Degrees of Joe Alleva

One of the more overlooked aspects of men’s basketball associate head coach Johnny Dawkins’ taking the head coaching position at Stanford is how the whole process began: with former Director of Athletics Joe Alleva, of course.

  • Alleva became LSU’s new athletic director April 4.
  • Alleva hired former Stanford head coach Trent Johnson April 9.
  • Stanford hired Dawkins Saturday.

One final twist: 2008 recruit Miles Plumlee, brother of Duke 2009 commit Mason Plumlee, received a release from his Letter of Intent to Stanford after Johnson left. Now that Dawkins, a potentially familiar face, is at the helm of the program, will Plumlee re-sign his LOI? Will he precede his brother at Duke? Or will he go somewhere else?

What do you think?
