Congrats to Coach Chris Collins on the head coaching job at Northwestern! Watching this guy at the coaching clinics the last 5 years and on the side lines to games I have seen over the years, I can say Chris is an intense guy who knows basketball in and out! Hey...he learned from the best...Coach K! Northwestern is getting a great guy to come in and take over. Gonna miss seeing him on the court next season but wish him well in his new journey.
With all the rumors floating around out there such as Capel looking at the ODU position, Paulus looking to head to Northwestern, and Duke looking at Jay Williams... it gets you thinking! I could see Capel taking the ODU job. I could also easily see Paulus take a step up from video coordinator to assistant coach as well. And hey I would love to see Jay Williams on the Duke bench!! I think that would be HUGE for recruiting! I just don't easily see Jay giving up that comfortable ESPN job he has to go into the stress os recruiting and being an assistant coach. But I hope I'm wrong and Jay ends up on the Duke bench! For now it's all rumors so we shall wait and see what happens. But hey...we got bigger things to focus on right now...there is a big game Friday night! GO DUKE!!! BEAT MICHIGAN STATE!!!
