Archie Miller signed an extention yesterday,  so he's locked up. Pastner has a good gig making more money than Sean Miller, so unless he is fired he isn't going anywhere.  He bleeds UA, so I don't think w his options he'd pick ASU anyway. It's hard NOT to find UA ties in a coach. They have produced a lot of coaches with good pedigree.  I still think it should be Capel, but he's not biting on the job. Maybe he's waiting until after the tourney.

I don't see any coaches with ties to Miller / UA taking the ASU job.  Archie was NEVER going to do it, and I don't think any of the others mentioned would want it or would want to go up against Sean Miller in recruiting.

I think Lavin would be able to do the best job in recruiting to ASU and I think he should get the job.

Capel, I think, will be the one ASU hires.  Good luck with that.  Nine years as a head coach, with 3 NCAA appearances ( one elite 8 ).  Overall record of 175-110 (averaging 19-12 ) isn't that impressive.  A little bit better than Herb (155-133 at ASU, with 2 NCAAs and 4 NITs)  Sean Miller is 163-52 at UA and 283-99 overall.

Pastner is a no-go.  He may only have one more year at Memphis before he gets fired, but he is definitely looking to go to a better program than ASU.

Well, since there appears to be no new info floating around (other than Pastner MAY be considering ASU  :D :D :D), I have to believe that Capel will be the one and they are just waiting until Duke's season is over before saying anything.  I think that hire will be a good one for all of the other coaches in the PAC-12.  He may actually do a bit better than Herb, but ASU fans shouldn't hold their breath.

Here's an article today.  Don't forget, he got fired from his last HC job.

The link didn't work, so here is the text:


"Capel hire wouldn't intimidate Pac-12 coaches

Over the next 48 to 72 hours, Arizona State is likely to announce the hiring of Duke assistant Jeff Capel as its new basketball coach. That would be OK. No sitting coach in the Pac-12 would look on in fear. Capel is only 40 and has been a head coach for nine seasons (at VCU and Oklahoma). The gamble ASU athletic director Ray Anderson would take is whether he

I'm glad to see that possible hire. I just think ASU could do soooo much better.  He's a solid coach, but the ranks are thin.  He's prob one of the best avail, just a retread. Danger Will Robinson, it could get uglier if the rumors are right.

ASU fans will love him..........................for 4 or 5 years, that is.  He recruited on very good player who carried OK.  After that?  Meh.

Capel's brother Jason Capel just got fired as the other ASU basketball head coach (Appalachian State University). He went something like 53-70. You better hope that's not an omen.

Tell you what. If we get Capel, mebbe he'll let Miller kiss this. That's as close as he'll ever get to one.

LOL.  The closest ASsU will ever get is the middle finger.  Miller may get a NC before Assu gets past the first weekend of the NIT.

BTW,  word is that Capel has removed himself from consideration for the ASsU job.   :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:  If true, your AD wasted a lot of search time waiting until Dook's season was over.  I guess Capel doesn't want to get near that dumpster fire that is ASsU basketball.

That is hilarious. That job is so unattractive, that an assistance and formerly fired head coach doesn't even want it. That is sad. ASU decided not to spend the money to hire an agency to vet the candidates. They figured they could do it all themselves and save some cash. Now doesn't that look stupid.

So hard to believe, being that ASU is the biggest University in the country. That just doesn't make sense.  ???

Mark, even you have to admit that looks pretty sad. You know, his brother is still available.  >:D
