Coaching at the service academies is often a springboard to bigger and better jobs. I know of at least six five former head coaches from Army, Navy and Air Force who are now leading bigger programs in Division I, and it looks like two of the former Army head coaches and one former Air Force head coach are in the Big Dance this year:
*Dino Gaudio, Wake Forest (Army 1994-1997)
* Mike Krzyzewski, Duke (Army 1975-1980, played at West Point from 1967-1969)
*Chris Mooney, Richmond (Air Force 2004-2005, assistant at Air Force for four seasons before that)
Am I missing anybody here?
