10 NCAA Men's Basketball Programs That Will Need New Coaches

First let me state that I believe too often that college and pro sports teams get rid of their coaches too soon. They hire someone and expect immediate results. The reason these teams hired a new coach is because they weren't very good. It takes more than spraying some magic pixie dust to turn it around.

A perfect example is Rich Rodriguez. I believe Michigan should have given him one more year. He had to come to Michigan and implement an entire new system. So basically, he was starting from scratch. The first year, he won three games. The second year, he won five. And the third, he won seven. So logic would dictate that given one more year, he would have won nine games. But the fans couldn't wait.

That being said, sometimes it's obvious that more time just isn't going to make any difference. Phil Fulmer, for example, was given plenty of time. Time enough to see what his program would always be with him running it. Inconsistent.

Here are 10 schools who are facing that situation in men's basketball, or will lose a good coach to others who will be facing it.
