A perfect match, to a degree

Now that Billy Gillispie is officially in Texas Tech's rearview mirror, Andy Katz offers up some names as his replacement. One is Coach Reggie.

Stream of consciousness thoughts on this pairing: Reggie Theus needs to get back into coaching somewhere and not as an assistant ... Texas Tech needs to make a splash but one that will also provide fulfillment ... Theus won't stay all that long if he can bring success to a program starved of such but that would take 3-4 years, so is that worth it to TT? ... Theus also needs, if at all possible at this age, to become less high maintenance because such is the last thing Tech's AD needs ... Evans and Sadler are possibilities but what indications are there on the résumé of each that either could turn the Red Raiders into a consistent winner? Evans couldn't do it at Arizona State while Sadler posted a winning record at Nebraska but never made an NCAA appearance (his predecessor earned five Big Dance invites) ... Theus would attract better talent plus transfers than most any other candidate
