You follow Vanderbilt basketball closely?
3 years ago, Iowa ended up choosing Lickliter from Butler over Stallings to be the basketball coach. After Lickliter was fired last week, Stallings' name has been mentioned prominently as a likely candidate.

If you know,
1. What is Stallings' current annual pay?
2. How many years are left in his contract?
3. Are the Vandys going to fight to keep him if Iowa's AD puts on a bull rush for him? My sources seem to think that Iowa will be looking to pay $1.5M up to $2M to get the guy that they really want.

Personally . . . I'd offer up the house to go after UT's Bruce Pearl (former Iowa assistant) but I'm not so foolish to think that he'd leave a great situation in Knoxville to rehabilitate a team on life support in Iowa City.

I'm afraid I don't know enough about that situation. Vandy men's basketball was only okay when I was in school, and they were never this good until recently. As a result, I never developed an interest in following the program. But I would like to think that Stallings has a pretty good setup in Nashville, so I would be surprised to see him leave Vanderbilt for Iowa.
