    Texas A&M MBB Coach search update

    A&M was turned down by target #1 - Josh Pastner of Memphis

    Target #2 - Buzz Williams of Marquette had a buyout clause that was too expensive.

    It sounds like they are looking at Billy Kennedy of Murray State University. He is from Louisiana and was an assistant at A&M during the 90-91 season.

    I think it's just a myth, like the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, financial responsibility, and common sense.

    This is interesting re:Turgeon at Maryland.

    Sounds like recruits are running like the wind, at least right now.

    Re: Texas A&M MBB Coach search update

    Today's update:

    Looks like A&M is going hard after (and offered to) former NBA coach and ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy.

    Nutshell so far on Van Gundy: Byrne wants him. The two discussed the gig Thurs. JVG mulling offer but not sure that college is for him

    Re: Texas A&M MBB Coach search update

    Van Gundy a no-go for Aggies...as many speculated, sticking with the NBA. I do love that Byrne shot for the starts on this one, however.
    My expectation is that the next run will be at Ben Jacobson of Northern Iowa.
