The following question is always a fun one to try to answer:
When X coach decides to leave, who will replace him?
We recently answered that question for college football’s top programs, attempting to predict who will replace Nick Saban at Alabama, Urban Meyer at Ohio State, Les Miles at LSU, Jim Harbaugh at Michigan, Charlie Strong at Texas, etc.
Many of our predictions probably won’t end up being true, but hey, that’s why they’re predictions. You can see them all here.
We thought that now, in the thick of the NCAA Tournament, would be a good time to do the same thing for college basketball’s top programs.
So here are our predictions for the next head coaches at the sport’s premier programs. This is not a if X leaves tomorrow, who would replace him? hypothetical but rather a when X eventually leaves – next year, in five years, whenever – who will replace him?
Here they are.
