How many coaches have left UVA for another job? The only one that comes to mind is Bruce Arena and that was to coach the Olympic team. Welsh was offered the job at Notre Dame before and chose to stay at UVA. Look at BOC how many jobs has he turned down? Sorry but Bennett is not going to leave.

No idea how many have left, gone, came, etc. One can argue that you guys have only had a select few if any "great" coaches on the hardwood.. Like I said if he is as great as the bball guru's are saying then he will not stay at UVA if a high end coaching vacancy opens up.
THE ONLY THING I'M ADDICTED TO IS WINNING--CHARLIE SHEEN
Ok I retract my opinion on Bennett. ODU? Wow. That's just as terrible as us losing to Ga Southern.
Lol that didn't take long
I was voted this years #1 UVA hater by the Scoop. Thanks every one for helping me achieve number one. I especially would like to thank Playr, Webbi, and That guy from North Carolina :D
Why would he leave? uva can pay as much as any university in the country, Cville is one of the best places to live in the country, one of the nicest arenas in the country, an acedemic reputation that will always help recruiting, etc.... not to mention you do not know him, and what he values in a job. So you can not say with 100 percent certainity he would leave.
UVA values education first and foremost (which isn't a bad thing). Limited basketball tradition. Fan support- so so. Limited resources. Bennettt will have you in the hunt from time to time for the ACC title but that is his ceiling at UVA. Throw in an occasional NCAA appearance. So yes, if a big name school(which UVA isn't) comes for his service then he would be stupid to pass on. But you are correct I do not know Bennett personally but I do know Basketball.

Wow 1-10 odu...didn't see that coming
If he did pass on it why would that be stupid? So you are telling me if you worked for ABC computer company making 1.5 a year as a CEO and apple came to you and said we will pay you 1.5 a year to come be the CEO here you would leave? Some people like to build things their way not manage things built for them.
I honestly have no idea what I would do in this role play scenario. If Bennett wanted to establish his own legacy why didn't he stay at Washington State? (I believe that's where he came from, correct me if I'm wrong). But now a days people don't stay and build a program. Very few exceptions out there (Peterson at Boise St, Boehiem SU).
The money was not the same at Washington St as it was at UVA.
Nor would it be if a big name school came into play for Bennett.
UVA has as much money as any other school and so money would not be an issue
I know money isn't an issue for UVA, but they will not put forth the dough to keep Bennett if a bball powerhouse came into play. For one Littlepage wouldn't even know where to begin with such negotiations.
That's pretty embarrassing.
I can say that since we pulled off the 1 point win over Bradley in OT
both VA teams suck at all relevant sports. depressing
"Just gotta keep balling out"
hey but i love fishing and didn't VT just win the championship or something
Of course. National Bassfishing Champs babyyyyy. Any one drinking any good eggnog? Buddy made some that is like 50% eggs 50% bourbon. WOOO WHEEE
Nice, good stuff..we can agree on some things on here
Even worse. Most unexpected defeat I can remember in quite some time.
I haven't been able to get out and catch the cows that are roaming on the eastern shore right now, hope to next week.
