Evaluating the hoops coaching hires
Arguably no sports topic has been hotter for the past month than the coaching carousel in college basketball.
Calling it a carousel seems a bit tame. This has been no children's ride. It darn near has been a carnival thrill ride, and it has made more than a few stomachs queasy along the way.
The Razorbacks then hired Dana Altman and held an introductory news conference, only to see him back out a day later and return to Creighton. The coach the Hogs called next and eventually hired was John Pelphrey, who had been the top target of the South Florida search.
Dizzy yet? We'll try to sort through some of it here, as we grade some of the more high-profile coaching hires.
