CBS Sports Dennis Dodd: Source; NCAA Will Attach a Show-Cause Penalty To Tim Floyd

CBS Sports.com's Dennis Dodd claims that the NCAA Committee on Infractions will assess a "Show Cause" penalty to Tim Floyd that would be enforced during his tenure in El Paso. Dodd notes that he spoke with Bob Stull who doesn't believe such a penalty will be assessed and stated that UTEP did their "due diligence" before hiring Floyd. ESPN's Andy Katz doesn't believe a show-cause will be levied, but this is the first time I've seen a national journalist claim to have a source that believes Floyd will be punished. A Dodd Quote: "I person familiar with the NCAA process told me that such a penalty would follow Floyd to UTEP. That's potentially a messy situation."

Bill Knight: Dickey the Front-Runner but Talks Still "Ongoing" With Tim Floyd

The El Paso Times' Biill Knight has a nice round-up of where the UTEP mens basketball coaching search stands as of this morning. With all the movement in the last 24 hours, I wouldn't be surprised if we have an official announcement very soon. Excerpt: "Most thought Floyd to be the top choice, but recently his name has drifted out of the picture. He interviewed with UTEP athletic director Bob Stull last weekend in New Orleans. Floyd also interviewed with the University of Houston last weekend. Sources close to the search say "it's not dead yet" and that it is safe to assume talks are still ongoing with Floyd."

Foot in Mouth? KROD's Steve Kaplowitz Retracts Report that Randall Dickey Has Been Named UTEP's Head Basketball Coach

I guess I'll have to wait a couple of hours before every posting anything that Steve Kaplowitz reports. After earlier reporting that UTEP's hiring of Randall Dickey was a done deal and that an "announcement could come as soon as today," Kaplowitz has retracted his story and apologized for jumping the gun. Miner athletic director Bob Stull contacted Kaplowitz and convinced him that he has not made a decision yet.

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."

Scratch Sam Houston State's Bob Marlin off the list of potential coaches for the vacant head coaching job at UTEP. Also, it looks like Mach Rhoades' Houston Cougars are zeroing in on Billy Gillispie or Tim Floyd (Houston Chronicle).
