The best and worst of the 2016 college basketball coaching carousel--Eye On College Basketball
The coach with the best chance to win immediately at his new job is ... Scott Nagy (Wright State)

MATT NORLANDER: Maybe an off-the-radar pick, but let's acknowledge how good a coach Nagy is. He was considered by some to be a lifer at South Dakota State, but in reality that wasn't the case. Yes, he took the program from D-II power to D-I legitimacy. He averaged 23.3 wins over the past six seasons and made three NCAA tournaments. He's underrated nationally. He was a deserving candidate for this gig, which was surprising in its opening to begin with. Billy Donlon averaged 18.2 wins in his six seasons with the school. No NCAA tourney showings, but the team did win 22 last season. It's only lost two players to transfer since Nagy came on. It was a really strong group on defense last season, and a large portion of the roster will be returning. Of all the coaches in one-bid leagues who took on new jobs, Nagy could have the best chance at reaching the tournament next year. Bryce Drew is now gone at Valpo, and Oakland lost its best player -- Kay Felder, who would've been an All-American candidate next season -- meaning Wright State should be in the mix.
