Lol thinking Fran is going to keep coaching at Iowa after his older sons are done and younger son is off playing basketball somewhere else.

I'd be surprised if Fran sticks around after this year.

The new coach better be able to play the portal and inspire shit tons of NIL money, or Iowa basketball will nose dive.

The new coach should recruit a different type of player
that's gonna take dinero, compadre.

pre-NIL, Fran went after lots of explosive kids and couldn't land them (except for Tyler Cook) for reasons that were most likely due to program culture and perhaps money. Post-NIL, Fran doesn't have the pockets, even if the kid might buy into his program culture.

The next coach needs to be the kind of guy Iowa would have passed on twenty or thirty years ago.

I don't fully agree. Watching the NCAA/conference tournaments every year there are loads of teams from all of the country full of athletic kids who play hard and tough.

The latter is coaching, and Fran just doesn't do hard and tough.

He does go after lots of athletic kids, though.

At any rate, his time is most likely up. Next.

In an upset, his link says he attends Roosevelt. I would have guessed GrandView Christian.

He's a goofy looking fucker, but he's more physically developed as a high school junior than Patrick as a college super senior.
