We’ve entered March Madness 2022 with the bracket officially set but many programs are already heading into the offseason with coaching changes. Here’s a look at the openings in college basketball this offseason, with more expected as the NCAA Tournament moves along.
Previous Coach: LaVall Jordan
After making the NCAA Tournament in his first season, Jordan has failed to make Butler a consistent contender in the Big East. After back-to-back sub-.500 campaigns, he’s out.
Previous Coach: Jamion Christian
After three poor seasons, Christian is out at George Washington. We’ll see where the Colonials go for their next head coach.
Previous Coach: Clayton Bates
Bates resigned after taking this job in 2020, so this is a quick turnaround for the Broncos. We’ll see who they tab next for the position.
Previous Coach: Mo Williams
Williams leaves for the gig at Jackson State, similar to how Georgia took Mike White from Florida. Alabama State missed out on the SWAC conference tournament, which tells you where this program is.
Previous Coach: Mark Gottfried
Gottfried couldn’t resurrect his career at CSNorthridge and is out.
Previous Coach: Lamont Paris
After a first-round exit at the hands of Illinois, Paris took over the job at South Carolina. That leaves the Mocs searching for a new head coach.
Previous Coach: Dennis Gates
Gates took the job at Missouri, so Cleveland State will tasked with replacing him.
Previous Coach: Brian Katz
Katz is retiring after 12 seasons, so this is another gig that is going to be interesting for the successor.
Previous Coach: Sam Scholl
Scholl was always facing an uphill climb in the WCC and had some initial success but eventually wasn’t able to build on that.
Previous Coach: Shaheen Holloway
After an Elite Eight run, Holloway is off to his alma mater Seton Hall. The Peacocks are set up well to be a conference mainstay for whoever takes over next.
