Glenn’s Final Notes On State Search

This should be the final post on the curious NC State coaching search. David Glenn, the top ACC reporter going right now – and it’s not close – put up two articles of miscellaneous notes about the search on his blog.
The first part is here and Part II is here. I think you’ll find the most interesting stuff on the second half. Evidently, although State nearly got Rick Barnes and thought they had John Calipari, the closest they came to getting someone before Sidney Lowe was John Beilein.
Another tidbit I did not know (but had heard only rumors about) is that State did in fact contact Tubby Smith.
Part I talks a bit about why Frank Haith’s name kept coming up – evidently a lot of reporters simply like the man. I guess they ignored the fact that he hasn’t proven to be an above-average coach.
