Yeah, it hasn't been since 2000 that a Purdue coach has tried to be poached. Tiller was a hot commodity after 3 or 4 years at Purdue but wanted to stay at Purdue. Hope was a disaster (not of his own doing) and Hazel was just the epitome of pouring gas on a fire bad. Jim Coletto wasn't going to be hired by anyone and Fred Akers before him was Hazel-esqe in his ineptitude.When? Not being a smarta$$ just curious because the only instance I remember is a few rumors of Matt Painter talking with other schools but he stayed at Purdue.....which happens to be his alma mater. Funny how that worked out.
This is the first time in my 34 years that Purdue football has had to deal with this and only the second time the major revenue sports has (Matt Painter and Missouri). The only one you could point to would be Women's Basketball with Lyn Dunn, Carolyn Peck, and Kristy Curry. And that's me trying REALLY HARD to make an argument for Purdue athletics.
