So what does Stanford do now?

Somewhat oddly, sounds as if no one there has a clue.
As Jon Wilner pointed out today, you would have thought that if things were so bad between Trent Johnson and the Stanford administration Johnson was thinking of leaving, that said administration would have at least some idea of what it wanted to do if Johnson, in fact, left.
Instead, sounds as if the folks at Stanford never thought Johnson would really leave and have no plan what to do now.
As a private institution, Stanford isn’t compelled to release salary information. But it’s thought Johnson was making only $600,000 or so, making him one of the lowest-paid coaches in the conference. He’s thought to be making $1.2 million per at LSU, which isn’t huge money anymore and one reason the LSU job wasn’t quite as attractive to some coaches as it might seem from the outside.
Here’s a fun take from Ray Ratto on the chaos in the Bay Area with Stanford having no coach and Cal having a coach who might wish he could be at Stanford, instead.
As for who coaches Stanford now, ESPN’s Andy Katz mentioned Mark Few, Mike Brey and, you guessed it, Tony Bennett as possibilities. He also threw out Davidson’s Bob McKillop and Tulsa’s Doug Wojcik, whose claim to fame is leading his team to the CBI title (so take that, those of you who said that tournament was meaningless).
The San Francisco Chronicle mentions Randy Bennett, Mark Fox, Bill Grier and one wildcard — Bob Knight. That would liven up those Tuesday morning Pac-10 coaches conference calls, that’s for sure.
