At last, they meet: Woolard, Heath talk



The Bulls seek a replacement for Robert McCullum, who was fired March 9 after four seasons, including a 4-28 record in two seasons of Big East play. Woolard is not commenting on candidates during the hiring process.

And one bonus note: I'm always curious to see how the South Florida vacancy is viewed nationally -- I tend to think of the current midmajor openings as largely unattractive ones, so I figure Kentucky, Michigan, Arkansas, Colorado and Iowa are seen as better jobs, but not much else. But check out this paragraph from Friday's Chicago Tribune, in a story about the slew of coaching vacancies:

"Just six involve high-profile programs—Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan and Minnesota—and the rest are at places like Chicago State, Georgia State, Hawaii, Iona, Quinnipiac, Radford and Southern Utah."

Well. No love for the Bulls there, at least not the same love given to ... Radford (which got filled last week) or ... Southern Utah? Georgia State actually got Rod Barnes, a solid hire, but I think any job in the Big East is good enough to make it on a list of top openings right now ...

I'm a bit surprised we haven't seen any other media outlets discovering who these other schools are that might be courting Stan Heath. Or at least no outlets that can be seen by the far-reaching eye of Google News ... I leave for the women's Final Four in Cleveland on Friday, so trying to track down this coach gets a little more challenging over the weekend ...
