Shocking possibility regarding Kents Jim Christian
http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=2831528

Article calls out that they will hire a former head or current head coach. That rules out, I believe, Turegons assistants.

JC is more east coast, played at Rhode Island, but you can hardly argue with the MVC, a salary starting at least 1/2 mil with add ons, not to mention a rabid fan base. Can you say, rabies vaccination?

Christian isn't mentioned as a candidate in the article, has no ties to Wichita State or the MVC, and there are a lot of "head coach(es) or former head coach(es)" between Kent, OH, and Wichita (not to mention west of there, too).

That's a fair-sized leap, to immediately pair the two.

Just asking and appreciate your input.

My thot drifted to JC because he is a head coach, a 20+ winner in multiple consecutive years that schedules big boys. No dancing, but neither had Turegon been setting the world on fire.

It should be an interesting process. Wonder if it will continue with the cascading effect on other schools or if the hire had been in moth balls?

JC was mentioned by 3-4 folks in initial lists regarding replacements for Turgeon -- Katz being one (fwiw).
