    First, he is a great evaluator of talent. Second, he is great with the kids and their parents. Remember what he did to keep Burks after being hired. Burks may have been his best recruiting job.

    If he keeps turning heads this year, I think we could have a legit shot at one of those 5* SGs.

    Agreed although we might have to worry about losing him soon. I think he likes the process of taking an unknown and making them a major contender before moving on so if he does leave I hope it is not for a few more years when we are regularly in the big dance. If so, we could more easily attract a top coach.

    i think the only job Tad takes would be KU and i sincerely hope Bohn is smart enough to offer him a big raise. Tad is currently the 2nd lowest paid coach in the league.

    he will get a raise, but Bohn is doing it much smarter this time. I would expect a raise/extension at the end of the season if we can finish with something close to 20 wins.

    Yup. Let him establish his value without 2 NBA players on the roster he didn't recruit. Early returns are fantastic though :thumbsup:

    And to the OP, don't forget he got a big swing and a miss on Mills

    However our assistant coach average salary is second highest in league. Agree about offering Tad a raise soon if the success continues.

    I'm strongly of the opinion that it's nearly impossible to find true centers who are real game changers. They can't even find them in the NBA. I don't know if it's a new direction for Tad or not, but I like the idea of focusing on forwards who can do multiple things in that 6'7" to 6'9" range and having a deep rotation of those types. You don't need a center if you've got about 6 guys in the Roberson/Cain/Gordon/Scott mold.

    I agree with this. Everyone wants a 7 footer, but those guys just aren't out there. And if they are, you won't see them in college longer than a year. Scott and Gordon will make a big difference on the interior and neither are near 7'.
