WKU fans thoughts on Darrin Horn
Darrin Horn's name has cropped up as a possible replacement for Jason Capel at App State. Any thoughts?

#12 WKU 101 #5 Drake 99 OT. Probably the greatest NCAA Tourney game involving a Sun Belt Team in modern times. You still see the final shot to win that game in CBS roll of NCAA highlights.

WKU Went to the sweet 16 that year before losing to top seeded UCLA.

I'm not a hilltopper, but as a cajun fan who faced him multiple times, the dude knows how to coach and I think would be a fantastic hire for App. Yall will definitely improve as a program under his watch.

Heck if I know. I just know he's taken an SBC Team farther in the NCAA's than anyone else has in a long time.

Dang it, thought you were a pretty big basketball fan. Figured you had run across him some.

RE: WKU fans thoughts on Darrin Horn
At least a week ago our AD had mentioned hiring someone with a lot of knowledge of the SBC,
so he evidently was Charlie Cobb's main basketball coach prospect long before Lutz said he
was not a candidate a couple of days ago.

RE: WKU fans thoughts on Darrin Horn
darrin was the one of the youngest if not the youngest head coach in america when he took the job here. he was a beloved former player under ralph willard. very hardnosed player.

very arrogant as a head coach. i met him on a few occasions and he didn't come across that way to me but too many stories from around town and the basketball offices for it not to be partially true.

had a good eye for talent. picked up courtney lee (pbuh) who was obviously a miss by the big boys. courtney (pbuh) plays for memphis in the association now. also signed jeremy evans, a beanpole pogo stick out of a small school in arkansas. jeremy plays for the jazz now.

he had some very good offensive teams but couldn't coach dee to save his life. his last year he picked up scott cherry as an assistant and our dee improved enough for us to make the sweet 16 run.

the sweet 16 run gave him the job in south carolina which is a coaches graveyard in hoops.

he's done tv work for espn the last couple years. i personally liked darrin but word was that if he didn't get the south cackalacky job he was gonna get heat from the administration. he was winning 20 games a year but even with anthony winchester and courtney lee (pbuh)....two of my all time top 10 hilltoppers he'd never made the tourney until his last year.

i'd honestly be surprised his ego would permit him to drop back down but maybe he's matured and been humbled by his exit from the sec. i wish him luck and will definitely follow him wherever he goes when he decides to get back in the game.

Haha..Really? No Horn was a really good recruiter but we nicknamed him HorNit.....We had a lot of talent and only 1 NCAA to show for it and he was very fortunate we hit that shot to start our deep run in the tournament...Horns teams were pretty good on offense even though we mostly ran a three man weave up top....Defense was a different story, his teams we were soft on defense...Horn could be a very good assistant, but I think I would move off him as far as Head coach again....

Really suprised he would get back into coaching, he seemed to be doing a good job broadcasting, showed more personality there than I ever saw in his 4 seasons at WKU...
