    Nick Van Exel or Andy Kennedy should be in the running.

    Why would UC want Any Kenendy back?

    He’s reached his peak there but then again, it’s not like they are asking him to go.

    Matta is intriguing. Didn't he have health issues though?

    What happened to all the NKU folks who posted here? Hardly any Norse conversation these days.

    Turns out NKU ended up with a really tough opponent in the NCAA tourney, lol Also, it was suspicious when Brannen tweeted his “thanks to NKU for the great 4 years recently”.... some speculation he was leaving, but nothing ever came from it....

    As to the topic, I would looove for Pitino to get hired at UC – it would be such a blast!

    What is there currently to talk about? Create a thread about something going on with NKU and I bet there will be some traffic.

    I believe it was his anniversary for coming to NKU. Bad timing with the speculation going on.

    Kennedy did a great fill in job. Nancy Z cleaned the Huggy House and that is why Andy was let go.

    What is there to say? As an NKU fan, I don't want to lose JB, but having a head coach that other programs want means our program is in good shape. UC can do a lot worse than hiring JB to lead their program.

    My thoughts exactly. If other school's aren't trying to poach NKU's Coach, that is a bad thing. NKU should probably start putting some nice buyout clauses in their contract to get some money. Actually does JB have one? Haven't seen anything about that anywhere.

    If Brannen would get the UC job, it will make it very hard for me to continue to dislike them.

    Also, wonder who NKU would target? Chris Shumate? Luke Murray? Would they go after a guy like Joel Justus? Or how about David Padgett?

    Well Brannen is a top candidate at UC it seems, in the past it seemed there were a few NKU insiders who would have chimed in with information on that. No need to start a new thread about that.

    This name won't make sense to most but I would consider putting former Buckeye Chris Jent on the list of candidates. While he's spent nearly all of his career at the professional level in the NBA, I am curious to see if he would be interested in returning to college coaching as a head coach. He definitely knows X's and O's.
