Is former UALR coach Beard pretty much a slam dunk to come here?
« on: February 03, 2018, 04:57:29 pm »

That's what I'm hearing if we decide to pull the trigger. The local and national media is about to turn on Anderson if they lose either of these upcoming home games..Especially the Vanderbilt game!

He’s at his dream job. Why would he leave? We’ll have a nice pool of great coaches to chose from that are better than MA

ROFLMAO!!  Dude, they just gave Anderson a two year extension,  he's not going anywhere.   And still the majority of fans on here still want to keep him as coach, it's only the sane ones that didn't want Anderson in the first place and those that wanted him fired at least 3 years ago that have the sense that God gave them.  Please let this nightmare hurry up and end!  Wow, another 2 full years of this crap.

Spoke to a person who knows him well from UALR days-  Duke is his dream job. But we could get him now until coach K retires, and maybe he'd decide to stay.

Vandy can beat Ark in Fayetteville. And it probably will.

At this I predict we won't make the tournament.  We need to make a change like we did with CBB.  I'm tried of hearing the same kind of stuff Bert did. " we're getting better" " need to improve in ....fill in the blank". These kids are not playing inspired Ball. We're going through the motions. Until late we make the change we'll get more the same losing crap.

Agree. No NCAAT for Ark in Anderson's 7th season. Made in 2 times in 7 years barring minor miracle to get in this year.

I hope Anderson gets it together..Better have a good one lined up if we pull the trigger. Beard would be an upgrade, but also the Vanderbilt coach Bryce Drew would be a good one if we could get him..Lets see what happens....

Mike will not be fired at the end of the season. He has more lives than Houston Nutt. Notice how the say much of the same things. All that’s left to say is, I called that play Chuck. Disclaimer: Mike is not as sleazy personally. The first comment applies to coaching only.

Beard coached at Texas Tech for 10 years. He was happy to get back there to be closer to his family.
The only way I see him leaving is for a step up to a bigger/ better program. Coming to Arkansas is a lateral move in a worse basketball conference.

At some point we should realize we haven't been relevant in basketball in over 2 decades.
We have the potential to be a great program but that doesn't mean all these coaches are going to leave their currently successful programs to come to Arkansas. Especially Beard, who was thrilled to get back to Texas Tech. UNLV used to be relevant, too - but Beard didn't hesitate leaving them to get to Texas Tech.

Will Tech pay him $2.6 million? $3 million? Let's make them prove it. He knows Arkansas and would come IMO.

I would love for him to come here - I go to UALR games and watched him coach / and you see what's happened to that team after he left. He's really a great coach and his teams are fun to watch.

I'm not saying he would up and leave, but I do think he would listen. The upside at Arkansas is too great. His statistics indicate he would do very well at Arkansas. He's not the only good, young coach out there, but I am interested in him and know he could do well.

And we'll need to give 'em a few years to catch on to Mike's highly complex fast forty system.

I hope we don't have to wait too many more years for them, then they promptly transfer out or go pro.

He obviously loves it there - he was there for 10 years as an associate head coach, his family is near by and he left UNLV to go back.

You are correct.  Mike is here to stay for another year or two at least no matter how much we want to complain. 

As bad as Mike is at coaching I do think if he would recruit more of his type of players he would be a pretty good coach.  Next years team because of all of the longer better athletes has a chance of becoming a true Mike type team.  Let see if he can keep Gafford and add more pieces to make the next few years the best Mike has had at Arkansas.  If not expect to see a change.

I grew up west of Lubbock. I have a lot of friends who are Texas Tech boosters. Chris Beard will not leave there anytime soon if at all. He coached there under Pat Knight and is very close to Bob Knight who still lives in Lubbock.  From what I've been told he consults with Knight on a regular basis and is thrilled to have him available for advice.
