That would make 3 NCAA teams in 3 years. I wonder when the last time a coach did that.

Well, I hope he gets the job. He clearly wants to get back to a high profile position and Michigan is certainly that.

Rumor here in Southern Illinois is that Chris Lowery from SIU is the front-runner for the Michigan job.

GO OWLS!!!

I don't know about this one. FAU was one thing but he is already talking about Michigan. WOW, if that is true how long before he leaves there :o

Michigan is just a stepping-stone to Notre Dame, a job which might lead to him getting hired at North Carolina.

I asked a few big sports fans at work here in Illinois if they knew anything about this and they said they didn't.

I did read an assistant of Doherty was mentioned as a candidate for a Michigan State assistant coach. Mike Garland.

It doesn't make sense to me that Doherty would be a candidate after a mediocre season at a school with no basketball prowess.

Exactly, he didn't do anything at SMU to make him a candidate for the Michigan job. Right now Chris Lowery of SIU has to be the top guy for both the Michigan and Iowa head coaching jobs. He led SIU a final regular season ranking of #11, took them to the sweet 16, beat Virginia Tech twice (once in the regular season and again in the tournament), and he led SIU to within 3 points of upsetting Kansas who at the time was the #1 team in the country. Compare this to what Doherty has done in his last two jobs and it is easy to see why Lowery is a top pick for the two BIG TEN openings. Add to that the fact that Bruce Weber went to Illinois from SIU and Matt Painter went to Purdue from SIU and Lowery is a logical choice to head to the BIG TEN.

As an employee and fan of SIU I hope that he stays, but SIU can never come close to offering the same kind of money that big time BIG TEN programs can offer.

GO OWLS!!!
