Daily Dirt II: 3/21/16

Crazy day today! Trying to keep up with everything…here’s the second “Daily Dirt” of the day…

  • Stanford: Heard from a great source that Tommy Amaker is involved here.  The current Harvard coach has also been the head coach at Michigan and Seton Hall.  Interesting to see if Stanford would hire another former Duke guard after they dismissed Johnny Dawkins.
  • Portland: Early names that I’ve heard to replace Eric Reveno: Gregg Gottlieb (assistant coach Oregon State), Ken Bone (Associate head coach Montana -former head coach at Washington State and Portland State), Donnie Daniels (assistant coach Gonzaga), and former NBA head coach and long-time Trailblazer Terry Porter.
  • St. Louis: In today’s first edition of the Daily Dirt, I mentioned FGCU head coach Joe Dooley here.  As of this afternoon, the Kevin Stallings rumors are also heating up.  He’s still the head coach at Vanderbilt (for now), but I can confirm that there has definitely been contact between him and SLU.
  • Texas Rio Grande Valley: I have heard from a great source that they are down to six finalists.  More on this one as I hear it.
  • Southern Utah: Keep an eye on this one.  Word on the street is that the new coach could be introduced as early as tomorrow…

Quick recap of all of today’s action:
