CSU needs a basketball coach. Mike Dunlap needs a chance in D-1. It would be an ideal marriage.
Dunlap coached Denver’s Metro State College to two Division II titles (and three trips to the final) while winning 248 games and losing only 50 from 1997-2006. He should have been given his chance to lead a D-1 team years ago.
One of the main reasons CSU should hire Dunlap is he would arrive in Fort Collins with plans to stay. Tim Miles did strong work at CSU, but you had the feeling he started thinking about his next step on the coaching ladder the minute he arrived in Colorado. (Miles is now working at the University of Nebraska.)
Dunlap might leave. It’s a possibility.
But it’s not a probability. He’s done superb work at Metro State and solid work with the Nuggets.
“There is absolutely no one better,” said Nuggets coach George Karl.
Dunlap should be CSU’s next basketball coach.
