Nope. Time to do this correctly, for a change. Beilein, while a good coach, would be a band aid, at best. Why would you advocate such a shortsighted approach, especially since you were so slow to recognize that Miller wasn’t capable of building our program back up?
1. IU needs to win and win now first and foremost. If the new coach is there 20+ years then its obviously a cherry on top. But outside Stevens (who I have serious doubts about landing), there simply isn't a better coach available than Beilein. Build the program back up and you're in a much better place to make an even better hire 5-7 years down the road. IU cannot afford another 4-5 years of purgatory. If Beilein is a band-aid so be it, IU will be back to the top.
2. Wasn't ever slow to recognize Archie's capabilities. From the entirety I said Archie was going to get and deserved four years. All along I said year 4 was going to be his make or break year, after year 4 is when you fire or extend a coach. Some coaches hit it right out of the gate, some take 3-4 years to get the ball rolling(Wright/Beilein/Bennett, etc). But year 4 is a clear indicator of a coaches trajectory.
