Texas Tech Hires Ex-UTEP Coach Billy Gillispie | Lubbock Avalanche-Journal


Billy Clyde Gillispie is coming back to West Texas. Here's hoping Bob Stull and new Tech Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt can renew the UTEP- Texas Tech series in hoops. I think BCG is an absolute homerun hire for Tech and it's nice to see him get a second chance in coaching. To get a sense of what Tech fans think of the hire, check out DoubleT Nation here.

Former UTEP Basketball Coach Billy Gillispie "Campaigning" For Iowa State Job

ESPN's Andy Katz: Miners "Serious" About Tim Floyd


Excerpt: "UTEP is serious about Tim Floyd. The Miners can get over the USC issues as the school and Floyd wait for the committee on infractions to issue penalties. Houston is close to getting Billy Gillispie, the former Kentucky, Texas A&M and UTEP coach. But both of these C-USA jobs could still hit a snag due to the nature of both candidates."

ESPN's Andy Katz: UTEP Officials Expect Caracter to Declare for NBA Draft


The article actually focuses on UCF, Houston's, and UTEP's possible pursuit of Billy Gillispie and Tim Floyd, but along the way, Katz drops in this nugget: "The UTEP job might be more of a rebuilding situation if Derrick Caracter leaves, as expected, for the NBA draft. Caracter wasn't on the team charter back from San Jose last week after losing to Butler. UTEP officials are expecting him to declare for the draft and possibly not return to school to finish the semester."
