Apparently Tubby Smith could be available since Memphis may replace him with Penny Hardaway. Smith’s buyout is over $9 million. Maybe we could hire Tubby to be a consultant. $9 million will go a long way in BHM, especially properly invested by graduates of our business school, especially the basketball business graduates.

That would be a pretty dirty thing to do to the Tubster. But IIRC Penny's the HS coach of one of the top juniors in the country.

Strictly my personal opinion, speculation, and suspicion, but that’s what our AD had in mind when HCJT was fired and Tubby was almost out the door in Minnesota. Tubby messed up Minnesota’s planned firing by making a run in the NIT, losing in the championship game to Stanford in 2012. Tubby got a 3-year extension and we got HCBS. Tubby got fired in 2013 after losing to Florida in the Round of 32.

Yeah, I tend to think that at one time there was some momentum to bring Tubby to SU.
BOE.
