Not sure what his plans will be for Easter but he will be in Florida the week after Easter for a family event.

If Cragg is willing to take the initial flack and hires Pitino history seems to indicate that in a small time frame SJU could be looked on as an institutation that gave a second chance to a coach and now is knocking on the final four door.
See Calipari at Ky
Pearl at Aub

It is not up to Cragg.

The decision will be made by the St. John's Board of Trustees.

But he needs to be an advocate. If he doesn't fight for it definitely doesn't happen

I'm going to guess that Cragg will indeed select a coach. And review his choices with the BOT and Gempeshaw, who will approve or reject. The way you state it makes it seem like this is out of Cragg's hands. The BOT would not tender an offer to someone Cragg doesn't want it didn't select.

Pitino dirty as hell but then again, nobody really caring about Bruce Pearl’s history, nor anybody else’s. I’m all for Pitino as I don’t think they really connect him with anything there at the Ville. That said, I don’t know if the BOT would go for it, but he sure would bring players here. View it as Tarkanian in his later years lol. He still kept playing and coaching...

Well if Dad is toxic and you think the Bobby board wouldnt approve why not Jr.? He is young? Has done pretty well considering he is stuck in Minn, and has done better job recruiting there than Tubby Smith was able to do. Tubby called it an impossible sell. Ricky from East coast, ties to NYC and that Canada pipeline. Just signed his 3rd extension, and his buyout is 500k for a few more months until it jumps to 2m!
