We wouldn't really consider Richard Pitino, right?

His six years at Minnesota are worse than Mike’s 8 years as best as they can be compared.
He’s made the tournament twice - lost in the first round once and the second round once.
He made one NIT, which he won, in his first year.
He has missed postseason play entirely three times.
His overall record is 112-92 (.549%) and his conference record is 40-70 (.364%).
His finishes in the Big10 are: 7th, T-10th, 13th, 4th, T-11th, and 7th.
His recruiting has been average, with no top 25 classes.
I certainly hope he is not a candidate here because there is nothing to indicate that he would raise the program to a higher level than Mike had it, and in fact, it looks like it would likely become worse.

Ray Tucker was talking about him on DTS yesterday afternoon. He said he would never watch a Razorback game with Richie as the coach after having seen him coaching a Sun Belt team. It says a lot.
