I asked #Hokies Buzz Williams about reports Texas A&M could be interested in him: "I've never commented on jobs. I don't think that's appropriate by our kids. ... I can't control what people say. I've got to make sure I'm doing my best with these guys."

Excited to announce we have agreed to a contract extension with @CoachProhm through 2025.  Awesome to have a basketball coach that fits our department's culture of excellence while also having integrity, kindness and humility.

Troy set to hire Scott Cross as basketball coach




--- Quote ---Cross replaces Phil Cunningham, who was fired earlier this month after six seasons. The Trojans won the 2017 Sun Belt tournament championship and advanced to the NCAA tournament
--- End quote ---

Phil Cunningham was a long-time assistant to Rick Stansbury at State. His father coached Stansbury in college.

Oats did a great job at Buffalo. Good hire by Alabama.

However, signing a contract and then leaving two weeks later isn't a great look. Could you imagine if a player asked for a transfer two weeks after signing?

Ben Jones@BW_Jones

Nate Oats signed a contract extension at Buffalo less than 2 weeks ago.

What he said: “I can concentrate on coaching games. I don’t have to worry about the rest of things. I tell (my agent), ‘Just tell everybody, no thanks, unless it’s something unreal.'"

Mike Anderson is finalizing a deal to become the next head coach at St. John's. STORY @SInow: https://bit.ly/2vbFulZ  #SJUBB




--- Quote ---Red Storm have struggled to find a replacement for Chris Mullin, who stepped down as St. John's coach on April 9 after four seasons and two NCAA tournament appearances.

Former Louisville coach Rick Pitino reportedly reached out to St. John's about the vacancy, but the school did not appear interested.
