Now that the coaching carousel has ended during the 2015 offseason – save your breath, John Calipari isn’t leaving for the NBA – it’s time to look at some of the best gigs in college basketball. Specifically, let’s look at the best coaching spots in the country.
I reiterate, these aren’t the best five programs in the country or necessarily the five best spots. These are the five places you are looking at differently as a coach. These are spots that are absolutely final stops when it comes to your coaching career but also have the safety that isn’t offered at the likes of a Kansas or Kentucky.
These rankings are based on the fundamental question, if I were an average coach, which job would I most desire if they are all open. Again, you won’t see names like Kentucky, Kansas, Duke or North Carolina on here because an average coach isn’t getting those jobs.
