…and there it is. According to Mark Giannotto, Tubby Smith’s two-year tenure at Memphis is over:

In April 2016, Tubby took over for Josh Pastner, who left Memphis for Georgia Tech. Over two seasons, he compiled a 40-26 record, leading Memphis to a fifth place finish in the American Athletic Conference. For the past few months, rumors have swirled that Memphis officials wanted to replace Tubby with Penny Hardaway, who has made a name for himself as a coach at the high school/AAU level.
Whether or not Penny ends up at Memphis remains to be seen, but for now, Tubby is out. Where do you predict he’ll end up next?
