bring back Wardle and dump wojo.

Some people's infatuation with Brian Wardle to be MU's next Coach is just baffling to me. Absolutely baffling.

Because he has been very successful.  Especially at Bradley which was in terrible shape before he got there.  And he's an alum.

I'm not saying I want him as MU's next coach, but it's easy to see why people would like him.

Sure he's been very successful...for the level he's been at. I just don't think he'd be able to recruit the level of players MU would need to be a consistent Big East contender. Lot different waters swimming with 2 and 3* players(and lower) that he gets at Bradley as opposed to the 4 and 5* guys he'd HAVE to be recruiting for MU.

I think the infatuation is for one reason only...the stability people think he'd bring. That's it.

I completely agree with you.  And because of the nostalgia factor.

I wouldn't take him now either.  But if he takes Bradley to that next level - where success is constant and sustained - then I would be more interested.

The PAC 12 isn't as cash rich as the Big 10 or SEC, but they're at least on par with the Big East. And Arizona is probably one of the better paying PAC 12 schools. Being able to pluck an assistant coach from there is impressive, regardless of previous connections with Wojo.

Though maybe getting away from Sean Miller was Gaineys primary concern.

Here is a snippet from an article prior to the 2018-2019 season. Gainey's buyout expired on 4/1/20, hired at Marquette on 4/3/20.


"Gainey will be paid $290,000 annually and Peters $275,000 through the end of the 2019-20 season, according to contracts obtained by the Star through public records requests. The contracts are fully guaranteed, unless the assistants are fired for cause. Gainey and Peters must pay $50,000 buyouts if they leave voluntarily before April 2020. "

We can all assume the hottest girl in school won't go out with us, and that's probably fair...but unless you ask, you won't completely know for sure. And if you never ask and find out later on, she would have even though she was still with her old boyfriend at the time, you would regret it forever. If she says no, big deal, you were expecting her to. Nothing lost. You work down the list of hot girls until you have exhausted the list of hot chicks and have to move on to the average one's. They will always be there for you.
Well said!!

WOW! I had no idea that assistants made this kind of money.

From what you've outlined here, makes it seem like he really wants to be at MU.

I actually think that's surprisingly low for a school like Arizona. he is undoubtedly making more at MU. Likely significantly more.

Maybe, I don't know. But I think a smart assistant coach would happily take a lateral move to get away from Sean Miller right now.

Let's see. Two assistants were named head coaches in less than a year. How many programs can say that?

I don't know.  But clearly, Wojo is a leader and groomer of men.  Stan and Brett would be nowhere, if not for the intellect, wisdom, and leadership of Steve.  Thank you for the reminder.
No doubt there are cultural differences, but sports is important for many Asians.

Gainey was hired at Arizona after the DeAndre Ayton stuff came out.

No need for the sarcasm.  He was simply stating a fact.

Right, I know that. I wasn't implying that Gainey was part of the Ayton scheme. Just that he might not want to stick around with Sean Miller to see how everything plays out. A lateral move to a more stable situation is probably appealing.

I didn't mean to suggest you thought Gainey was involved with Ayton. Just pointing out that Gainey went to work for Miller after that all blew up (in fact, it appears Gainey was hired to replace Book Richardson), so he went in well aware of who he was working for and what might be coming down the pike.

Wojo is the worst! Never hires good assistant coaches!

Except for Stan.

And Killings.

And Nelson.

But otherwise, never!

I haven't seen the salary schedules, but I am fairly confident that Johnson made well north of that.

You have to click through on this link...but the lowest of the top 10 paid assistants in CBB two years ago was Melvin Watkins at Arkansas at $373,481...the highest was Kenny Payne at Kentucky at $805,000.

It's not surprising that the third assistant at Arizona wasn't close to being among the 10 highest paid assistants in the country.

That wasn't my point...someone in here said he was surprised assistants got paid that much. I said I thought they got more. I bet he's over $300,000 at MU.

Some people infatuation with Wojo as our head coach is not only baffling beyond belief, but is borderline insanity. Meltdown amplified every year. Take it to the bank.

And your clown show group that hijacks every thread and makes it against Wojo isn't insanity? 

I'll tell you what.  If you don't like what's going on, call Scholl and leave the boards until a new coach is in town.
