Another candidate?

Dale Brown was in town today to talk to some students and then a Rotary Club group.

In between the two events, I got a chance to talk with the former LSU coach.

He has an interesting take on which coach he would like to see in his old office. He makes an argument for Johnny Jones. He says Jones has built the North Texas program from the bottom up and taken it to the tournament while doubling attendance along the way.

It remains to be seen if Jones will be a serious candidate. While people are beginning to remember Brown's career as a whole and not the last four years, you'll still have some that remember Jones as an assistant in the final days.

Just like some will hold his association with John Brady against Butch Pierre.

But it is food for thought while this AD/hoops coach search drags on and on.
