Boyle taking over at Colorado

Posted on: April 19, 2010 12:15 pm

Colorado has scheduled a Monday afternoon press conference to introduce Tad Boyle as its next basketball coach.

Boyle has been at Northern Colorado the past four seasons.

He got the job over Oregon assistant Mike Dunlap and Colorado assistant Steve McClain.

This development leaves Oregon as the lone job open in a BCS-affiliated league. It's been more than six weeks since it was first reported that Oregon would fire Ernie Kent. The school has subsequently been turned down by Mark Few, Brad Stevens, Jamie Dixon and Mike Anderson, and had overtures rejected by Tom Izzo and Billy Donovan, among others.

Should've hired Dunlap!

Nothing against Boyle, but Mike Dunlap would've been a much better choice. He's familliar with the Colorado area as he coached Metro State (division 2) to back to back National Championships. Since then, he's been an NBA assistant, gotten screwed out of the Arizona job and now is getting screwed out of the Oregon job.
Dunlap was a candidate 3 years ago before we hired Jeff Bzdelik.

I'll give him a chance before I make a final judgement, but come on Bohn, Why not Dunlap???
