College basketball coaching changes tracker 2024: Dusty May picks Michigan, forcing Louisville to pivot – CBS Sports

More news from Sunday: Drake’s Darian DeVries agreed to be the next coach at West Virginia. One more high-major should pop.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament First Round-Northwestern vs Florida Atlantic

For the past few weeks, the high-major coaching carousel was waiting on where Dusty May would land. On Saturday night, the decision came in — to the surprise of some in college basketball. May is off to Michigan, choosing the Wolverines over Louisville and Vanderbilt, and he accepted a five-year deal that will pay him $3.75 million on average over the life of the contract. 

And as expected, the domino effect of May’s pick will spark other vacancies to fill.

With Michigan off the board, it joins DePaul, Ohio State and West Virginia as the high-major schools that have filled their coaching vacancies. 

That’s because West Virginia got its man. As we informed you in the tracker below, Drake coach Darian DeVries was WVU’s top target. (DeVries was also waiting on Michigan before making a move; he was a candidate for that opening as well.) After more than a week of diligence and interviews, Mountaineers AD Wren Baker hired his top man and DeVries to Morgantown on a five-year deal.

As of Sunday evening, the high-major jobs that remain on the clock: Louisville, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Vanderbilt and Washington. I have updated information on those openings in the capsules below. 

As all this happens, the transfer portal continues to add names and climb above 600 players. It brings urgency to all the jobs that are still open. I expect at least two of those jobs to fill by Monday. And more will join, depending on the results of Sunday’s NCAA Tournament games. One example: Utah State coach Danny Sprinkle is a target at Oklahoma State, Vanderbilt and Washington.

As the NCAA Tournament wraps up, we’re closing in on nearly 50 job flips.  Here is the latest. We’re going to get noisier in the next 24 hours, 100% guaranteed.
