I don’t see St Johns forcing Mullins out and not getting a big name like Bobby Hurley.

I doubt they have a replacement ready. I don't think the administration wanted to do this, based on the signals they had been sending up until today. Somebody convinced them, correctly, that Mullin couldn't coach. What he did this year with that talent was a travesty worse than anything Ollie did.

They returned almost their whole rotation, added Heron, and fell 15 spots in KenPom. The Heron effect notwithstanding, that's so atrocious.

I don't see Bobby leaving P5 for non-P5, especially one with a similar budget, unless he's just not happy there for some reason.

Shocked
Shocked I tell you
Who could’ve ever foreseen that this wasn’t destined to work out?
Who’s that transfer they just landed?
Tabor, but Dan Hurley probably isn't going to want to be taking BH's kids.

Does St. John's have a plan, my guess is no. The only reason I'm totally not dismissing Hurley ending up there is the Hurley's love northeast/tri-state hoops.

Sidebar story: What a flipping wasteland the Pac-12 is becoming for hoops. 'Zona is looking at a long dry spell once the FBI kicks in. AZ State loses Hurley. UCLA is a mess. Washington is probably in the best shape, but they're kinda where they're always at. Oregon and Utah are fine I guess.

But what a dump.

You forgot to mention it's Tucson and the co-eds.
Or Tempe, but most serious coaches aren't chasing after coeds. Even if Bobby Hurley's a dislikeable Pukie, he's never appeared to be a coach prioritizing coeds over seriously coaching. Now, some potential ASU recruits might allocate a bit of time to the former.
