    Next Kentucky Coach After Cal?

    I ask this because there isn't an easy answer. I am interested to see who everybody would want, minus Brad Stevens because he isn't coming.

    This is tough....

    Guy I would love, that most wouldn't want is Bruce Pearl. He's built for a job like Kentucky IMO.

    Off the top of my head list....

    Gregg Marshall
    Chris Holtmann
    Chris Mack (no chance, if he ends up at UL next season)
    Mike White
    Mark Few (highly unlikely)
    Danny Hurley
    Bobby Hurley

    Gregg Marshall is a different cat.

    He's #1 but I don't see him leaving the Celtics.

    If it wasn't for his wife I think he'd have a great shot but with her I don't see it happening.

    My number one guy would be Jay Wright but I am not sure if we could get him. Young guys there isn't one that really stands out which is what makes this so hard.

    I think Buzz Williams would do a good job with all that is being the UK basketball coach.

    Of course, Stevens would be my top. I like Few and Donovan as well. I doubt any of them end up in Lexington.

    Whoever is after Cal will have the deck stacked against them to say the least. They likely won't have the success recruiting and won't have the personality. Good luck to them.

    Christian Laettner has had his share of financial woes in recent years. He could probably use a job that pays well.
