Anyone who has discussed our head coach search with me knows that my #1 choice from the onset was Kevin Willard so I am pleased that he was chosen. I said on this board that as soon as he got onto campus the game was over. I love being right. I definitely would have been happy with Mike Rice, but I steadfastly believed that Willard was the guy. We should be careful to not underestimate the coaching tree that he comes from. It is hard to argue with the success of Pitino disciples.
