Tubby Smith on Short List to be Named as Memphis’ New Head Coach

It appears that Texas Tech head coach Tubby Smith is interviewing in Memphs and is the front-runner to be named Memphis’ new head basketball coach.

It’s being reported by three different reporters, so it’s time to get serious.

Parrish is located in Memphis and the other two reporters are reputable as well.

I don’t know what to say here other than I hope that Kirby Hocutt can sway Smith to stay, perhaps signing him to a long-term extension, but that FedEx money may be something that Hocutt can’t match.  I don’t even want to think about possible replacements, but I’d look long and hard at assistant coach Pooh Williamson as a possible replacement.
