Billy Gillispie is on the run in Lubbock, avoiding his inevitable termination from Texas Tech by any means possible. Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt is patiently waiting for Gillispie to return to the basketball offices once he uses up all of his accrued sick days so the two can discuss his future as head coach of the Red Raiders. On today’s podcast, we discussed Billy G’s whereabouts and what he could possibly be doing as his days in Lubbock wind down.
He’s still cashing checks as he hides from Hocutt, but we wondered if Gillispie is also using the benefits from his contract while he still has them.
Maybe he is getting four years worth of contact lenses on Texas Tech’s dime. Contacts are expensive, ya know.
Dental exams can also be expensive; he might as well get a free check-up while insurance covers it.
Or maybe he’s gone crazy and he is actually hiding from Hocutt around campus.
Billy seems like the type of guy who would even crawl around the Texas Tech athletic offices to listen in on meetings between Hocutt and the team. Possibly even in disguise.
Or maybe he’s just at a local bar, listening to today’s podcast…
