this will be TD's biggest test.
1. must admit he was wrong
2. must do damage control and answer why couldn't an NBA coach of the year be successful at Tulane.
3. must not swing and miss again.

Let's bring back the Posse coaching staff. Carlin Hartman as head cosch and Kim Lewis as director of basketball/recruiting. .

Would they even be interested at this point? We're really in a bind right now, because if you fire Dunleavy, there's no looking for a coach mid-season. You go with an interim. Who would that be?

Three years into the program and losing to #350 last RPI Alabama A&M won’t cut it. It’s time for a change.

They may be the only ones interested! If they aren't, who in the hell would be? At this point this season is lost. doesn't matter if Dunleavy, an assistant or Lisa Stockton ran the team. We'll be lucky to win another game. But yes, permanent change, if TD does his job, wouldn't happen mid-season.

Forget hiring assistants. We failed with that route with Finney and Dickerson. Hire a proven winner from a smaller school. Dunleavy was a proven loser before he came to Tulane.

The Furman coach was born in New Orleans, according to his wikipedia page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Richey
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

Besides names like Kim Lewis and Carlin Hartman these are mostly a bunch of retreads that people are suggesting. They might have had success at one time but nothing recent and would be a disaster for Tulane. Just admit like me that you don’t follow the top head coaches at the smaller schools or know the names of the top assistant coaches at the big schools. Hopefully someone on here who is informative on this subject can give us a credible list of names. So far I haven’t seen it.

It's an internet bulletin board. You're going to get all sorts of ridiculous and passionate posters. Remember at the mid season mark, many were calling for Fritz's head. No, most of us don't follow lesser mid-major basketball programs or know who the up and coming coaches are. But in this conference, we better get someone that can recruit AND coach. Someone who's built a program from the ground level up. The shelf will likely be bare as many players will transfer with the change.

and considering their record, is that a bad thing ?

Fritz was 2-5 with losses to a decent Wake, 11 win UAB, 10 win Cincy, and 11 win Ohio State. Fritz got his ass beat by actual teams.

Dunleavy is losing to random SWAC teams.

+1000 I would l:ove that. Even Greg Gary. I think Kim Lewis could have been the best of all time if not for that huge injury he sustained playing Indiana at the Temple that Kinght built.

I don't disagree one iota. But that doesn't change the fact that MANY posters on this board were calling for Fritz's job at 2-5.

Agree that he'd be one to look at. He was born here but must have moved very early on to Lake Charles as the Advocate article leading up to their game against LSU referred to him as a Lake Charles native.
