In case you are wondering, Parker search is the one who hires Presidents, Athletic Directors and also coaches. Fogler also helps run events.
Texas A&M Antwon Space transferring, source told ESPN.
George Mason. Future. Introduction. Setting. http://t.co/kmaVy7D1wH
Part of an athletic director's job is to be prepared to hire coaches. Should have a network, so no reason to hire a search firm.
Can’t believe I just heard the story about Mark Cuban opening a bar at IU as a student for the first time.
(Atlanta has the right to swap picks with Brooklyn, via the Joe Johnson trade).
Another search firm also helps run an exempt event. (can you say "conflict of interest."
One current search firm hires president of university, then the president hires them to hire the AD, then the AD hires them to find coach.
Notre Dame's Pat Connaughton confirmed for 3-point shooting contest Thursday at Hinkle. Too bad they don't have a pitch-speed competition.
Who wants in with me on my search firm? We work about two months of the year and rack in cash. Go to beach the rest of the year!!!
SporthSouth will televise the April 8 Hornets-Raptors game that ESPN dropped from its schedule.
Fun late-season quirk: Hawks face Nets twice, including on a back-to-back 4/8. ATL is resting guys, but has incentive to boot BKN to lotto.
Brian Hartline with a nice billboard to Miami Dolphins fans, thanking them. Still waiting on hometown guy Brian Hoyer's billboard...
Heard about this "Candy Crunch" so I went to 7-11 and couldn't find any I asked if they had any in stock.To quote Neil Funk.I'm a "Mor..on"
I think I'm going to start a search firm. Talk about easy money.
My bad on that and apologies to Eddie Fogler: Liberty used Todd Turner and Dave Odom to re-hire Ritchie McKay. Great job, guys.
Devyn Marble (eye) is visiting the Magic's shootaround this morning. He's happy to be back, & teammates were happy to see him.
Liberty hires Eddie Fogler's search firm to re-hire Ritchie McKay and DePaul hires Parker Search to get Dave Leitao back. Brilliant.
Remember, Ritchie McKay left the Liberty head job to become an assistant at Virginia - shortly after Seth Curry transferred out.
So, the trend this year: NBA guys (Chris Mullin and Mark Price) and re-hires (Dave Leitao and Ritchie McKay). I'm not liking it. At all.
Liberty is re-hiring Ritchie McKay, sources confirmed to ESPN. Amazing.
1. Woke up. 2. Checked Twitter. 3. Saw an April Fools joke. 4. See y'all tomorrow.
Mama there goes that birthday boy.
Warriors or the field?
It’s April. The NBA playoffs begin this month. No foolin’.
Logging off the internet until it is no longer April Fools' Day
Daily reminder that a huge number of people still think "pause" jokes are hilarious.
Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) practiced yesterday and appears highly likely to play tonight vs the Spurs.
Eastern Washington's Tyler Harvey is set to declare for the NBA Draft, source told ESPN. Will not yet sign with agent.
one of my favorite/worst annual features is knock-knock-knockin' on Twitter's door
With W tonight, Cs can grab tiebreaker from IND/go 2 gms up on Pacers. With L, would prolly fall 1.5 gms behind BK. Nets have the Knicks
The only fool today is the goofball not pushing our littlest one and snapping this pic instead: http://t.co/MqiAHSxtgh
Got an exclusive early copy of the Boogie Smooth album that got delayed for a year. It's flames so far.
Little Jarrod wishes you all a good morning. He's made every morning great for us http://t.co/uzPT6U6OpF
Try not to get fooled out there today, guys. Lot of foolers fooling around.

Liberty announcing coach today. School willing to pay big money. Swung and missed on many. Would not be shocked to see Ritchie McKay return.
LeBron is essentially the QB for any team he's part of.
Headed out to the big Rick Pitino press conference at Carnesecca today. Think it starts at 1:30.
I'd be curious to see what happens if a team uses the '05-Mavs-on-Nash strategy with GSW: let Curry go off, take everyone else away.
How is LeBron calling his plays any different from Peyton Manning doing it?
I still don't understand what happened to Andris Biedrins' career.
Clippers have to be demoralized by last night's loss. What could they have done any better? And yet, GSW beat ‘em without Draymond.
How else would the players ever figure it out?
If they stay healthy and unsuspended (is that a word), Boys now have three absolute blue chip badasses in their front 7 + Crawford emerging
I think the best head-coaching technique is the one where they point + wave toward the end of the court where the players should be running.
3. Brek Shea: Scored two game winners in the year leading up to the World Cup. USMNT needed to score, needed game winners. Shea is a winner.
2. Eddie Johnson: Klinsmann did not bring a backup for Altidore. Johnson was his backup. Only Dempsey scored more in 4 years of qualifying.
1. Donovan: He proved during MLS season he still had something in the tank. Most USMNT players on their best day will never be as composed.
My top three players that should not have been left off the World Cup roster: 1. Landon Donovan 2. Eddie Johnson 3. Brek Shea. Notes follow:
USMNT could have really used a win away against a top 20 side to create positive story lines. Playing a man down it was target practice.
The Warriors are basically in cruise control & are 12-1 against the league's top 15 teams (those over .500) since the All-Star break.
KD to Revolt TV on winning in OKC: “If we ever win a championship I feel we’ll be heroes. I feel like we’d resurrected a city that was down"
Kawhi's D last night was ridiculous, especially in 3Q. It's like a giant octopus is guarding you.

Allen Iverson during his MVP season or Stephen Curry this season?
I need a haircut
James Corden's Late Late Show has already lapped Late Night with Seth Myers, right?
Top scorer for Kazan - Keith Langford - is inactive tonight vs Gran Canaria, a source said.
2:30AM. Just landed in Portland. Ohmeomy!
CSKA announce Andrey Kirilenko has shifted positions into assistant coach. April 1st troll.
Would really really really really love to see Chris Paul play Kevin Hart one-on-one tomorrow.
Klay Thompson on Stephen Curry: "Man, his handles are crazy. To make someone like Chris Paul fall is pretty impressive."
"As soon as I saw him go down, I knew I had to shoot it"
Blake Griffin: "In a seven-game series, I like our odds against anybody."
Blake Griffin on if anything GSW did tonight rubbed him wrong: "We've had our things in the past, but tonight was pretty straightforward."
Blake Griffin on Warriors having many fans at Staples: "I don't know as far as what we can do, but it'd be great if it wasn't that way."
Don't sweat the small stuff? That's BS. You can/should be able to control small stuff. It's the BIG stuff you can't control. Sweat that.

Wale is one of them dudes that makes you think about life when you listen to his music
This new Wale album = crack
"Oh no, I wrecked your car!!" "What??" "April Fools!!" (Sigh) "But seriously, I wrecked your car."
Blake Griffin: "It would be great if it wasnt that way. Its kind of like when we play the Lakers. It would be great if it wasn’t like that."
Blake Griffin: “Home court advantage is just not there for us. If that’s how it feels in the playoffs it’s not looking good.”
Yes, I think Stephen Curry has passed Chris Paul as the NBA's best point guard. No, I don't think one crossover is an important indicator.
CP3 being a good sport about Steph's crossover. Happens to everybody.
Not saying, just saying: Chris Paul was plus 4. Stephen Curry was minus 1. Both scored 27 points. Paul had nine assists, Curry had four.
Doc Rivers: "That is what they are. They are shot makers. It was hard to turn them off."
DeAndre Jordan: "We're going to see them later on down the line, so we have to just be able to take the punches."
Warriors' consistency is exceptional. Pre-ASW: +10.9 point differential & .824 Win% Post-ASW: +10.6 point differential & .826 Win%
UPDATE: The Wolves have fallen 45 games back of the Warriors.
More Rivers: "When you play a team like that and youre holding them down, at some point they are going to start making shots."
Rivers: "They kind of flipped the switch, but we flipped off the switch in my opinion."
Stephen Curry on the play with Chris Paul: "I snaked through the paint and kind of was just probing."
50 years ago, no one sees Chris Paul fall except people in the stadium—maybe they tell a few friends. Now, the whole globe sees immediately.
anyway... *cues up Kentucky film*
"Never Can Say Goodbye" is probably my favorite Jackson 5 song of all-time. Either that or Who's Loving You. So many hits, though.
The Warriors are 5.5 games up on the Hawks for the NBA’s best record with eight to play.
Curry is 31 for 50 from 3 over his last 6 games (62 percent) He is up to 251 threes. He needs 22 to break his own record with 8 games left
The Spurs' five titles have come with three No. 1 seeds, a No. 2 seed and a No. 3 seed. Of course, they now are 2.5 games out of the No. 2.
Talked to someone within the Warriors organization today who said 60 wins feels like looking at a video game or some type of fantasy game.
I'm not predicting anything yet, but what opponent wins a playoff game at Oracle? Not the one that played the Warriors tonight.
That was an Alpha Dog win by GSW. Nothing to play for anymore, no Draymond, then Doc chirps pregame and they took it personally. Great team.

Don't worry, the Iguodala flop call was just a preemptive April Fools joke.
