Arkansas and Texas A&M have their coaches


Recommended Posts

Interesting hire for AR - Pelphrey's last season at South Al produced a RPI of 131, a record of 18-11 and a conference record of 13-6 (second place finish)in a conference ranked 20th with a SOS of 19. Did they win their conference tourney this year? If not his situation seems rather pedestrian. AR must have really been desperate. I really don't know much about this guy - maybe his long term track record at South Al was very good.

At Arkansas, "up tempo" is the idol before which they all bow. Filling up the place is the immediate concern.

Pelphrey has been a back burner choice for multiple jobs. Things fell into place for him. He knows Jimmy Dykes well, who is part of the Arkansas search committee. He has recomenations from former coaches he played for and coached uner....Eddie Sutton, Rick Pitino, Billy Donovan.
