If he seriously wants to coach D1 he will have to start as an assistant at a mid level team and go that route or take a a low level D1 team and turn them around.

There is no way that you can tell me that some DI school hasn't offered him a spot someplace. It might not be his "dream" coaching job but that is a different issue.

Mercer University is looking for a new mens head coach.
Win the Atlatic Sun and go from there. If he starts beating teams in the SEC and the ACC he will get noticed real fast.

Oklahoma State is looking for an assistant mens coach.

Who do you think a major program is going to take first a #1 DII coach or guys like Stokke, Asse, Pedroso, Glenn, Kronauge, Woodruff, etc. who have sat back for years waiting for their chance to coach at a major program? These guys either played on a top 5 program, were assistant coaches at a top 5 program, or were on the pro tour.
I think this is pretty far off. I think he's well earned a nod at a top tier conference. I just question why he'd want it.

Normally, when you look at the coaches with longevity, they don't want to go anywhere new. If they are happy where they are and doing what they want to do, why move, put kids in new schools, etc.

I'd bet its his personal decision to stay at AA and keep dominating.
