Here is my two cents. Wes Miller looks like a good young coach, but he only recruits NC and would jump to UNC in a heartbeat. I could see UNC hiring him as an assistant with possible grooming for the HC.
Musselman is going to win his next game, so at least an elite eight run. That may remove the wanderlust or home court advantage we assume we have... If he was possible, it may be gone with this good run in the tournament.
Moser at first looked interesting, maybe a little of a reach, but now he looks like he may be going to Indiana (my guess).
Dutcher is a good coach. He has a very good defense, but his offense had no answers for a defense they knew they were going to play. He has some great records, but has not rebuilt a team from the ground up. I do not think he create the excitement to be able to recruit the type of athletes we need at Minnesota.
Gates I think is too similar to Pitino. A young coach with promise, great communicator, but not quite enough experience to take over a B1G program. He may end up being a great coach, but we are still are hurting from a reach that didn't work out.
Smith looks very solid. He is driven and has built programs and gets his players to buy in. He has a great sense of humor and does't tank himself too seriously. He runs a very good defensive and has a good offensive. I think Smith will be our next coach.
