Mediocre coaches

never retire, they just go coach at Towson.

After denying that they would. (A past offense, but one whose statue of limitations has yet to expire). From the May 1st edition of the Great Falls Tribune.

Contrary to an Internet report, University of Montana men's basketball coach Pat Kennedy says he's not looking for another job. Andy Katz of ESPN.com reported Thursday that Kennedy "was getting restless again" and was a candidate for the vacant Towson University job. According to Katz, Kennedy also had tried and failed to land the University of San Francisco job.

Kennedy chuckled when reached on his cellphone Friday afternoon. "No, there's no truth to any of Andy's rumors," said Kennedy, who has been at Montana the last two seasons. "I've gotten phone calls from four or five schools since the year ended, but there's nothing going on."

Oh, but there was negotiations in progress. As the residents of Montana would learn little more than a week later. From the May 10th edition of the Baltimore Sun.

A coach looking for a change of scenery and a men's college basketball program in search of a much-needed boost have apparently found each other, with Pat Kennedy coming to Towson today from the University of Montana...Kennedy will be introduced at a campus news conference this morning, sources close to Kennedy and the search process said yesterday.

This will be Kennedy's fifth head coaching job, and next season will mark his 25th year as a Division I head coach. His overall record of 416-311 includes eight NCAA tournament appearances.

Kennedy once took Florida State to the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, but he has seen his success dwindle with eight losing seasons at three schools in the past 11 years.
