Top Assistants ready to move to the 1st chair E-mail
Monday, 10 March 2008

John Groce, Ohio State- Has done a masterful job of coaching at recruiting. Integral in landing the Oden, Conley, Cook combo that took the Buckeyes to last year's Final Four. His name has been strongly linked to Missouri State.

Joe Dooley, Kansas-Already logged head coaching experience and serves as Bill Self's right hand man on the loaded Jayhawks. His name is being mentioned at Rice and TCU.

Greg Gard, Wisconsin-Bo Ryan has counted on him at UW-Plateville, UW-Milwaukee and now with the Badgers. He has helped keep the Badgers as a consistent name in the national top 10 rankings. Western Illinois and Eastern Illinois are schools that Gard's name has been associated with.

Mike Hopkins, Syracuse-Although it has already been confirmed that the Syracuse Grad will take over following Boeheim's retirement, we feel that he's been more than ready for some time. Syracuse has been on the bubble the last few years, and a coaching change may be what the Orange need to take their program back to the top.

Steve Forbes, Tennessee-A seasoned recruiter that has experienced success at all levels. Was Billy Gillespie's lead recruiter at Texas A & M before taking over in the same capacity for Bruce Pearl at Tennessee. We are hearing Forbes name at Missouri State, Arkansas State, and Jacksonville State.

Greg Grensing UNLV-The proof is in the pudding. Longtime Dana Altman assistant at Creigthon, helped build the Blue Jays into one of the nation's top mid-major programs. Now he's been highly involved in helping UNLV take the same step. His name has surfaced at UC-Davis and Sacramento State.
