Sports Illustrated and CBS Sports' Seth Davis, an extremely smart and likable college-basketball reporter you'll be seeing a ton of this month, tweeted this morning some scoop on the open coaching job at DePaul University in Chicago. ESPN analyst Steve Lavin is a candidate, and so is Oregon State coach Craig Robinson, also known as the First Brother-in-Law. Who isn't a candidate, despite his plaintive overtures? Our old pal Isiah Thomas; according to Davis, "admin cool to him," which is Twitter-speak for "LMAO." How's Isiah doing at Florida International, you ask? The Golden Panthers are 7–24 and 4–14 in the Sun Belt conference, where they're about to be the No. 12 seed in the tournament. Oh, and he was ejected from a game Thursday. He is, however, recruiting like crazy down there, which would mean more if he weren't clearly so desperately trying to leave.
