World’s Worst Kept Secret: Gillispie Out at UKPosted by rtmsf on March 27th, 2009
The world’s absolutely worst-kept secret was confirmed today in Lexington, as Billy Gillispie was ousted as the head coach at Kentucky after two seasons. A press conference is scheduled for 4:30pm EDT.
As we’ve discussed on this site several times, Gillispie’s lack of public relations skills combined with his 27 losses in two years doomed him among the UK administration and heavy-hitters. You were in the distinct minority if you still thought Billy G. had a chance to survive in Lexington after this season.
The question now becomes, who will UK replace Gillispie with? We’re on record stating that a deal is already in the books with Florida’s Billy Donovan. We outlined our logic and reasoning in a post last night. Now it’s just wait and see time. If anything interesting comes out of the press conference, we’ll be back.
