Shame that Will Wade makes list at # 3.

No surprise Matt on list but as others have said, unlikely he'll ever be a head coach at high level if he's just a salesman and not an X and O / development mind.

Where's TJ Cleveland? Under 40 & Associate Head Coach...

Nice to see Jared Grasso on list. Long Island guy (St. Anthony
‘s ) working his way up coaching ranks

There is absolutely no way if I was a college AD that I would let Matt A be my head man. At this point I wouldn't even touch him as an asst. Just don't see any qualities that would make him appealing.

He's vastly overrated as a recruiter. He's average to me. Not terrible, he landed some very good players here. But lets not act like everything he touched turned into gold. And if all he's got going for him is his "recruiting" then that's not nearly enough to run a program.

Matt almost single-handedly recruited the most talented starting 5 in the Big East while half the staff spent the entire off season in California. Coaching them on the court to be a contender is not his job, or his forte. Considering what he had to deal with, I'd say he's a least above average. I'll always be grateful he decided to take a shot at his Alma Mater.

Can't help but wonder how much it cost their boosters to get him ranked that high...

Does Matt have HC experience at any level above CYO?
