Coaching Dominoes

It is mildly interesting to note what kind of ripple effect Joel Maturi (and Tubby really) have had on schools across the country when he fired Dan Monson. Here is the domino effect to date...

1. Minnesota fires Dan Monson hires Tubby Smith.
- Monson lands at Long Beach State
2. Kentucky hires Billy Gilespie
3. Texas A&M hires Mark Turgeon
4. Wichita State - Gregg Marshall
5. Winthrop - promoted Ast. Coach Randy Peele

and the last domino falls, this is kind of like 6 degrees of Dan Monson.

So the final tally is 6 schools affected. The Big 10, SEC, Big 12, Missouri Valley and Big South also all affected.
