Tubby Smith says he's happy at Minnesota and that he has no reason to look anywhere else, according to the Daily Press and the Virginian-Pilot. Smith is in Greensboro with his Golden Gophers preparing for first round NCAA tournament action.
Smith's name had surfaced in several national and regional published reports as a possible replacement candidate for Dave Leitao, who resigned on Monday. On Wednesday, Smith described his job as great and said that he was very happy at Minnesota.
Other coaches on the list have been reported as Jeff Capel of Oklahoma and Anthony Grant of VCU. Craig Littlepage and his staff are in the midst of a nationwide search for a new head basketball coach.
