Guru's College Report: The Guru's 2013-14 Coaching Carousel Roll Call

By Mel Greenberg

And the Guru updates more spinning just before the season tpioff, Thursday, November 7th, with the Xavier vacancy filled, which follows the last update of the creation of vcancies at XXavier and Georgetown and before that the San Jose State hire of Sacramento State coach Jamie Craighead, meaning another D-1 opening needs to be filled there as well.

The opening comments after this note will reflect all the changes as will the boxscores as of the moment with the latest update.


The Guru after initially catching up now updates again the running edition of the Coaching Carousel spins for 2013-14.

The Guru breaks it down into special categories to establish the rookie contenders for Maggie Dixon honors -- the Guru called the last one as soon as the carousel finished its final spin for 2012-13 -- the BCS hires and the other D-1 hires with boxscore breakdowns on the movement.

Playing catch up, initially, the Guru culled the WBCA and ESPN lists -- some apppear on one and not the other -- so if someone vacancy or hire is missing or filled but not listed, feel free to notify the base here.

Though there was a crush early in March, the switches are still running far behind the massive 75 of last season, including 40-some rookies. In fact, the filled vacancy on Thursday at Xavier, means the overall Dixon contenders will reach only a total of 28.

Overall, the total when newly-created vacancy at Georgetown and previous and still existing vacancy at Sacramento State is filled will be 52, now almost comprable to the number of some 50 plus schools which underwent new conference identities July 1.

Three names repeat because Mississippi's Matt Insell, Washington's Mike Neighbors, and Xavier's Brian Neal are BCS hires and rookie candidate. With Xavier now in the new Big East and Georgetown in the same spot the question may have to be resolved if the Big East can still be considered BCS after the breakup but for now it will remain as was until some determination is made. The current Carousel will stay in spin mode until some point early in the 2013-14 seaason.

Jamie Craighead, obviously, is not a rookie, and furthermore Barb Smith is not listed as a rookie because of a previous stint in her life as a D-1 coach and same for Cindy Stein and Candi Whitaker and Pat Coyle.

The purest rookie is Sheryl Swoopes, one of the all-time greats, who in the manner of the fabled Dawn Staley back in 2000, is becoming a head coach at Loyola, Chicago, without ever serving over or on the staff of another program.

This is updated through November 8 but kept here in the original posting date. So here we go.
