Reports (aka, rumors) throughout KS and OK tonight that Danny Manning may become the next Head Coach at Tulsa. Following in the steps of Bill Self.

Danny deserves a HC job though so if he takes one, his new team will become my second favorite.

Well to be fair Hinson is the Players Op. So technically he isn't a bench guy. If he has to leave to get a head start on the SIU job, then so be it. Great for Barry!

As for Danny, it will pain me greatly to see him leave the KU bench but in reality we need him to take a head coaching job some place if he ever wants to be the successor to Bill Self. The Tulsa job would actually be perfect for Danny. It is a very good mid-major job that is in close proximity to Lawrence. If Scott Sutton were to get the job, then I think the Oral Roberts job would be a good one for Danny also.

I agree as much as I'd hate to see him go. A framed front page of the Topeka Capital-Journal from 1988 hangs to my right as I post. The top picture is Danny driving on Stacy King and the bottom picture is Milt Newton going up for a layup. The headline is "Kansas Wins NCAA Championship." I've had it on a wall where ever I'ved lived since that day.

True but Danny's recruiting efforts and work with the bigs should not be under-rated. It takes a team effort on the floor and on the bench. Would Aldrich have been what he was without Manning? Withey? I doubt it regarding Withey.

I think Self would have won there and been able to get Nebraska their first ever NCAA tournament win, but he obviously wouldn't have experienced the same level of success. He probably would have wound up back at Okie State, or Indiana/UCLA type of a job.

If Self goes to the NBA, it will be to coach one team, the San Antonia Spurs, where his boss would be his college best-friend and roommate R.C. Buford.

Every year after the Spurs are eliminated I nervously wait to see if Coach Popovich is retiring. That roster is getting old & Popovich is 60+, I don't see him staying through a major rebuilding effort the team is going to have to undergo in a couple of years.

Why would you go to the NBA? It makes no sense.

He will get more money at KU. I guarantee there's going to be another fat contract extension.

Besides, college coaches can stay in a job for 20 years. He is virtually untouchable at Kansas. he can get University Presidents fired. In the NBA, you're just a part of the carousel. And even if you wanted to go, why the HELL would anyone want to take over for Popvich? Duncan retires, Ginobili and Parker get older. Totally on the downhill. No thanks.

Maybe I'm being naive, but it just doesn't make sense to me.

unless it's some kind of personnel goal, i see no reason to go to the NBA now that the college coaches are making so much.

If you piss off the wrong player you get fired in the NBA ... it's stupid.

That Laker coach is done ... he benched some guys to try to exert a little control and he'll get fired for it.

NBA Coaches are baby sitters, and Self has built an empire at Kansas.

Who was it that said the KU/Mizzou games would be over if Mizzou went to the SEC?

He said it with confidence, I think that was very telling on his priorities. He will retire from KU IMO.

sedated
03-28-2012, 02:19 PM
The only thing that worries me comes from a quote I heard from Self when he was recently talking about taking the KU job back in 2003:

When Self asked if he thought he should not take the KU position, his father said, "No, if you're scared to follow [Roy], you're right, I don't think you should take it." Self added that "basically (he) told me I was soft, which is a good call, because I was being soft." So Self went ahead, accepted the Kansas job.

If he sees it as his next big challenge, then he may not care about what he has established here.

Sources: Danny Manning to Tulsa


Kansas assistant coach Danny Manning has agreed to become the next head coach at Tulsa, sources close to the situation told ESPN's Neil Everett.

Manning, 45, has been an assistant at Kansas since March 2007 and is in his ninth season as part of the Jayhawks staff.

He's also Kansas' all-time leading scorer and rebounder, with 2,951 points and 1,187 boards from 1984-88. He spent 15 seasons in the NBA, averaging 14 points per game.

The Jayhawks play Ohio State on Saturday in the Final Four.

Tulsa fired Doug Wojcik on March 11 after a 17-14 season. Wojcik never took Tulsa to the NCAA tournament despite having six consecutive winning seasons.
