Extremely Quiet on the Northern Front

Rice offered Tulane job

Turns it Down

RCA Flat Panel Indoor HD AntennasThere hasn't been a lot of news out there about Siena and its head coaching position. I sense that is because the Saints are waiting for some of the bigger schools to make their hires. Or more likely, there is someone high on Siena's list waiting to hear back from their A choice.

It makes sense that is current Cornell coach Steve Donahue. He is now rumored to be the front-runner at BC. And it would seem to me he would be the frontrunner at Siena should he not end up in Chestnut Hill.

The shock of the day came from Chicago where Oliver Purnell signed on with the Demons. As so often is the case, Purnell found out that he really couldn't compete with Duke and Carolina in the ACC. But someone explain to me how that is going to be different at Depaul. Only difference is he won't be recruiting the same region as most of his conference foes. But he's still going to play second fiddle to Syracuse, UCONN, Georgetown and the likes in the Big East - and realistically he might be third chair. But hey its $15 million over 7 years. Who is going to argue that?

So who becomes a possibility at Clemson? Mike Rice? Jeff Capel? Brian Gregory? Cliff Warren? Cliff Ellis? Dave Odom? Chris Mooney? Brad Stevens? Bobby Cremins? There are a lot of capable guys.

As far as assistants go - It does seem Jimmy Patsos is staying at Loyola. But Danny Hurley is apparently pursuing his brother Bobby to join him on the staff at Wagner. That combo could be a deadly recruiting duo for the Seahawks.
