impressive.

Another big name is calling it quits, too - Lon Kruger.

After Big Rick left, I know we wanted Kruger to come to SLC, but he wasn’t dumb enough to try and follow that act.


I’ll bet Sancho is pleased with this contract for Hubert Davis at UNC…

Details Emerge From Hubert Davis’ Contract At North Carolina (


Just last week, Hubert Davis finalized a deal to become the new head coach of the North Carolina men’s basketball program. The Tar Heels alum and long-time assistant takes over for the recently retired Roy Williams and will lead the school into a new era.

On Monday, more details emerged from Davis’s incentive-laden contract with UNC.

the new Tar Heels head coach inked a five-year deal with a base salary of $400,000 annually. However, he will be eligible for up to $1,075,000 in bonuses each year, including an additional $250,000 for winning an NCAA championship.

When all is said in done, the total value of Davis’s contract will be $1 million in the first year and is expected to increase by $100,000 each year of his deal.

I like this. With lowered attendance and other changes coming, I hope this helps re-normalize the approach to coach compensation. I like the base + incentives approach because it pays for results (without making it a Ricky Williams incentive only type deal). It’s fair to the coach, it rewards success, it’s reasonable for donors and the school. Just makes sense.

Wow, #2 on the GOAT list after Wooden.

With all the coaches out in the Coach K tree, it seems weird that Scheyer would be the top candidate. I guess we’ll see what happens. This past season was awful; I hope he goes out on a high note.
