There are UCLA boosters who want Gottfried because he's a link back to the Harrick era when Gottfried was an assistant there. But is the administration interested in going back to the Harrick era? The violation that got him fired from UCLA was minor, but Harrick's time at Georgia showed some major violations.
Kerry Keating was the top recruiter under Howland before he left in 2007 to take the head job at Santa Clara. If Keating were more successful at Santa Clara, I could see him as a candidate. But Santa Clara has one postseason appearance (a CIT championship) in Keating's 6 seasons at Santa Clara. No chance he gets the UCLA job with that resume.
Chris Collins to Northwestern is a done deal, sources told CBSSports. Announcement expected later today.
What former player get's added to K's bench?

Well, I mean, that’s what it is. I doodoo and then listen to Katy Perry.
Probably just means Nate James is elevated to "real assistant" status.
If he retires this summer, I'm pretty sure he loses his spot as committee chair for next year, so I doubt that happens (you have to be employed in some capacity within college athletics administration to be on the committee, which almost cost the old UConn AD his spot when he was fired mid-term, but they came up with some job to put him into in order to remain on the committee).
Good point. Wellman could announce his retirement effective June 2014 to give WFU a year to replace him, and then work in a transitional role. If WFU moves to bring someone in for a transition period from January-June or so, they could still make the move on Bzdelik next March.

Joke isn't funny. Never was.
106.7 just reported that shaka smart rumored to be working on a deal with MINNESOTA????? WTF?
"Turgeon has 3 key guys on current roster - Allen, Dez, and Jake - that have not improved." -Orioleterp
Talking about it on 1057 too....7 years 21 mill
I've seen nothing on twitter.
wow. that's a long time for a coach whose never coached in a power conference. That salary puts him between 5 and 10 in the country right?
Straight bullshit. Also rumors of Spike Lee being a key player in negotiations.
Reports that Shaka was picked up in a private plane that just landed in Minneapolis.
Even with sanctions coming, I find it hard to believe that any coach would choose Minn over UCLA, but especially a young black coach.
more $? Apparently UCLA is cheap
I think this is familiarity with Minnesota's AD, who they hired from VCU. And Teague can guarantee him more time to set up the program than UCLA can.
Plus, UCLA has had a reputation historically of not being willing to pay the big money for a head coach. If Minnesota is offering $3 million / year for 7 years, I can believe UCLA won't match or exceed it. Especially the contract length.
As of March 2012, USA Today lists 6 coaches making more than $3 million / year: Cal, Pitino, K, Donovan, Self, Izzo. Matta and Buzz Williams (??) are just behind that at 2.8 million.
USA TODAY requested all forms of compensation and/or acquired the school's federal tax return or other state disclosure data.
A quick googling suggests that Howland was making about 2M per year and Tubby 1.7M.
Shaka grew up in Wisconsin and went to college in central Ohio. I don't get the feeling the racial makeup of the community bothers him much. Plus, I don't think Minnesota's white population is like Alabama's white population. Or even Boston's.
Even though Jimmy Dykes' hour long rant on UCLA basketball was annoying last night, his basic point that it's not as good a job on the inside as it may look from the outside probably has some merit. I think there are factors that go into a lot of these decisions that the average college b-ball fan isn't aware of.
Shaka's already the Prince of coaches: small, energetic and of ambiguous race. Might as well move to the same state!
Katz said some stuff on SVP about the UCLA job that shocked me. They flew commercial to Arizona, for instance. He didn't have a private plane or charter for recruiting. Stuff like that. If they want to be treated like a top-5 job by the coaches, they better support the coach like one.
Yeah, I'm dumb. I was thinking about southerner Anthony Grant when I made that comment, not Shaka Smart.
They already squeezed in Capel.
