The odds of Tony Barbee leaving for Georgia State might’ve gone up today.
We learned yesterday that Barbee is one of three candidates in the mix to take over for Ron Hunter at Georgia State. Today we learned one of the other two candidates, Boston Celtics assistant Micah Shrewsberry, declined an invitation to interview for the job. The Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach shared that news on Twitter.
So if it is true that Georgia State was down to three names and one of them has been tossed out, it leaves only Barbee and NC Central head coach LeVelle Moton.
I have no idea if Barbee is even interested in leaving to coach Georgia State, but it is something to watch in the days ahead. It’s no secret he is interested in one day becoming a head coach again.
