But it's NOT that guy. Sorry for the tease! According to Gary Parrish, Pastner has agreed to an extension with Memphis:
Memphis will announce later today that it has reached a new contract extension with Josh Pastner, a source told CBSSports.com
It's also apparently not Dave Rose from BYU, who shot us down. However, there was also an interesting nugget in this tweet from Jay Drew:
Tipster in Oklahoma: BYU basketball coach Dave Rose has told Oklahoma he isn't interested; Sooners are interviewing someone else today.
Who exactly we are interviewing is uncertain at this point. However, it seems if we have a target we can cross off anyone still in the tournament, Buzz Williams, Josh Pastner, and Dave Rose. I have yet to hear any definitive no's about Lon Kruger though, and as I posted last night, there's at least one OU administrator pushing for him.
The math in my head says one thing, but Joe Castiglione is doing a good job keeping this under wraps.
