ESPN had a panel of 14 rank the coaching jobs (not the coaches ability themselves, but how desireable the coaching position is) of 15 BE Basketball schools. The criteria is contained in the article. St. John's ranked 9th. Syracuse was No. 1.

I don't know where they get these rankings.

UCONN, IMO, ceases to be an attractive job the day that Jim Calhoun retires (and might not be now, anyway, with sanctions, and an unsure future). He built that program, put his blood and sweat into it. They were nothing before he arrived, and I think they'll be nothing after he's gone. If that job ever opened up, I think a lot of people will not really be interested in it. Likley to use that job, just to get bigger raises where they are at.

Syracuse is a good job now (they were a good program before Boeheim took over), but I don't know how high the interest level will be, when they are playing third fiddle in the ACC.

Notre Dame, Marquette, and especially Pitt are not better jobs. Period.

after Cuse leaves, best job in Big East will be Louisville, Besides sleeping with your cousin and skipping your dentist appointment, what else is there to do in Kentucky except follow college ball

I think you are onto something. This is why top coaches command gigantic salaries. Bob Knight leaves Indiana, and they become a not so prominent, and not a program to be feared. UCLA despite a champsionship, still lives in the shadow of Wooden. 20 years later, Carnesecca and Lapchick's success year in and out still is a challenge for anyone taking the reigns. Some of these guys leave programs in ruins (see Calipari), some leave at the peak of a program (see Digger Phelps and Fordham), so these ratings are inconsequential. Kentucky, a state where honesty is secondary to winning all the marbles in basketball will always seek to bring in the highest paid talent available and maintains a rabid following. Turn a team into a loser (See Matt Doh's failure an North Carolina) and even a storied program has to recover (although they were never on life support, unlike SJU)

I think the reason a ranking like this is even put out is 15 guys making up the panel have entirely too much time on their hands........... the ranking of coaches is a totally subjective thing, as far as I am concerned
