Coaching Decision Coming Soon

The rumors surrounding key coaching jobs around the country are spinning at a pretty frenetic pace right now.

John Calipari looks like he's headed to Kentucky.

That makes Mike Anderson a prime candidate at Memphis.

Anderson may or may not be talking to Georgia, too, but Missouri has not confirmed contact at this point, and Damon Evans certainly isn't talking.

A Memphis TV station is reporting that Mike Anderson's agent met with Damon Evans in Atlanta today, but I have been told by people at UGA that was a false report and that Evans was on campus nearly all day today.

A source in Missouri thinks Anderson is staying put, and Jason Whitlock seems to agree.

Dean Legge at Scout reports that officials at Oklahoma, Xavier and Florida State have all taken a "no comment" approach on any contact that Georgia may have had.

Here's what I do know --- something with Georgia will happen soon. Some of my readers in UGA's band have reported that the athletics department has already requested their presence to perform at a press conference within the next week. That's a timetable that I have confirmed through various sources, including some within the athletics department at Georgia.

The other rumors... well, until they can be classified as something more than that, I'm not going to print them. I will say, however, that there is at least one name out there that I'm fairly certain has gotten attention from UGA that isn't Jeff Capel or Mike Anderson.

Stay tuned...

David, just for accuracy sake I think the Memphis tv station said Jimmy Sexton (Mike Anderson's agent) met w/ Damon in Atlanta today.

ALso, Chip Towers is saying that its a false rumor-that Damon was in Athens all day.

Leonard Hamilton has said the state of Georgia is to basketball as the state of Florida is to football in recruiting terms.

maybe it's a wording thing....they didn't meet in Atlanta, but they could have met in Athens ;)

I don't like our chances with Anderson or Capel...I feel a wild card coming out of the blue...

Please don't tell me we're getting stuck with Hamilton or Tubby. Damon better not fuck this up.

I am reading the tea leaves and they are saying Tubby, Tubby....

It could have been that Anderson met Jimmie Sexton met with the search firm if Evans wasn't there.
