Lane Casadonte of CBS 6 Richmond reported the following via Twitter late Sunday evening, "Sources tell #CBS6 Sports that #VT's Seth Greenberg is a top candidate for the job at #SMU #ACC".
SMU fired coach Matt Doherty on March 13th after going 80-109 over six seasons. SMU Director of Athletics Steve Orsini stated the following.
"As I have said previously, we have set a goal of top-25 status for our men's basketball program and want to compete for BIG EAST championships. With our membership in one of the best basketball conferences in the nation, the Crum Basketball Center, our $40-plus million renovation of Moody Coliseum and our location in the fertile recruiting grounds of Dallas, we believe we have the pieces for a championship-caliber program."
At first, SMU might sound like an illogical destination for Greenberg. But when you consider SMU is transitioning to the Big East, a premier hoops league, is located in Dallas, and has invested serious dollars into its hoops program, it sounds a little more plausible. It might even remind you of Greenberg's takeover scenario at Virginia Tech sans the gobs of local talent.
