I guess I'll have to wait a couple of hours before every posting anything that Steve Kaplowitz reports. After earlier reporting that UTEP's hiring of Randall Dickey was a done deal and that an "announcement could come as soon as today," Kaplowitz has retracted his story and apologized for jumping the gun. Miner athletic director Bob Stull contacted Kaplowitz and convinced him that he has not made a decision yet.
So, the Floyd rumors do not appear to be true. It looks like Bob Stull has tabbed one of Tony Barbee's top assistants to take over the UTEP mens basketball program. The University has not confirmed the Kaplowitz report yet.
