    Most reporters don’t have to name sources directly, and then there’s blowhard homers like Robin Washut who only have a following due to the facade of being some kind of “insider” who have to keep that facade alive at all costs.

    Zeigler currently being unemployed likely makes it easier for him to take the job. His connections and previous experience makes him seem like really good get.

    He’ll be getting paid for 2 years regardless. That’s the industry standard

    For the record, I was told 4 names here right before Washut said Steadman was a finalist but didn’t get the job. So for what it’s worth, here’s who I was told to watch for.

    Jai Steadman- most recently an assistant coach at Maine. Was a finalist but didn’t get it per Washut

    Jay Hernandez - assistant coach for the Charlotte Hornets who played with Fred in Chicago in 01-02. Similar coaching wise to Loenser, heavy on player development.

    Ernie Zeigler - Most recently an assistant coach at Mississippi State from 2015 to this past season. Was not retained by Chris Jans after Ben Howland was fired in March.

    Emmanuel Tommy - recently got hired as Director of Player development, likely would’ve gotten the bump up to 3rd assistant if they struggled to find anybody from outside.

    Out of those 4, Zeigler makes the most sense given his experience and recruiting background. If anybody heard any other names, I’m genuinely curious to hear whom. Hope it wasn’t anybody thinking that Derrin Hansen got a call just because he’s also currently without a job and happens to be close by.

    I'd say there is a good chance at an announcement today.

    The guy I'm hearing is Ernie Zeigler. You might remember that name from when he was the coach at Central Michigan in 2011-12 as they came to play in the Bob during Doc's last year.  At the time he was coaching his son Trey.  Otherwise he's been an assistant under Ben Howland in three different places, most recently Mississippi St. (Ironically, David Anwar is one assistant who replaced him)
     
    He's known as a recruiter so it's a fairly high profile grab at this point if that's the hire.

    Steadman's been too busy rolling Oprah in flour for the last 40 years to be considered a viable candidate for an assistant coaching position. Even here.

    3 weeks later and we haven’t even heard a peep here. Hopefully we get some news here somewhat soon. Should be easier to lock someone up now that the live periods are done for the summer.

    On this message board it's easy enough to review something you've written and revise or remove it, especially when it won't be missed.

    Tough to say no to joining a staff that has had assistants jump to head coaching jobs each of the last few years, a better program, and pay bump.

    Also probably likely that a major part of Dana’s sell was, “hey remember when Miles hired you to recruit? You can come here and recruit for the first time in 4 years.”

    A somewhat odd end to the somewhat odd tenure of Armon which started with him being at Florida for less than a Burno before coming here
