Personally, given the amount of money being thrown around, I think he’d be

Pretty nuts to leave a VERY stable situation at a State’s flagship school as a #1 assistant working for the [by far] most successful coach in school history (who also happens to be a younger guy).

Frankly ... the type of money that he’d make if he took the LSU job if they fired Will Wade is life changing money. Even if he flames out miserably, he can just retire knowing his kids (and probably their kids) will never need to worry about money. The same is very much not the case for UWGB. If he takes a pay cut and doesn’t work out there, he’s sitting there as a 60-something year old looking for a job as an assistant somewhere. Obviously, he’d be in high demand as an assistant and have no trouble finding work, but he has to move his family (again) who knows where. Maybe it’s Iowa, maybe it’s Texas, etc...

For somebody in their late 50’s ... that’s a lot of certainty to give up. I’d rather compete for championships in Cville.
