    And with all of what's going on in NCAA basketball, there may be quite a few P5 openings this offseason

    Seeing what I've seen from Maggard, I wouldn't mind a sweet 16 run and a new hire.

    Only because I want the sweet 16 run. LOL

Hell, if we were to make the tournament and advance, I'd bet that Marlin's phone starts ringing. See Chris Beard from UALR a few years ago.
    Marlin has put his name in for several jobs and has gotten nothing back. The word is he is interested in the Ole Miss job again, and his agent has sent out feelers to gauge the interest. Regardless, I don't want my coaches retiring here in Lafayette on the golf course. If he gets the big payday, then great for him and his family. But, I won't be losing any sleep over it.

    An SEC job is something that would interest many fine coaches. There are not many of those around.

    Bob Marlin is a good guy, runs a clean program and graduates his athletes. His success will mean good things for our program whether he stays or goes.

    Maybe but it could also mean you hit the reset button like UALR did and I don't want to be in that boat again.

    Let's reset, if that's what it takes to make a run deep into the NCAA tournament.

    Seriously, we're playing to be mediocre so we don't have to reset? Go big or go home. Let's get deep into the tourney. I trust Maggard to figure the rest out.

    Ole Miss may be looking for an honorable older coach, but almost every power team wants a much younger successful coach.

    Bob still has to beat the field to get into the NCAA, and I'd think get past the round if 32. After all, he's actually got very few skins on the wall when it comes to P5 teams.

    He is not interested in the Ole Miss job. He might be interested in Alabama if Avery Johnson winds up with the Pelicans.

    Bob is a Mississippi State guy. No way he wants Ole Miss.

    I've never waivered in my support of Bob. I've always thought he was doing it the right way but sort of snake-bit. The game is finally paying him back this year. I hope and expect him to stay to continue to build the program.

    Memo, we hit the reset button under Coach Marlin twice. Did you have a problem riding in the boat then? He flipped his roster twice before winning 23 games in the 2013-14 season.

    Is that conjecture on your part? My source knows his agent and he had some interest in the job.

    UL Basketball Re: Basketball recruits

    I think Bob is a little long in the tooth without great success over multiple seasons. But Ole Miss might be looking for someone with some integrity after multiple failings of late.

    Bob marlin whether he stays or goes is a good thing at this point. I personally like his style of play because he makes a point to play defense first how basketball used to be played. Just win and get into the dance! Hopefully all this FBI stuff finishes up and there are a bunch of big schools that are ineligible for the tourney! That would make it very interesting lol!

    Nobody said that but thanks for kind of reading....The point was that there are usually two counterpoints to something happening. CajunT mentioned he doesn't want his coaches retiring here which is a pretty agreed upon point amongst the fan base, however, the counterpoint to that is with major bursts of success our coaches will be the first to be poached for larger programs. With that comes risks of what happened at UALR where you are first to worst. That doesn't mean I'm advocating for us to not make a run....LOL

    Out of curiosity, where did you see he might be interested in the pelicans or vice versa?
