Tubby Smith Leaving UK

Recommended Posts


Tubby Smith is leaving Kentucky after 10 seasons to take the head coaching job at Minnesota.

Smith, who had four years remaining on his contract, will be introduced at a 1 p.m. ET news conference Friday in Minneapolis. A Kentucky source said that the school would still honor the $1.5 million incentive bonus that Smith is due on April 3.

Smith informed Kentucky players and athletics director Mitch Barnhart about his decision earlier Thursday and also phoned former Minnesota coach Dan Monson, who was fired in November, to tell him he was accepting the job.

I hope Tubby has a great career at Minnesota. I hate Kentucky but I've always liked and respected Tubby. He's a quality person and a fantastic college coach.

Good luck, Kentucky. It's going to be a long rebuilding process.
