    Brad Stevens was the first coach that came to me, but he has a much better supported program at Butler and signed a long contract for good money in 2010. I’d make the phone call anyway.

    Question, could SMU build a competitive BB program by solely focusing on North Texas talent? If so, who (current coach at any level) has the best ties with local HS coaches in the area?

    They tried the local ties route before Doherty with Jimmy Tubbs, and that didn’t work so well. I thought & hoped when they got Doherty that they had gotten someone who would recruit well, especially with the new facility. I still think that’s the only possible route to building any kind of a program, getting a good, solid, successful coach, as opposed to an up-and-comer. I think they just got the wrong one this time. Brooks, Thomas, or Lansing are just going backwards.
