Rumor: Bill Self to coach Bulls next season
« on: April 05, 2019, 02:54:51 pm »

Just read NBC Sports website that there is a fairly substantial rumor that Bill Self will leave KU and be the coach of the Chicago Bulls next season.

If true, who would be the most logical candidates for the KU job?  I wonder if this could potentially threaten the Arkansas job search?

The KU job obviously ranks very high but perhaps the looming threat of NCAA/FBI investigation may drop that a few notches.  If this is true, it's probably a sign that there is an impending storm in Lawrence.

I just wish Bill Self would consider coming south to Fayetteville as opposed going north to Chicago.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves with the size of the impact... Jeff Long will be doing the hiring.

Self will hide out in the NBA until any sanctions coming his way are over then he will slither his way back into the college basketball world.

I would think Marshall would be one of their top targets.  Of course Beard could be, but there would be a lot of upside to Marshall for them.

Billy Donovan to Kansas.

If Self were to leave, I don’t think either Beard or Marshall would be interested.

Marshall seems like the kind of guy who would bristle at the suggestion that kansas is a better job than wherever he’s coaching. He’d rather make WSU the in-state power than jump to ku.

Beard, on the other hand, just won the Big 12 at Texas Tech. He’s proven he can beat kansas with Self. What’s his motivation to join them when he can just keep beating them?

Not that I think those guys won’t take a different job ever, but I don’t think ku would be appealing to either right now.

Yeah, they aren't worried about paying BB coach more than FB coach.

I love you, Hogville.

Following a likely hall of fame coach with a national title on his resume means expectations will be sky high.

The FBI is poking around.

Their current schools are both in a good position, and both can also pretty much pick whatever open job they want and name their price.

In theory, of course ku is a better job than Wichita State or Texas Tech. But right now, I don’t think either would want to make the move.

But kansas alum and Topeka native Mark Turgeon probably would jump at the opportunity. I think he’d do well there, too.

If Self were to leave, and there was even a rumor that KU's AD was talking to Marshall, the KU fanbase would burn Lawrence to the ground.

Only thing I think when hearing that rumor is I wonder if Issac McBride would get out of his LOI with them and maybe our new coach would recruit him.

Long hired Jamie Dixon at Pitt. Wouldn't be surprised if that's the direction KU goes.

There is nothing threatening or incriminating Bill Self. Sworn testimony actually was he was totally unaware. He would never consider the Bulls unless they land Zion and even then it is 98% unlikely.

Long will find himself looking again in a hurry if Self runs to the NBA and they don't do better than Jaime Dixon.
