My 2 cents, Mack is definitely a smart guy. I am sure after the tourney is over he is going to look really hard at what is going on with former opposing coaches who moved on from smaller schools. I have to wonder if Shaka Smart would head to Texas over staying at VCU now if he had it to do over again. That guy was a king at VCU and was getting pretty good money. Then there is Mark Few. Guy is getting paid, it wasn't always that way.

I think that Mark Few has a great job. I want Mack to be our Mark Few. Few gets paid a little more, but not much.
I said it before, the jobs that really scare me are Indiana and Louisville. Mack could keep his house and make 4 million or more a year. And the private jet means he won't ever miss any event he wants to get too.
He recruits this area well too, and it would hurt us to have him at one of those schools. I think Matta and Miller made some pretty smart choices by going not just for money but well established programs. I am sure it is a fun life. I bet Miller's life is a blast. Those guys can get anything they want. But honestly, if we can get Mack closer to 2 million a year, he can pretty much have anything he wants too. And he could coach here a long time.
He has young girls, Xavier is doing well, he is raising his family in his home town and still making a boat load of money. With a stellar group of recruits coming in and the wind at his back after another masterful tournament run, I don't see this as a time where he gets antsy. But if Indiana calls, you at least pick up that phone. The thought of LSU makes me laugh. They could double his salary and I can't see him going to LSU.
At some point we are going to have to come closer to what other Big East programs are paying their coaches. Buzz at Marquette was one of the highest paid coaches in D-1 before he left. Still curious about that. After buzz left it was Thompson being the highest paid in the Big East, around 3 million. I don't know the latest numbers, but I am guessing Jay Wright may have surpassed him by now.
This is a great job for coach Mack.RIP Brian Dargin McCormick

The headline is wrong. She didn't get kicked out. And IU should DEFINITELY hire Gregg Marshall. But that assumes winning is important to them.
