You can negotiate through an agent, I believe, without technical violation of the items on your list. Once the season is over, you ask the coach's school for permission to talk, and the coach takes a look at the frame work of the deal, a few changes are made and within a few days you have your coach. I never liked the way Hamilton conducted business, interviewing all those coaches. You should send out feelers, figure out who's interested, get the agent for your number one choice on the phone, get a framework for a contract in place, then ask for permission to speak to the coach, who you're pretty sure is going to say yes. You get your new coach and you don't have to clean any egg off your face because guys like Calhoun or Brewster come out and say they're not interested, like they did the second time around, or a guy like Muschamp tells you he's not interested, but recommends someone else.
As to Ainge, we all know, I hope, that most if not all of the call in talk shows are no more than radio soap operas. We have the "host" who tries to out "edge" the competition by stretching the facts just a little. The participants take those stretched facts and add to them. By the end of the show there has to be something exciting to hold over for the next day. Why we buy into this kind of thing is mind boggling. At least the ladies that watch the TV soap operas have a good idea they are fiction. Us men and the radio sports talk shows...our imagination and our emotions seem to overwhelm our intellect.
Your right golden would be a home run imo. He has hc exp and all he needs is a big time program and I think he would do great things. Also I could see him sticking around for a long time. Golden would be great in some ways equal or even better than gruden cause gruden wouldn't stick around long I don't think.
