An editor at cbssports.com came up with a terrific idea and posted it on their site this week. He ranks all 68 college coaches in the men's tournament by their playing careers.
Among the interesting tidbits Tony Moss offers: 22 off the 68 actually spent time on an NBA roster.
Here's Moss' take: "Ollie played point guard on three NCAA Tournament teams under Jim Calhoun from 1992-95, but was not drafted and took the slow road to glory in the NBA. Once there, Ollie refused to go away, playing in 662 games for 11 different franchises and remaining in the league until the age of 37."
