Here is what past timelines have been for hiring coaches:

MEN'S BASKETBALL:

1. Flannery retires 3/30. Paulsen hired 4/19. 20 days. (Hardt)

2. Paulsen leaves 4/18. Davis hired 5/20. 32 days. (Hardt)

3. Davis exits 3/2. 18 days thus far. (Truax)

Note that there was likely less urgency when Davis was hired. Paulsen left so late in the cycle that most jobs had already been filled by late April/early May.


WOMEN'S BASKETBALL:


Roussell leaves 4/2. Woodruff hired 4/25. 23 days. (Truax)


FOOTBALL:

Susan "steps down" 1/14. Cecchini hired 2/6. 23 days. (Truax)

- - - - -

Based on the above, I think 21-23 days would be a reasonable timeline estimate, which would theoretically mean a decision between March 23rd and March 25th.

Given his message to supporters and fans last year, I think it is reasonable to assume that Truax has been planning this change on some level for months. Well, should’ve been planning. I want this to be a well thought out decision, but given what was reasonably known for a long time, I can’t see it taking longer than historical timelines.

It can if candidates turn it down, or decline to interview. More likely now than after Paulsen, wouldn't you think?

My post did not mean to suggest that it is taking too long for the new coach hire. Actually, I was meaning that after 18, now 19 days Don ‘t we have any juicy rimors flying around that our L-burg local members can enliven the board with?

Actually it does make sense. FDU may have been seeded last, but they beat the #65 seed Texas Southern in the play-in game. Since the brackets are pre-determined and not reseeded, Purdue got to play lowest seeded team because FDU "upset" Texas Southern.



It's probably even simpler than that. Purdue was the only #1 seed assigned to a Friday/Sunday site; therefore, they got the winner of the Wednesday first 4 game.

Hires can’t happen much faster than Iona. Potion leaves Iona for St. John’s and a day later Iona hires Tobin Anderson from Farleigh Dickinson.

From Matt Norlander on the CBS Sports website:


Bucknell
Out: Nathan Davis

Bucknell split from Davis after eight seasons, which included a 129-155 record and NCAA Tournament appearances in 2017 and 2018. Bucknell is arguably the best job in the Patriot League and will be competitively chased.

I'm told it's going to have its coach in place by Wednesday.

Recent tweets from two sites that track coaching things but have less than perfect credibility:

"Expect George Halcovage to be named the next HC at Bucknell… announcement expected in the next 24 - 48 hours"

"The potential delay @ Bucknell w/ George Halcovage… . . Halcovage had his eyes on Furman if Bob Richey left town."

"Coaches database" is saying Halcovage is our head coach. here's one:

https://www.coachesdatabase.com/george-halcovage/

If this is not true, someone needs to check their sources. If it is true, Welcome, George!

Just checked ND’s overall record with the Bison and it’s 129-115 not 155 losses. Still bad. Four straight losing seasons and the last 3 of 4 years with 20 or more losses. Ugly.

We will be back. Welcome back John Griffin!
