While it has never been my philosophy to comment on job openings at other schools, the speculation today about me accepting another head coaching job is erroneous. It is true that North Carolina State offered me the job of head coach but I have joined Rick Barnes, John Calipari, John Brady, Steve Lavin, John Beilein, Bo Ryan, Mike Brey and Chester Cheetah in rebuking NC State's advances.
I am flattered by the interest and recognition that the basketball program...errr, I have received. I wish North Carolina State best wishes in finding a new coach before the next basketball season begins. If they don't, I hear Gale Catlett is available.
