Illini appears poised to hire John Groce as new basketball coach (love the picture in the article)

http://www.suntimes.com/sports/11558...all-coach.html

Loved his stuff in the 70s

Groce has done a great job at Ohio. Time for the next step

Would be great hire for Illini, but isn't official yet

I still can't believe South Carolina's terrible basketball program was able to lure away a good coach like Frank Martin. I was scared we were going to hire another Darrin Horn.

I hate to lose him but I can't fault him. He has put together a great program at OU. Illinois will get a nice coach, but it'll be tough given how competitive the Big Ten is.

Why is South Carolina a better job than Kansas State for a basketball coach?

As of now it's not. But if he turns South Carolina into a winning team like K-State, then it's easily a better job for Martin. Now he's getting paid more, is closer to his hometown (Miami), doesn't have to live in Manhattan, KS (no offense but I can imagine it's not high up on places where coaches want to live, especially one from the Southeast/Miami), SC has better facilities and deeper pockets, and it's probably going to be easier for him to recruit here once he gets his system fully in place.

I was hoping he'd be tempted to stay around one more season since everyone important from this year's team is coming back.

Can't fault him for making the jump though. He'll probably make more in one season than he did on his entire contract with OU.

Cool, thanks for the explanation! As a student at Kansas, K-State is always looked at as "little brother" and I honestly don't know much at all about South Carolina, haha.

But, that makes sense. Always interesting to see how good facilities and all really can make a big difference for schools in recruiting, especially when they aren't "name" schools.

Not that we're surprised by this, but there is a sense of it being official now.

Illinois will hold a news conference Thursday to announce John Groce as the Illini's next coach, multiple sources told ESPN.com on Wednesday night.

Groce took Ohio to the Sweet 16 this season before the Bobcats lost to North Carolina in overtime.

Illinois was working on the news conference and release Wednesday.

I would never leave early unless I was a guaranteed lottery pick.

So many guys leave early to get picked from 15-60 and get buried on depth charts and never pan out.

So Barnes I could see. The others should go back, IMO.


But I don't know the personal particulars and its their right to make that decision.

Barnes could possibly go in the late 1st round. Dude's stock really plummeted.

UConn banned is withheld, pretty hypocritical of the NCAA considering the fact they waived a few teams already for next season. I guess this i what happens when your coach fails to comply and then wins the NCAA Tournament.

Couldn't happen to a better program/coach AFAIC.

If you're a guaranteed 1st rounder, there's not a lot to be gained in your development as a player by staying in school. Talented players tend to develop regardless of their situation, even if you're stapled to the bench early on as a pro. By staying you can of course earn some money on your rookie contract by moving up in the first round, but that would negated or you might be worse off because of the year of salary that you've lost. And there's always the possibility you can hurt your draft stock as well.

Why can't college athletes go back to school after getting drafted in the NBA? They can do that in MLB and the NHL.

They could technically, and some do, but they can't play for the team anymore. Might have something to do with agents. That's why these athletes have to think longer instead of just bolting because several yes-men told them they'd go in the draft.

I assume you mean Mason Plumlee, as Miles is a senior.
