I'd be interested to see similar numbers for assistants. While Wojo obviously isn't one of the 5, we do have both Stan and Dwayne on the sidelines as well, and have helped advance the careers of guys like Justin Gainey and Danny Madhavapallil (minority, not black).

Are there any Asian head basketball coaches in D1?  Serious question.

Carrawell too.  He interviewed for a head coach spot and I'd consider the Duke role an advancement.

Such a silly thing to take credit for. It’s not like this was intentional or coordinated by the league / we’re doing anything better than other leagues. It is just a coincidence.

I don’t know, but it sure would be great to make sure every box is checked because that’s what is most important and will give the Big East positive press...and if he or she can breakdown a 2-3 zone then let’s replace Wojo.

Is it? Are large state schools (especially ones in smaller towns) willing to hire minority coaches? The Big 10 (14) has 1? Look what happened at Indiana. Davis went to a Final Four and was quickly run out.

Davis went to a Final Four with Knight’s players and admitted years later he was in over his head.  Just as African American Rick Majerus wasn’t ready at MU

Some coaches get thrust into positions they simply aren’t ready for at the time.

But aren't you the one who says we should be patient and let coaches grow because like Majerus they could get better?
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,

Absolutely....but our esteemed fan base didn’t have the patience then just as they don’t now.  Read Majerus’ book, pretty clear he was frustrated with the fans, administration, etc....and it drove him to leave.  Maybe with more patience he becomes the coach he did while still at MU....unfortunately he didn’t.  I hope we don’t make further mistakes and drive people away.

Todd (a friend) is Jewish and got Israeli citizenship when he played there (Like Travis is Italy) but is not actually from Israel, but rather Arizona.

There are some Asian-American assistants (one is a friend who started the Asian Coaches Association) but with so few Asian players having come through college hoops there isn’t a pool from which to hire.

Has MU ever had a minority head coach in any sport? Curious.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

I have to ask....why does being a former player have to dictate whether they are material to coach?

Ask those in hiring. It’s not a requirement but the main avenue for people to get into coaching, which includes playing in HS. Basketball isn’t big in the Asian-American culture in the first place (sports in general are often frowned upon) which leads to a limited number of candidates for jobs.

It depends.  I live in a city where Asians dominate.  A few years ago my son’s volleyball team won the So. Cal championships and later finished second in state.  Every kid was Asian except my son and one other.  The baseball team just won state last year. Etc.  No doubt there are cultural differences, but sports is important for many Asians.
