Sporting News Basketball Insider Mike DeCourcy joined the Cook and Poni Show on Thursday to discuss the firing of Kevin Stallings as Pitt's men's Basketball Coach.

 

DeCourcy says he was never a fan of the hire in the first place. He says the results were not good enough for a guy that had been in the business for as long as he has been.

 

"There was literally no good reason to hire him, " DeCourcy said. "And you saw the results of what transpired over the past 2 years."

 

So now what for Pitt?

 

DeCourcy says there are coaches out there that can come here and be successful but the pressure is on to find that guy.

 

"You have to get this one right," DeCourcy said. "You can't get it wrong and certainly not as wrong as the last one."
