    I have no idea on what he will do but Marquette is only 90 miles from Chicago.

    Amazing a Coach can inspire his players to stick around for 4 years and develop into a cohesive unit. Oh....

    I don't know that Moser is a guy who only chases $$$. My understanding is that he comes from a very wealthy family that essentially built the suburb of Naperville. He is also of the age when DePaul was Chicago basketball and may covet the job. Heard he went to Ray Meyer Basketball Camp (so did I) as a kid.

    Not sure what Leitao was making, but heard there was very little buy out to get rid of him and I bet he was probably making about half of the $2 mil Purnell made.

    My bet would be Moser ends up at Marquette.


    On a side note, I don't really "get" the value drivers for coaches. I can list them easily enough: cash, more resources, higher level of recruits, increased competition.

    But on the flip side: Moser can easily develop a program at Loyola (and already has) where he competes for the conference title every year, consistently coaches players for their entire college career, and make NCAA runs every so often. He isn't going to have a hot-seat at Loyola - maybe ever. And he's probably compensated at a level in which his family will never be wanting.

    Loyola seems like a pretty plum gig for him. Is the potential increased glory worth the risk of flaming out at a new program?

    There's probably about a 1,000 coaches that could give you a first hand answer to that.

    Kinda like Xavier. Its takes a very special person to not chase the big job with the big dollars.

    I honestly don't get why Mack left. Was making really good money and easily could have stayed and retired at X with more money than he or his children would ever need. I guess I just answered my own question...LOL

    Are you married? If so, you should know why he left.

    Ben Johnson just landed the head coaching gig at Minnesota. I guess Steele's staff isn't as brutal as some on this board think or other schools are even dumber than X!

    Iím guessing it is more of the latter part of the second sentence considering Minnesotaís track record
