Buzz Williams’ departure from Marquette set off a flurry of high-profile college basketball coaching changes, but not all the important moves got national headlines. Some of the most dangerous sleeper teams of 2014-15 will be those that brought in new skippers without nearly as much fanfare as Williams got when he arrived at Virginia Tech.
