Four years from now, Mike Brey will have been at ND for 17 years and will be approaching 60 years old, so he might be looking to retire. If we're holding our own in the ACC, we'll certainly be an attractive job, perhaps the most attractive in the state relatively speaking.
In the meantime, Stevens will have sampled NBA life. If he doesn't find it to his liking, he'll be looking to go back to the college ranks, perhaps back to his home state. At 40 years old, he'll still have a good 20 years of coaching ahead of him.
