Well it wasn't a very appealing job to begin with after the way Pearl left. Counzo was their 3rd choice if im not mistaken and they weren't exactly shooting high. I doubt they were hell bent on hiring a coach that hasn't ever been to the tourney to begin with.
If/when they do fire Counzo you honestly believe a promising coach from any D1 school is gonna take the job? Back to hiring an appalacian st. type coach.
The reason they were crippled for the last hire and got stuck with Gonzo is because of the sanctions and show-cause order; by the time they get around to hiring a new guy those penalties will have nearly expired... they may have to let him have 1 more year, as their probation ends in August of 2015.
They get decent talent and rank in the Top 10 in attendance even when they suck; so I see no reason why they couldn't attract a good coach this time around.
