Cuonzo Martin at Mizzou is making 3x what CKE is making. If & when it happens, it's the job of Brad Edwards to find the next Coach and not skip a beat. To be more like Butler (Brad Collier > Todd Lickliter > Brad Stevens > Chris Holtman), VCU (Capel > Grant > Smart > Wade > Rhoades) or Xavier (Pete Gillen > Skip Prosser > Thad Matta > Sean Miller > Chris Mack) or Dayton (Oliver Purnell > Brian Gregory > Archie Miller > Anthony Grant) and less like...well....us.
This. Unlike when previous good/great coaches were here - Mason is a different animal.
We are in a better conference - A10
Mason is more visible and relevant regionally - size, notoriety, campus, etc
The new administration is favorable to athletics and is willing to invest - so is the AD.
If KE gives us 2-3 great years and the AD is setting up a process to get an equal replacement - ala VCU, WSU, others - than we are good. It won't be the groin shot that Coach L's leaving was.
