BREAKING: Washington will hire Syracuse's Mike Hopkins as its next basketball coach, per multiple sources. Announcement expected today.

Guess waiting for JB to retire not appealing
6 year deal

Plus, suspect that SU admin saw that Hopkins couldn't get it done on the level they were accustomed to. So they allowed him to walk.

I also think Hopkins ship sailed at Syracuse. Not a big enough name coach for the big money donors after Boheim retires.

I always thought when you fired a coach, the goal was to bring in a better one.

Following Boeheim at Syracuse will be a tough job for any coach. Whats the saying;, you don't want to replace the legend, you want to be the man who replaced the man who replaced the legend.

Washington wasn't exactly killing it wit the #1 overall pick on their team. They had 9 wins this year, which is equatable to our season last year, and we didn't exactly have that caliber player.

It just seems Hopkins has been at Boeheims side too long. Reminds one of Mahoney. I think Syracuse is being very smart in probably orchestrating the Hopkins move. They will have many candidates to choose from when Boeheim finally leaves.

Smart move by Hopkins to go back West and away from Cuse.

I hope he does well there while Cuse goes in the direction of BC.
