Excellent piece by Chris Dufresne of the Los Angeles Times, who breaks down Tim Floyd's decision to turn down an offer from Arizona to stay at USC.
Floyd, of course, was looking like he was going to pull a Nick Saban this week, telling his players at the season-ending team banquet that they should remain loyal to USC and stick around another year.
The next day, Floyd was on a private jet bound for Tucson to interview for the Wildcat opening.
Dufresne writes: "OK, so what now? Do we beat on Floyd for being a liar? Bulletin: He's a coach.
"A coach's dream job is only his dream job until a better dream job opens up or someone opens the vault."
Arizona has had five months to search for a coach but seemingly is no closer to making a hire than it was on Day 1.
Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News says it's time for the Wildcats to get real and forget about hiring a high-profile coach. He suggests Arizona go after Randy Bennett of St. Mary's.
Wilner writes: "He’s not a big name, doesn't have a big personality or reputation, but his teams are well prepared and well organized on the court, and he's highly regarded in the industry."
