    Do you think UNC would pony up enough money for a first year buyout for a guy with no ties to Chapel Hill and pay him $5+M/year?

    How about a crazy name? Kenny Smith. He has been inching towards coaching or management positions.

    If Oats gets a title in next couple of years, there's no reason to think he can't just stay in Tuscaloosa and turn them into a juggernaut. You're just chasing history at UNC and Bama can and will match any amount of dough thrown at Oats.

    From a personal stand point, I'd rather live in Tuscaloosa vs CH.

    That is a hell of a take.

    Right, unless he wants to play second to football his entire career, I doubt he stays at Bama if UNC or someone gives him a call.

    I'm hoping Roy, K, Boeheim, and for that matter Dabo are all replaced by wholly incompetent, unlucky coaches who openly cheat, get caught, and lose anyway

    There is no one to do the catching. The NCAA is the wild west.

    That may be, but who knows his motivations. Having come up through college and now made plenty of money, he may think thereís cache in coaching only a premier program like the Celtics or Duke that canít be found coaching the Denver Nuggets. And I would agree.

    Ultimately the speculation is fun but useless till we see what plays out.

    There is more cache in winning an NBA title than there is in winning a NCAA title. And again, more money to boot. Not to mention he has been a head coach in the pros for longer than he was a head coach in college.

    Dude I lived in Tuscaloosa for a year (went to Bama my freshman year) and this is a scorcher. T-Town is a ghost town on non-football weekends. Or at least it was back in 2004-05. Way more to do in CH and the surrounding area.

    Stevens has made over $30 million from the Celtics. He's in his 8th season in Boston. He signed an extension in 2020. The length of the extension is unknown, but its believed to run through at least 2026. Stevens has made more money than he could ever spend, and if he returned to college, Stevens would command a salary commensurate with Calipari's $9 million+ per year (hilarious that KY paid Coach Cal to finish 8th in the SEC this past year). So, a) Stevens has made more money than he could ever spend; b) the colleges that would be seeking Stevens would offer him a salary at least equal to the money he's making the Celts.

    If Stevens leaves the NBA, it won't be a money decision. My guess is that Stevens won't leave the NBA until he wins a title. When/if he does, I could see Stevens returning to college to join Larry Brown as coaches that have won NCAA and NBA titles. Not going to happen anytime soon.

    Tuscaloosa is a fun town and has grown significantly since 2005 but, yeah, Chapel Hill has much more going for it and far more to do in every direction. Football weekends, though...no comparison.
