Journal's McNamara says that after being jilted twice, PC "may want to" tunr to among others -- our man Karl. He's finally at least entered the discussion. Doesn't say PC's considering him, but at least he's now made the discussion. Interestingly, to make my point about how this year has hurt Hobbs, McNamara says:
"Hobbs, a Boston native, is an intriguing coach. Throw out this year and PC probably couldn’t touch him. He’d be too good."
The damage has been pretty significant. Two coaches have to say know before you even hit the rumor mill. However, I think the lack of interest from them has more to do with PC knowing that Hobbs won't play well in Providence. The sidline hysterics, that whole act of his, will go over like a lead balloon there. PC fans are tough. They're constantly on you. With his thin skin, he couldn't manage it there. That's just my opinion.

If Driscoll’s net target is someone he knows will likely take the job, he can turn to a few men he’s already spoken to: Ohio University’s Tim O’Shea, ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla and Albany’s Will Brown. Driscoll met with several other coaches at the Final Four in San Antonio last weekend and contacts he established there will probably be fleshed out. Drake’s Keno Davis, George Washington’s Karl Hobbs, Wright State’s Brad Brownell, Florida associate head coach Larry Shyatt and Syracuse assistant coach Mike Hopkins are coaches PC may wish to add to its list.
