Tony Barbee is not going to Georgia State

Earlier this week, it was reported that Kentucky assistant Tony Barbee was a candidate for the Georgia State job; that is no longer the case. This morning, Georgia State hired Tennessee assistant Rob Lanier, meaning Barbee isn’t going anywhere. Right now, at least.

Oddly, Lanier wasn’t on the list of candidates ESPN reported earlier this week, but hey, the coaching carousel is wild. Also, Tennessee’s dream team continues to fall apart.

    I’m pretty hard on Coach Barbee; I never hear about him being the lead recruiter on an actual commit, I never hear the players commending him like KP and even Joel Justus. But, isn’t it saying something when he can’t even get the job at Georgia State? CATS

    Cal has to shake up his staff…complacency is setting in and recruiting take a hit. Bigs are not progressing like they should and point a severe letdown this past season! Quality of line up is at ebb!

      Maybe Mitch just really likes the way he cuts his hair.

    Georgia State don’t want him either?

    He lost the HC job at Auburn, which quite frankly was hard to do at the time. Then he ran down Auburn on social media – not a good look. Felt bad for UK that Cal felt the need to hire him back.

    We could really use a good X and O coach to help Cal with in-game coaching.

      Clearly you know absolutely nothing about John Robic.

    John Robic knows the X’s and O’s. Believe that
