Coaching searches are wild goose chases. Indiana’s is now finally resolved, but it wasn’t before a week and a half’s worth of rumors — from Steve Alford, to Billy Donovan, to Chris Mack, and everything in between.
National media members and pay-sites seemed to buy into the Alford smoke early, though this blog was able to trace those back to his own camp. But, really, Archie Miller wasn’t a big time favorite in anyone’s mind throughout the coaching search. It was Mack, Alford, Donovan, and Tony Bennett grabbing the headlines.
So, perhaps, who knew?
A North Carolina Central beat writer — who talked to a security guard during the first four in Dayton 10 days ago.
Scoop alert: Talked to security guard at arena. Rumor is Archie doesn't want State gig, holding out for Indiana. Security guards know stuff.— Jonas Pope IV (@JEPopeIV) March 15, 2017
Security guards, man.
What a wild, wild week.
