I spent some time looking around and talking to folks this morning and afternoon. Here are some tidbits…..
— Lots of speculation out there that “a deal is done” and will be announced before Tuesday. I cant say that I am certain it isnt done but I spoke with someone today who said that such talk was “way too early to say.” I do however believe the goal is to have someone by the end of the week.
— I also believe after my conversations today that UK will be interested in Tom Izzo and are looking into him as a choice. Those conversations will not take place until after the game today, but win or lose, I do think he will get a call.
— Lot of positive buzz out there for Sean Miller. He will get a conversation early this week with the brass.
— I get lots of emails asking, so I will repeat again…..it aint gonna be Rick Pitino.
Look for more in a bit, including my ranking preference of who I would pick if given the choice…..
