On Lebo Watch 2010

Hey everyone. I left Nashville early this morning to get on campus for what will be an eventful day. I consider it very likely (ie >98.5%) that Jeff Lebo will get fired.

I haven't yet confirmed that on the record. Until I do, I must leave the situation open-ended. You know my rules.

The Tigers ended their season with a loss to Florida last night, capping a 15-17 season. Lebo is 96-93 in six seasons on the Plains.

I'll update with information as it becomes available.

Though we haven't yet confirmed that Lebo has been fired, here are some guys you need to know about:

**Chuck Person, special assistant with the L.A. Lakers

**Mike Anderson, coach at Missouri, makes $1.3 million right now and turned down advances from Georgia last year

**Tony Barbee, coach at UTEP and former John Calipari assistant

**Danny Manning, assistant coach at Kansas

**Nate James, assistant coach at Duke

**Johnny Jones, coach at North Texas (headed to the NCAAs) and played at LSU

**Ron Hunter, coach at IUPUI, has won 66 games in three seasons including one NCAA appearance

2:18 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

killingsworth etc. leaving almost immediately said "uh-oh" to me from day one but i just hoped it was malcontent players not wanting to adjust to a new system. prolly a little of both but his lack of success over the longer term kind of validates those players that decided to leave for whatever reason. they saw a better chance of success somewhere else.

Anderson would be a good choice, but the others don't really bring much in my opinion. I would like us to look at the New Mexico and the BYU coaches.

2:19 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Killingsworth didn't exactly light it up after he left, either.

2:20 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Chip, Killingsworth had a poor attitude and didn't want to work hard for Lebo. The story I alwasy heard was that Ellis had been allowing him to pretty much do what he wanted and to work out when ever he wanted instead of with the team.

2:21 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

lebo supposedly had a pretty highly rated bunch coming in next year. that was one of the things folks that wanted to keep him used to make their case. but we've heard this story before.

ellis had wrecked it pretty bad when lebo got here sign juco heavy class after juco heavy class and not developing an internal pipeline. lebo did well with the few bodies he was allowed over the first few years.

Seems like after he left AU, I remember Killingsworth saying something about making it to the NBA and Marquis Daniels saying, "The only way he's getting to the NBA is if he buys a ticket".

i know a few of those players were kinda punks. as i said, some of that was malcontent players. but don't you think calapari has to put up with some s**t from cousins and wall? sometimes as a bball coach you gotta pucker up to get the high profile guys and win games.

I used myself as the source because I AM PHRED. I am a source unto myself.
I think we do have the things we need to attract a good coach. We have A LOT OF MONEY. We also have a BRAND NEW ARENA, and it is seriously bad ass. We have a pretty good recruiting class coming in. But the first two, that makes the deal a deal. We could get somebody good if we are willing to pay for it and he would be walking into an environment (new arena) where he could make himself a legend. Really.

I have no problem with Brady.

2:41 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Yes, a buyout is better than nothing. But I am sure the feeling is more akin to collecting life insurance than it is getting an actual performance bonus.

2:42 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Jimmy - it's Jay's boss, the Montgomery Advertiser that does not allow JGT to post any news without a defined source. I.e. "sources say" just doesn't cut it.

2:42 PM  
Blogger chip chip said...

then just don't ever extend his contract and let it run out. no buyout. then hire new coach. then you impact recruiting etc. not that lebo having job security has improved the talent level he has brought in over the last 4+ years.

tubs and tot still have the undefeated season to their credit.

i have thought every coach since barfield has been a very good fit and just what AU needed at the time he was hired. biggest question to me of all was chiz. no more.

Agreed Steve on the health being part of the problem.

Would Person be a good choice as the basketball coach? He certainly has the name recognition and I don't recall him having the foot in mouth disease of Barkley.

Norm - your assumption is correct. I thought about that right after I hit enter. I thought "Boy, Micheal is going to have a field day with that one."

Jet - if you were talking to me, I'm not hating. He should get his buy out because that was THE DEAL. Deals should not be broken. I was referring to the sympathy comments.

Steve,

Except for Terry Bowden, how many former Auburn head coaches are hated?

Thanks for your "tradition" lesson.

Scott Drew, Scott Drew, Scott Drew.

Say that name over and over hotties, you will like it.

That's my guy, but I could be wishing on a star.

I wish I could offer something here - but I'm not a B'ball fan - but will sit back watch and listen and try to learn.

Keep an eye on the coach from UTEP. Also the assistant at U Tenn.

I don't know anything, but saying keep an eye on them.

Phred ...

Boy, you're strict.

It's not like Lebo ever went duck hunting.

As for examples, Franklin, Borges, Muschamp, and even Chizik come to mind. Yes, the hate was flowing for Chizik when he headed to Texas.

Barbee is a good one, yes.

I was upset When Petrino left...

What if I told you Chuck Person would bring with him a recognizable name from the NBA and college ranks?

i don't hate tot. he could have been better if he had any work ethic while he was there. AU needed a hire like tot and his hot start should have made him and AU take off like a rocket. similarly, tubs looks to have mailed it in after 04 on the trail. bammer had to find a way to take dye down and he and his coaches gave them all the ammo they needed.

fyi, i am reporting to all jeff lebo has been fired.

Apparently Steve's definition of hate is different than mine. I'm sure it's on the only word that might be different, but it is among them.

SteveFC - just because you hated doesn't mean we all hated. Only one name comes to mind that deserved the hate... it's on the tip of my tongue.... oh yes, now I remember... TRAITOR.

Blogger Jet Hates UAT said...

Loganville ... the truth is ... you were right. Petrino is a heckuva coach. He just has wandering eyes like a lot of 'em.

WESLEY PERSON?????

I wonder if we end up going after another up and comer, of if Auburn will go after a successful coach at a decent school.

JGT - what if I told you... NO, PLEASE NO!!!

Not Wesley Person, no.
