Gambling Odds To Be UNC’s Next Head Coach

The University of North Carolina needs a head basketball coach now that Roy Williams is riding off into the sunset with 903 career wins and three national championships. Got any guesses as to who Williams’ replacement might be? If you do, you should consider placing a wager on his successor as the head coach of the Tar Heels.

A program that likes to keep things in the family, three former UNC players head the list of candidates on the odds board over at BetOnline.ag:

Hubert Davis 1/1
Wes Miller 11/4
Jerry Stackhouse 6/1
Mark Turgeon 9/1
Mark Few 10/1
Scott Drew 12/1
Steve Robinson 12/1
Jay Wright 14/1
Jerod Haase 14/1
Mike White 14/1
Tony Bennett 14/1
Rick Pitino 18/1
Nate Oats 20/1
Bill Self 25/1
Brad Stevens 33/1
Buzz Peterson 33/1
Kenny Smith 33/1
Michael Jordan 500/1
Vince Carter 500/1

Rick at 18/1 won’t happen, but it’d be wild.

    100% chance they go woke. Gonna be Hubert, Stackhouse (LOL), or Kenny Smith.

    Mike White being on any lists is hysterical.

    Rick is too old. Not a chance. Hubert would be good for UK. He has no head coaching experience. But who knows maybe he’ll be Juwan Howard. But hopefully more like Stackhouse.

      How would Hubert be good for UK? Too much pressure with no experience

      I meant he wouldn’t be good for UNC. They’d struggle helping UK beat them and gain more wins up on them.

      I agree. I hope Hubert is their guy. Better for UK

    My money is on Stackhouse and an ensuing dumpster fire.

    Chris Mack. Take him UNC!!

    Nate Oats would be the smart hire.

    Michael Jordan would add fuel to the corruption fire that is UNC; ole Huckleberry Hound should have endured penalty phases at Kansas and UNC. I’m not sure Stackhouse has proven himself yet. Drew would be a good hire; but he’s not a turdheel…nor are most of these ‘candidates’. UNC knew who they would replace Deputy Dog’s Stunt Double with years ago.

    Isn’t Chris Mack the hottest thing out there.

      wakegupper – Affirmative, according to his wife, Eric (‘sgot) Wood (4mack), and his own stunt double… Terry ‘doobie brother’ Meiners.

    Stackhouse would be a horrible choice. He should have stuck with G league coaching.

    Stackhouse would be a horrible choice. He should have stuck withe G league coaching.

      He should and I think the Coach at UNC Charlotte is a former player.

    Pretty Rick would get them going. Brad Steven’s overrated.

      What has butler done since he left? Nada.

      The question should be what has brad Steven’s done since he left butler? He’s an average nba coach.

    We should start rumor in indiana that Brad Stevens is wanting it.

    The top four all sound like ridiculous choices. Wes Miller? First five years at Greensboro were losing records. That’s funny.

    This preoccupation Kentucky fans have with North Carolina and Duke is really embarrassing. Your jealousy is obvious.

      You have a preoccupation with the genitalia of farm animals.

    They stick with the Carolina family. Davis is a lock.

    Surprising to me that Johnny Dawkins is not bring considered ?

    The entire NCAA better hope it isn’t Pitino. With UNC recruiting, his coaching ability, UNC administration & the NCAA’s willingness to look the other way for UNC outright cheating they may be unstoppable.
