Yesterday news came out that ESPN analyst Doug Gottlieb has some interest in the opening at Kansas State, and if you’re on Twitter you’ve likely seen the #Gottlieb4KSU hashtag floating around.
Now there’s a website: hiregottlieb.com.
And while this may seem to be a joke, how about the odds provided by BeyondTheBets.com? BTB has placed 3-to-1 odds on Gottlieb getting the head coaching job, which ties him with Brad Underwood.
Underwood was the associate head coach under Frank Martin, who took the job at South Carolina. As a letter-winner at Kansas State one would think that Underwood would be a good option for AD John Currie to choose.
But could the support for Gottlieb amongst a segment of the K-State fan base result in him getting the job? You never know.
Other coaches on the BTB odds list include Colorado head coach Tad Boyle (8/1), Xavier head coach Chris Mack (20/1) and Duke assistants Chris Collins and Steve Wojciechowski (both at 50/1).
Not sure if anyone imagined the Kansas State head coach search becoming this entertaining at the beginning of the week.
