Recommended Posts

Here me out here.

Former player - Check
D1 Coaching Experience - Check
Basketball Knowledge - Check
Once shut down Michael Jordan - Check
Fiery no-nonsense type of Coach - Check
Knight Disciple  - Check
Loves IU basketball - Check minus
Can handle the media and big stage - Check
Cool acronym for him, CDD - Check
Will cost us nearly nothing per year - Check, he would coach IU for free
Will sign 1 to 100 year contract - Check

With all the check boxes completed, why would we not go after him as a coach?

Done and Done.  Hire CDD

So, the day after FCAM got fired, I tuned into the Dakich radio show for two segments (that's all I could stand). In between insulting and hanging up on anyone who didn't completely agree with him, and being kind of giddy that FCAM got fired because it validated his opinion that he wasn't the right guy, he went on this weird rant about how message boards like this one used initials/acronyms for coaches and how he didn't understand it at all. So, I guess if he was hired, we would have to use his full name.

I can live with that condition upon his hiring.

I’m confused?

Hire him for what?

Concession stand attendant, popcorn popper (important job at the hall), maintenance, ?

Seriously, he could be the next big thing at IU.  He knows basketball.  He only trolls us because he wants so badly to be us.  Give him the chance.  Let him lead the way.  he has the street cred now as a well informed and knowledgeable former coach / announcer

I know the post is a joke, but I’m not sure DD can back into coaching because he’s probably burnt so many bridges. He always seems to get into online spats with player’s families. All an opposing coach needs to recruit against him is his twitter feed and to ask recruit’s families: you want your kid to play for this clown?

I love the idea.  First, his radio show would cease.  Secondly, his coaching “prowess” would be on full display for everyone to see.  Third, we could do away with the utter meaninglessness of getting an “IU guy.”  All in one quick 2-3 year experiment.  Then, the hiring filter would be solely focused on qualifications and chops for the role.

I think the radio show has pretty much put an end to any consideration it might have gotten.

Finally someone sees the wisdom of my solution :D
