The Coaching Carousel

We here at BU Hoops :: Doggy-style love Coach Dennis Wolff. He's been The Man at BU for 12 seasons and, despite a few blips along the way, usually finds a way to turn in a winning team. But you gotta wonder how much longer before he moves on to greener pastures. Every year, Wolffie is mentioned for this job or that job that has just opened up - Fordham, St. John's and LaSalle all took a sniff, and he's even mentioned as a possible replacement for Jim Calhoun at UConn someday (Wolff played his college ball at UConn). As a NYC native who always seems to have recruiting success there, he's a hot commodity in northeastern college hoops.

With names like Rick Pitino and Mike Jarvis coming through Babcock Street the last few decades, in addition to a long list of assistant coaches who have gone on to head coaching careers, Wolff is just the latest great coach that BU has produced.

BU is Wolff's first head coaching stint, and he's put up big numbers. He's the school's all-time winningest coach, with a record of 192-133. He also has his son Matt on the roster as a sophomore, so we can at least bet on Coach Wolff hanging around for 3 more years.

We think you're great, Coach, but stick around for a while.
