Given how the past 4 years have gone, I’m sitting here trying to imagine exactly who would be considered a “lateral hire” for Archie Miller.Huh? That’s the reality of the situation given the current financial climate. You can try and hire a Brad Stevens or a Scott Drew all you want, odds are it’s not happening. Firing Archie Miller given the current financial struggles is likely going to net only a lateral hire. Archie clearly isn’t the answer going forward, but is Fife, Alford, etc?
Among those who have coached in the B10...Groce? Lickliter? Ellerbe?
I get the dilemma here. Do we roll the dice with somebody (cheaper) now under budget constraints or do we wait another (likely excruciating) year and maybe be in a better position next year to hire a higher-dollar coach?
