That'd be a good hire for Rutgers. I could see Howland building that program pretty quickly with the local talent available.
That would be a great hire, they should also consider Eddie Jordan. But I'm surprised Howland is seriously considering them, I would've thought he would've waited for a west coast job or more of a blue-blood type.
They're a sleeping giant with the talent in the surrounding areas
Howland could easily establish Rutgers into a program like he did at Pittsburgh. The talent they sit on is immense. The B1G move only boosts them even more. The RAC gets rocking, even when they suck. Rutgers is not a bad job.
Howland is not a west coaster.
Nor would a blue blood hire him after the UCLA mess.
Rutgers is a good fit both ways.
Agreed, they definitely have more potential. Think it will take some time though after this incident.
Born in Oregon, grew up in California, played in Santa Barbara/Weber State. Assistant at Gonzaga&UCSB. Started head coaching at Northern Arizona. Pittsburgh has been his only stop east of the Rockies and he's spent the majority of time on the left coast.
I also wouldn't call UCLA a "mess," they just have some unrealistic expectations.
http://Report: Rutgers, Eddie Jordan close
I've been a fan of his since his days with the Wizards, would be a solid hire IMO.
