In this week's Friday Five, we look at five conference realignment moves that have almost no shot of happening but would be best for all involved.
All the latest news regarding the coaches who have been fired or retired and who might replace them, plus the candidates to fill the rest of the open positions in college basketball.
Pacific has hired former NBA Rookie of the Year and current University of Memphis assistant Damon Stoudamire as the head coach of its men's basketball program, a source told CBS Sports on Wednesday.
Pacific has placed head coach Ron Verlin and assistant Dwight Young on suspension as a result of the findings of a cooperative investigation with the NCAA that stems from allegations of academic misconduct.
Pacific might beat a Division I opponent at some point. But it won't be Friday night. So lay the points and take UC Irvine.
Pacific basketball players Sami Eleraky, Alec Kobre and Eric Thompson were all held out of Saturday night's loss to Nevada. That's the result of an ongoing NCAA investigation into Pacific's program, and it's unclear when, or even if, Eleraky, Kobre and Thompson will play again.
Pacific is still without three rotation players because of an NCAA investigation. So Eric Musselman's Nevada Wolf Pack should be able to win by at least four points in Stockton, Calif., late Saturday.
The NCAA's case against SMU, just like its case against Pacific, is rooted in academic fraud allegedly committed via online courses. And there's no reason to believe more cases aren't on the way.
The NCAA is investigating, among other things, allegations of academic misconduct committed by former assistant Joe Ford within Pacific's men's basketball program, a source has told CBS Sports.
