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.
