The MPSF is not the Pac-12. Surprised by this choice, but AD Muir needed to get his guy in there so this is what the program gets. While it was not reported as such, it's kind of obvious that it was not Knapp's decision to leave. He still had plenty to offer the program, but Muir needs to have his own hires in every head coaching position. Good luck when it comes to women's basketball, because that will be VanDerveer's call and not Muir's. This is the way college sports works these days.
