Earlier this month is seemed a done deal that Rod Strickland would be heading back to his alma mater to be a head coach. Well now according to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports that is no longer the case:
Rod Strickland not going to DePaul as an assistant coach after all, per a source. Oliver Purnell still with an opening on his staff.

No reason has been given yet why Rod will not be joining the Blue Demon staff. I’m sure the Big Blue Nation will be glad to welcome The Point God back as the Director of Basketball Operations.
