Candid Coaches: What are the best three basketball jobs in the country?

What are the top three college basketball jobs in the country? It's hard to take issue with Kentucky, Duke and North Carolina finishing first, second and third, and Kentucky and UNC are no-brainers, I think, if only because every man who has coached either of those schools for at least five seasons has won a national championship dating back more than 50 years.

Lucas: Church Knows Tar Heel Passion

Eric Church is still mad about 1987. That’s all you really need to know about his level of dedication to Carolina basketball. He’s toured around the world, he’s won the Academy of Country Music award for album of the year, and he’s had six number-one singles. And he’s still ticked about 1987.

Rob Keys has always been eager to try cutting-edge concepts. The University of Findlay football coach’s latest idea might just be the most eye-opening experience yet.

The idea first came to Keys after UNC men’s basketball coaching legend Dean Smith died in February. (The Courier)
