Texas A&M coach Billy Gilispie is a hot coaching candidate. And for good reason. He has led the resurgence of Aggie basketball. When he took over the team they had gone winless in the annually overrated Big Twelve the year before. This year (three years into his tenure) he led the Aggies to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAAs.
Sounds good so far.
Gillispie had reportedly interviewed with Arkansas and came very close to taking that job (although he now denies that he ever spoke with Razorbacks Athletic Director, who is largely considered a babboon.)
After that, he reupped with the Aggies and negotiated a lucrative extension which would make him the highest paid coach in a conference that includes Rick Barnes, Bill Self, Bobby Knight, and others.
Problem is, that extension has not been signed. In fact, Gillispie is on his way to the Final Four in Atlanta this weekend. Reports out of my Bluegrass State (that's Kentucky, you non-state-nickname-knowing-people) are that Gillispie is waiting to interview for the UK job.
So you've got a guy, who in the course of a little over a week, has entertained an offer from Arkansas, negotiated an extension to stay at A&M, and renegged on that to possibly negotiate with Kentucky.
Sounds like a weasel.
