Minneapolis, MN - Tubby Smith is leaving the University of Kentucky for the University of Minnesota. A Kentucky spokesman says Smith met with his players today but that he doesn't have any idea what was discussed.
An official at Minnesota, who wishes to remain anonymous, says
Smith will become the Gophers new coach. The official asked for
anonymity because the hire hasn't been announced yet.
Smith's Wildcats were 22-and-12 this season but lost over the
first weekend of the N-C-A-A tournament. U-K hasn't been to the
Final Four since 1998 and has lost ten or more games in a season
