It's been rumored for weeks now and according to SportsbyBrooks, the hiring is imminent.â†µ
Texas Tech officials met with Gillispie earlier today to discuss the vacant head coaching position.â†µ
The meeting, which took place in south Florida because Hocutt’s last official day as Univ. of Miami Athletic Director isn’t until Friday, was to allow for a formal interview of Gillispie for the vacant Texas Tech basketball coaching job.â†µ
Gillispie is now en route back to Texas via private jet with Tech representatives. I’ve been told a job offer from Tech is imminent and that the coach and school will spend the next few days negotiating a contract.â†µ
This would seem to be a great hire for Texas Tech. Despite his recent struggles at Kentucky, Gillispie had success at Texas A&M, leading them to the Sweet 16, and should have no problem re-acclimating himself to Big 12 basketball.
