Each school requires a minimum level of recent success from a potential coach, which differs depending on the level of the school. The better the school, the more success required.
A coach's success is measured by looking at his team's results over the past 10 seasons. If a coach hasn't coached a full 10 seasons, then it looks at all seasons coached. The more recent the season, the more weight it's given - so the most recent season carries the most weight in the overall success of a coach.
The success of a individual season is based on the following items:
- RPI rank
- Top 25 rank
- Whether you won the conference title
- Whether you won conference coach of the year
- Whether you made the National Tournament
- How far you advanced in the National Tournament
- Whether you made the Postseason Invitational Tournament
- How far you advanced in the Postseason Invitational Tournament
