I use the word 'coach' politely, but in all seriousness what is going on in Bloomfield? We are one more off court issue away from having Crean becoming the next head coach of ECU .

Crean was jealous because he saw those two hug his son after practice.

I think it's about time Kevin Ollie talked with Yogi Ferrell about transferring to Storrs...;)

Crean's problems should make VCU fans nervous, because if he's out, then Shaka's maybe the most logical target for IU.

And yeah, Shaka's already said he'd only leave for Wisconsin. But I think we can all smell the bulls--t of that statement two counties away. IU is one of the great programs in college basketball history, and the chance to be the guy who really returns it to its previous greatness would be impossible for him to pass up.

If I'm the Celtics, I'm a little nervous as well.

He's only signed through 2019, too.

I see a Nov 2012 article that says the buyout was 8 million for the next 3 seasons ending at end of this season. Next year is 1 million. Half mill the rest of the way

$14,000,000 buyout.

The first people they need to fire is the folks who rubber stamped that contract.

Indiana is really up the creek either way.


It dropped to $8 million this offseason.

IU is a storied job, but not more storied than the Celtics. Stevens isn't leaving Boston for a college team until he's sure he can't win in the pros.

It's going to be awfully tough for the Celtics to contend any time soon with the way the roster is currently constructed.

I hate Crean. Dude couldn't win in the Big East and slimes his way to 1 good season at Indiana. Reality hits hard.

With the lack of performance and now these off-court issues, the fan base seems to be "Breaking Away" from Crean.

He did win in the Big East - won 10 or 11 games in conference all three years. And he seemingly was on the way to building Indiana with two very strong seasons where they ended in the Sweet Sixteen.

But to go from 29-7 and first in the Big Ten to the bottom starting to fall out last season, he's grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory.

When players start driving over each other and that's not even the worst story of your weekend, things are going poorly.

crean and thad matta are both such hacks....especially the talent that comes into OSU. The guys can't win in march to save their own lives. Forever sweet 16 flameouts.

Matta took OSU to the NCAA championship game in the 2006/2007 season, Final Four in the 2011/2012 season and to the Elite 8 in the 2012/2013 season.

And, to be fair, didn't Crean take Marquette to the Final Four in 2003?

Now, I don't think either are great coaches, but I think it's a strange suggestion.

Yeah that's pretty good but the guy has had recruiting classes just short of Calipari during some years and has not won the big one and has flamed with some good teams. He's not a "hack" but he's not a great coach at all.

I could see Shaka saying no to IU, simply because its such a powerhouse. I think he wants to be the face and name of a program that doesn't necessarily have its own famous history

U can add the Wiscy coach to the piss poor B10 showings in March. Last year OK, but his record DURING the season and in the Dance are vastly diff. Hope D Stone has looked at that.

Anyone related (even if by marriage) to the Harbaugh's is a in my book
He certainly hasn't performed very well at IU but making a ton of money to be mediocre.

Was it Crean or Dwayne Wade?

Apparently, the kid who got hit (Devin Davis) was to blame in the incident (per police). He purposefully jumped in front of the car, as everyone does when they've had a few to drink. Even a worse look.
