    Yes, again, SJ is my google. Help me with a list for a freelance story.

    Mid-major coaches who jumped real quick? I have Davis and his one year at Drake, Drew and his one year at Valpo. A couple of others?
    Mid-major coaches who stayed? Larranaga at Mason, Altman at Creighton (except for that one day or so as a Hog). A couple of others?

    Thanks. If you have something snarky to add, please save it for later or use it elsewhere. I'm actually trying to use this board as an actual resource for work.

    If you can make it work, Few at Gonzaga WAS staying at a mid-major before it stopped being a mid-major.
