    Wes Miller Watch 2018-2019

    Pulling for Wake to hire Wes Miller after Danny is fired this spring

    His UNCG Spartans are off to a fast 6-1 start (soon to be 7-1 later tonight) with their only loss being a 6-pt loss @ surprise upstart LSU

    UNCG started the season ranked 93 by Kenpom (versus Wake @ 94) and now find themselves ranked 66 (versus Wake at 127) - could coaching be the difference here???

    Big game on Saturday 12/1 @ #10 Kentucky

    Get em Wes!

    Francis Alonso is an amazing college player. He would be an extra bonus as a graduate transfer if we are smart enough to land Wes. They are really, really good. So is Furman.

    Alonso is a baller, but he wonít have any eligibility left to play a 5th year. He scored 31 last year when they got beat by Manningís Deacs.

    biggest question mark with millerís track record (which is good) is that all of his success has come with alonso leading the team. wish we had a chance to see how well the team does next year once he graduates.

    He has an interesting profile. He has been a head coach for 9 years but is only 39. His teams have gotten better pretty much every year. At Bradley, his first team was 323rd in Kenpom, right now they stand at 102nd with wins over SMU and Penn State. He has also recruited at a big time program (Marquette under Crean). The big con is he hasn't broken through to the tournament yet, and he has only worked in the midwest.

    Iíll add him in there.

    I checked Bradleyís Kenpom after you mentioned him and was impressed.

    Either Dave Odum or Skip Prosserís son have proven to be competitive with one and two star players

    Ryan Odom- great record but only 3 years as a head coach. If he puts together another conference title and NCAA run he certainly would warrant consideration.
    Steve Forbes (ETSU)- guy may not be an option due to Bruce Pearl ties, but also has Gregg Marshall ties. 204-62 as a head coach and only 53. Has both recruited at a high level (SEC) as an assistant and proven to be an ultra-successful head coach. Not sure why he isn't getting mentioned anywhere. His record is ridiculous.

    I'll add them on the list this afternoon. I'll also add Thad Matta's time at OSU as well.

    At this point, I'd be fine with Mark Prosser.

    Wake should go after Pete Bell. He did great for the Western University Dolphins

    Ron Cottrell. Already proven this season that he can win in our off campus arena.

    Um, no. Not just to him but most on these lists.
    Thad Matta is your first call.
    Kick tires on Matt Painter, Dana Altman, and Ben Howland.

    Thad Mattís yeah.

    Matt Painter and Dana Altman, besides the fact of ďwhy would they leave Purdue and Oregon to come to wake forestĒ, are making more than Danny is currently. By a significant margin.

    Earl grant and Nate Oats would both be good hires imo.
