NC State Still Searching

LavinBoth Steve Lavin and John Beilein have turned down the offer to take the top spot at NC State today. As a State fan and alumnus, I am starting to get worried. So far in our search, we have been turned down by Rick Barnes, a North Carolina native and someone who apparently had let it be known that NC State was his “dream job”. Then John Calipari slimed his way in and used the Wolfpack to get a raise. Now, just as it was seemingly coming to a closeBeilein with the hire of Steve Lavin or John Beilein from West Virginia, Wolfpack fans must now sit back and wait yet again. The trouble with that is that the recruiting season is now fully in swing, and without a captain for the ship, the very future of NC State basketball is being put in jeopardy. AD Lee Fowler is going to have to make a move, and soon. My wish list for the job include Greg Marshall from Winthrop and Derrick Whittenburg, NCSU hero from the 1983 miracle run. He lacks the major head coaching experience, but did a great job in the assistant role at both NC State under Jim Valvano and at Georgia Tech under Bobby Cremins. And the cherry on top, he is supposed to be one heckuva recruiter. Whoever it ends up being, it just needs to end, and soon!
