Former Arizona State Men's Basketball coach Herb Sendek was hired today by Santa Clara. He replaces Kerry Keating, who was fired after 9 years as the schools coach.
Santa Clara is a good spot for Sendek. It's a great job yet the pressure to win is now where near what it was at ASU. Sendek wasn't dominant at ASU but he won more than he lost and made it to 2 NCAA tournament appearances in 9 seasons.
The hire is also impressive because Sendek is the first ASU coach to get another head job after being fired since 1931.
