    Can’t argue with that.

    I am sure Billy Hicks is an outstanding coach too and I don't want him either. Whoever we hire will be a bit of a gamble, but I would lean toward someone who has had some level of success at a D-1 program.

    Informed opinion or educated guess?

    Is NKU a better job than Winthrop for Kelsey?

    If he wants to live in Cincinnati again, it is.

    I figured something would have come out Monday about this job. I hope a decision is made soon.

    Don Owen tweeted that NKU is interviewing the following in Atlanta today:

    - An asst. coach from the ACC
    - An asst. coach from the PAC 12
    - Pat Kelsey

    He also noted that Chris Shumate was not in Atlanta.

    In a cryptic move he also retweeted a previous tweet of his own that linked to a story from the WV Gazette about WV PG and current Florida asst. coach Darris Nichols. When I asked him about it he said he was sentimental.

    All of which is to say, it looks like they are narrowing down the pool of candidates.

    Hearing Kelsey and Shumate are out. Strange.
