Buzz Williams, Texas A&M Basketball
Texas A&M basketball has never been quite as good as the football team. That said, the athletic department has done a strong job of hiring coaches in this millennium who can bring the team to the NCAA Tournament and give them a chance, however small, of winning a national title.
Billy Gillispie was the first. He took this program to heights that it had not seen since the late 70s. Unfortunatley, he’d leave for the Kentucky basketball head coaching position and send his players a text message to tell them the news.
