TEAMCONFNEW COACH
ButlerBEThad MattaA+Coming home, outstanding hire if he can stay healthy
Mississippi St.SECChris JansAGrabass probably kept him out of P5 longer than it should have.Won over multiple jobs/levels
XavierBESean MillerAWe’ve seen this story before. He will win here big.
San DiegoWCCSteve LavinB+The record is great, the 7 years out of the game isn’t off to a good start
LSUSECMatt McMahonB+Won big without Ja too. Bringing the Murray St core helps big time
La SalleA10Fran DunphyB+A winner is a winner. Knows Philly, been there since Ben Franklin times
MissouriSECDennis GatesBI wasn’t as high 2 months ago but he’s off to a great start
MilwaukeeHorzBart LundyBPretty dominate in D2, should be better this time around in D1. I like it for them.
New Mexico St.WACGreg HeiarBHigh level JUCO success, I think it translates.

South CarolinaSECLamont ParisB-Bring Malichi Smith with you and you’ve done something
TulsaAmerEric KonkolB-Won at a tough place, worry about his lack of portalling
Fairleigh DickinsonNECTobin AndersonC+209-62 in D2, big hire for them relative their stature
MassachusettsA10Frank MartinC+He did go to the Final Fluke 4 that one time
MarylandB10Kevin WillardC+Maryland fans seem underwhelmed but it’s a solid hire. Little upside but I don’t think they go backwards.
Seton HallBEShaheen HollowayC+Lightning in a bottle? Probably but you have to make this hire as an alum coming off that Elite 8
Sacramento St.BSkyDavid PatrickC+Turned around UC-Riverside, off to a good start
ChattanoogaSCDan EarlC+I guess going .500 at VMI is like going to the Sweet 16 at most schools, off to a good start
Saint Peter’sMAACBashir MasonCSolid rebound for St Pete.
Miami OHMACTravis SteeleCGetting fired with a #37 NET team. Tough
San FranciscoWCCChris GerlufsenCPromoted with in, helped turn them around off to a solid start
Alabama A&MSWACOtis Hughley Jr.C-Olympics coach at any level is a nice get for the SWAC
GeorgiaSECMike WhiteC-He’s a single not a homerun,but when you are Georgia that’s not bad IMO.

Georgia St.SBJonas HayesC-Xavier fired their coach right? This is one of the assistants
Murray St.MVCSteve ProhmC-Welcome back! You have no team
VillanovaBEKyle NeptuneC-At least he kicked the training wheels off, nice turnaround at Fordham
The CitadelSCEd ConroyC-Welcome back! The job is just as hard as when you left

Jackson St.SWACMo WilliamsF+He’s a “name” I guess? Just not a good one.
Cal St. NorthridgeBWTrent JohnsonF-Why wouldn’t you want to remove the interim tag after a 7-23 season for a 66 year old, sub .500 career coach.
High PointBSthG.G. SmithF-Dad got me another job…… .364% win percentage at my last.
