According to Jeff Goodman and his multiple sources, Mississippi State’s Rick Stansbury could be on his way to Clemson to fill its open head coaching position. The Tigers are looking to fill the spot left open by Oliver Purnell, who bolted to Chicago for the DePaul gig last week.
The Battletown, Kentucky native is Mississippi State’s all-time wins leader with a 255-136 record in 12 seasons. He was also a Bulldog assistant under Richard Williams for eight seasons. If Stansbury does decide to make the move to the ACC, he will go down as one of the all-time greatest coaches to lose the SEC Championship with a three point lead with 4.9 seconds to go in a game that ruined my good pair of khakis.
The good man on Fox is reporting that Clemson has also talked with Wright State’s Brad Brownell, Jacksonville’s Cliff Warren, Wofford’s Mike Young, former BC head coach Al Skinner, Clemson associate head coach Ron Bradley and my good buddy Blaine Taylor’s moustache from ODU.
************ UPDATE ************
Goodman just tweeted that sources are saying Stansbury will spurn Clemson and stay in Starkville. Stanbury’s buyout may have been a roadblock in him not going to Clemson.
I guess you can just disregard all of the above and enjoy the video. Go Cats.
