UPDATED: Tennessee Basketball Coaching Hot Board

Richard Pitino (Minnesota)

8812560Pros: Tennessee flirted with Pitino last year and very well could do so again. In three years as a head coach, he he’s 43–28 (.606) and he led Minnesota to the NIT championship last year. He has extensive experience as an assistant coach and, though he obviously doesn’t have the track record of his father, his name does carry some weight. At just 32 years old, youth is definitely on his side.

Cons: He hasn’t made an NCAA Tournament appearance and is an underwhelming 14-22 in Big 10 play. He’d probably cost over $2 million per season and that might be too much for a coach with an NCAA Tournament berth.
