Just remember guys Steve Alford is now available or we bring in his x asst Muncie Born Craig Neal. We can probably try to get another Dambrot as it is quite likely the following MAC coaches may not return next yr Steve Hawkins WMU, Mark Montgomery NIU,Rob Murphy EMU & Saul Phillips Ohio. How about x Butler coaches Brandon Miller or Todd Lickliter? Or maybe x NBA coach Scott Skiles who I think would be a great college coach & would bring in fans just to watch Scott get Ts if we don't play well. Any other suggestions for a coach with a good salary?
You want one of the above mentioned? Save your allowance and break open the piggy banks. Now get on your knees and pray to the good Lord above and hope he is a Cardinal fan. Then if it happens, kiss your ass good bye because it will be a sure sign of the apocalypse.

The key is spending the money. Doesn't really matter who you spend on, or how they are chosen. For example, it would have been better to pay Whitford even more than he actually accepted...so we are told.
Todd Lickliter just relocated to Evansville last year, as a first-year assistant on Walter McCarty's staff. He's made a lot of money in the past, so $$ might not be as big an issue for him as it would for others. He has the same personality as Whitford does though, which has been a turnoff to many. He of course saw us 2x in person this season.
If an opening arises, I'd rather see us explore guys experienced in actually winning games and x's & o's as a head coach like Greg Tonagel (Indiana Wesleyan) or Scott Heady (Carmel HS/Marian Univ) and have them hire hot-shot younger assistants who will burn up the recruiting trails.
I really liked Scott Skiles for the job until I see he is high on the list of former NBA players with the most illegitimate children. Its said to be 6 or 8 so forget him just as Brandon Miller per cardfan.
