If Johnson is actually hired... the hiring was done early enough in the process that it isn't inconceivable that Coyle was dazzled by Johnson and was all-in on him from the very beginning.everyone else with head coaching experience not named Richard Pitino didn’t want this job.
I don't know that anyone else was offered... This does not resemble the way Norwood Teague handled the hiring process, when everyone seemed to be turning him down and we ended up with searching the dregs of the coaching world for a coach. This does look like it was the guy Coyle wanted from the get-go, as they say... provided the hiring of Ben Johnson isn't a bunch of B.S.
