I've touched on a few of those guys earlier in the chat. All I can share on Altman is what I've reported: Multiple sources told me there was mutual interest between Mizzou and Altman early in the process. He's since told another source that he's not leaving Oregon, for what it's worth.
I like a lot about McCasland. He learned from the Baylor system then built a winning program at a place (North Texas) without a history of winning. They will not let him go away without a fight at North Texas. He has a great
relationship with AD Wren Baker.
Golden is intriguing. He's about as different a coach as Martin as you can find, and not because he's young, Jewish and white. He was a walk-on at St. Mary's, worked in the private sector until he met the Pearls, worked his way up at Auburn and headed to San Francisco where he's truly embraced analytics. (Martin's history with Pearl is slightly different: He decided against going to Illinois after Pearl secretly recorded conversations with a recruit then gave those tapes to the NCAA, leading to sanctions at Illinois. Then, many years later, Tennessee fans launched a petition to have Martin fired and replaced with Pearl.)
DeVries is a good coach, runs a strong MVC program. His only time at a high-major program came when Creighton was making the transition from the MVC to the Big East. I'm just not sure he moves the needle enough.
