About Tim Floyd

UTEP coach Tim Floyd discussed his conversation with Pat Haden after last night’s game against Memphis.

“The way we left the school was not comfortable for me and my family and our former players and our coaches.  I said I was not looking for a job, but I felt a responsibility, when they called, to talk to them about that job. Again, I have not been offered a job.”

My take: Booster Wayne Hughes, the owner of Public Storage, urged Haden and Max Nikias to interview Floyd for the job. That requirement was met and this allowed Floyd to let everyone know he was not found guilty of wrongdoing by the NCAA. But I do not think he is a serious candidate for the job.

    Thank you Scott, that was some good reporting…
    The “serious” part of a candidate’s chances expands as the other candidates begin dropping out or say no! Let’s just say Tim will be on the list.

      I believe strongly the next head basketball coach, if it isn’t Cantu, will be a coach who has the ability take this program to the next level and become a real player. The hard part was always going to be building a home basketball arena. MG accomplished that miracle and now Haden has the ammunition: location, money & a home arena. I wouldn’t be shocked if Floyd was rehired.

        TYPICAL RAH RAH. Home Basketball Arena has been around for years. Same/WORSE Attendance….same piss poor teams…TRADITION ON!

        I would be surprised if Floyd returned…Haden is smarter than that.

          Typical of a bRuin fan whose team cannot even defeat Washington State, the last place team in the conference.
          What do you think he knows – we all know the answer –
          NADA Mex.
