Biggest recruiting questions facing new coaches

Can Josh Pastner keep top talent in Georgia? Will Tubby Smith change his recruiting philosophy at Memphis? New coaches face some difficult questions.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Pittsburgh signee Justice Kithcart has reopened his recruitment, his father told ESPN. Kithcart was a four-star point guard who pledged to the Panthers under Jamie Dixon last September. Former Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings replaced Dixon on Sunday. "After talking to Coach Stallings he feels that's what he want to do," James Kithcart said.

Stallings joins Pitt, signs 6-year deal

Former Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings has agreed to a 6-year deal to replace Jamie Dixon at Pittsburgh, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman. Stallings, 55, was with Vandy for 17 seasons and made the NCAA tournament seven times.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

So, let me try and get this straight. Todd Turner ran the search for Pittsburgh AD Scott Barnes -- who just hired Kevin Stallings. Turner hired Kevin Stallings when he was the AD at Vandy in the late 1990s. Then Turner went to Washington where he was the AD (hired in 2004) and Barnes was a senior associate AD (hired in 2005). Now it makes sense, I guess.

Kevin Stallings a candidate at Pitt

The Vanderbilt coach is in the mix for the Pittsburgh job, multiple sources told ESPN's Jeff Goodman. He has been the Commodores head coach for 17 seasons and gone to the NCAA tournament seven times. The job is open after Jamie Dixon left the school last week to become TCU's head coach.
