Your thoughts. yeah. We have a listen. We have a long time coach in waiting for program legend. Who's been there decades deciding to leave and and and take a job in the pac twelve and It's mike hopkins all over can don't just kidding. But the parallels are actually there will credit an unnamed person. We both know who who made that to made. That comparison this i think is a pretty good higher now. This has been buzzed about. Since before shawn miller got fired. I have talked to a couple of people out for your. Oh quick i get your thoughts on it. There are a couple of people i've talked to.

Two thousand twenty one. Welcome back to the cbs. Sports college basketball podcast. Where we sometimes discussed campbell finding dodo birds and leaky black matt. Norlander is here with me in. Arizona has found shaun miller's replacement deadline when we talked about this after shawn miller was fired. We went through a list of candidates. And i think we sort of settled on the end of the day. I think it's going to be a gonzaga associate head coach.

Who will never be not convinced. That tommy lloyd was approached about this like a month ago and basically said we want you to be the next coach in gonna fire shawn miller. I'm not saying that happened. I'm telling you there are people that believe this and this has been wired for a long time now. There were a couple of days here the past couple of days where the search kind of went on a not a pause but they topped the brakes through more interviews. That happened on tuesday. And they did legitimately interview miles. Simon damon stoudamire. Jason terry josh passenger. All these people were interviewed. There's a belief that eric muscleman whose doors to get himself his own new contract which if true or not. I don't think he needed arizona to get paid the way he got paid. But good on him. So your thoughts on arizona. Getting lloyd and how long it took like. I think there's a universe in which it could have. It's been a little over week hours wise. Since sean laura's fire has been week to the day. They wanted to get tommy lloyd in last thursday. I think this was achievable but it just seemed a little bit. How about this way. Noisier more dramatic behind the scenes than than arizona. Probably hoping for even though in the end it got its guy. Listen you and i both heard you even before shawn miller was fired that tommy. Lloyd was a possibility if indeed jamila was fired. So you know. It's not a coincidence. That the second sean. Fire tommy's name starts trending everywhere. Like keep an eye on tommy. Lloyd gonzaga associate head coach coach in waiting. If it were wired for a month. I don't know why it takes this long to get it done. You fire shawn miller on whatever day yolette forty-eight hours pass and then you hire tommy lloyd and you get on with it keeping my every day is important right now because the transfer portals on fire you got to try to retain whatever you can retain so. I guess i would just keep this simple. If this were wired you get it done much more quickly than this because it's important to get done as quickly as possible. Most important thing is to it right but the second most important thing is to get a you get it right get it done as quickly as possible so if you tell me what it was the guy and you waited this long. Somebody wasn't doing this brilliantly. But you know i don't know why you kept shawn miller five weeks after the season was ria so like i'm not ruling it out that this was mishandled but ultimately they landed where i thought they would probably land why it took this long to do it. I'm not sure. But i will say this. I texted a couple of people in basketball circles last night. Just sort of halfway joking but like of being serious. I was like listen. I wanna go play golf. But i don't wanna be on the number four t box and and get a text about hired a coach and now i gotta go podcast like i was like. Can i go play golf tomorrow or not. When is this thing gonna get wrapped up in two separate people. Who are the type of people you would talk to when the stuff is going on both said quote that searches shit show right now and they both use the exact same term and so it had gone. It had gotten a little unnecessarily a complicated. I think but again they ultimately land where they land. And here's what i would say if tommy is everything most people think he's going to be then nobody will care that it took longer than it probably should have taken to get tommy boy and the you're right about that if we look in three years and regardless of what does or doesn't come with a simple a or aarp sanctions but arizona's four five sitting there going no one's to really care macron was like the seventh option at ucla just took him to the final four. No one's talking about how long it's good at the time. Come on that was. That was a big story. Big story huge mess. I will bigger mess than this in my opinion. So you're right about that. Now the other thing here is that arizona had three former players interview for the gig. And with that you had different factions supporting those guys taking the job. And so that splintered support which only helped lloyd's if it was ever going to be something that was potentially in dow and then and i don't know how much this is gonna wind up mattering perish but it was emphasized before lloyd actually got the job like i can say for a fact right now there are former arizona players that are significant players known players. Hell gilbert arenas is on the record crapping all over. Tommy lloyd as a then would be coach of arizona because it happened before a loyd got the job loy just does not have the support of a lot of guys there now. This is a players program. This is the slogan. This is the damn twitter handle for the for the for the program. They're not having those guys immediately in your corner. Listen lloyd's and amazing recruiter. He'll probably overcome that hurdle but it's a hurdle nonetheless because those kinds of things at that kind of level like arizona's undoubtedly a top fifteen job probably a top ten job in america and when you can have current nba players or former nba players guys. Who have names attached to them. Be around your program and you can use them to your benefit. Clearly it helps matters and it seems like that is going to be something. That loyd is not going to immediately have. it's not the end of the world. I think you'll be okay but it would be better to have it than not by not hiring former player. I do think that that is a real issue. He is going to face at least initially. I don't know if it be the case. If we look at five years but i think for the next year or so He's just not going to have the same crowd behind him. That maybe otherwise would have been. I agree with you..
