After being a member of a coaching staff which led VCU to four NCAA tournament appearances, including a trip to the Final Four in 2011, assistant coach Mike Rhoades appears to be ready to take over his own Division I program.
This will not be Rhoades first college coaching job. For a decade, he was the head coach at Randolph-Macon College (Va.), the same Division III program where Wichita State head coach Gregg Marshall got his start. Rhoades compiled a 197-76 record in his 10 years with the Yellow Jackets.
Rhoades will be taking over a Rice program that stumbled to a 7-23 (2-14 Conference USA) record. The Owls finished last in conference, riding an eight-game losing streak to end the 2013-2014 season.
