I don't expect that Tony and Charles Barkley will be having drinks anytime soon.

I don't get this. Roccaforte is Assoc Head Coach at VA Tech. Why would he lateral for arguably a worse conference?

Similar with Barbee. Assuming Roccaforte would be the top assistant, it'd be a lateral for Tony as well.

Brought this legacy thread back to life, and changed the title.

Tony is a head coach again. Announced at Central Michigan today:

Tony replaces Keno Davis, who was dropped earlier this month after 9 seasons at CMU:

I wonder how that 1 year stint was for Barbee at Wyoming in between his gigs at UMass.

I think you answered it when you said 1 year.

A new coach brought Tony onto his staff that season, I'm guessing Tony hated it out there, and came back east.
