    Smith is out.

    KY Message Boards and Lexington TV reporting he's out - going to Minnesota (assuming the Univ)
    And ESPN's Andy Katz reports the same...

    Andy Katz reporting this on ESPN - and that he'll get to keep his $1.5 million retention bonus from UK. Wow.

    Good for Tubby. He was never really appreciated in Kentucky. Had to listen to their fans bitch and moan about him his whole tenure.

    I wonder who Kentucky would go after?

    It's an appealing job in that there is a basketball tradition but it's not appealing in that if you don't win NCAA titles every five years (or more), the crazy UK fans consider you a failure.

    Having said that, if UK can get a guy who is a solid recruiter, that guy should do well. Tubby's strength certainly was not recruiting.

    Yeah, now they can whine about the next guy, who might not match the one title Tubby brought to Lexington.

    So who's on the UK list?
