Let’s talk about realistic new coaches, just throw them out for discussion - I have two that come top of mind:
Steve Donahue, Cornell - I really like this guy, completely turned around the Cornell program to compete for NCAA bids on a yearly basis. Seems to fit the PSU mold of doing things the right way. He was the recruiting coordinator under Dunphy at Penn for years.
Scott Drew, Baylor - Probably a tougher get for Curley. Took over a Baylor program which was in awful shape and turned it around. 3 of his first 4 classes were rated among the top 20 nationally!
