Editor's Note: Insider has teamed with Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook, long known as the Bible of college basketball, to provide a comprehensive look at all 327 Division I teams.

After stints in the big time, namely DePaul and Florida State, Pat Kennedy finds himself these days in of all places, Missoula, Mont. Not that it's a bad thing for a coach who has amassed 406 wins in 23 years of coaching.

Kennedy was let go at DePaul despite the fact that the core of his phenomenal recruiting classes kept turning professional after one or two years. Kennedy won't have such players in Missoula, but he has already brought in some fine Big Sky talent and has his squad posed for a run at the conference title just two years into his tenure at the school.
