I like Jeff Boals. By all accounts, the guy is a solid dude and a good coach. But, I know he's been wanting to move into a head coaching position for several years now, so congrats to him for getting the opportunity with Stony Brook.
I know it might not seem like it, but maybe losing all these pieces from this seasons could actually prove to be a good thing for the program. A little addition by subtraction.
I think Donlon would be a good candidate but I wouldn't mind Steele or Kuwik. As far as former players, I've always thought Scoonie Penn would be an excellent coach.
I'm cautiously optimistic about the future of Ohio State basketball, but then again, I'm a Browns fan, so what do I know... :)
