Matt Painter Turns Down Missouri, is Staying at Purdue

Matt Painter: He turned down Missouri moments ago and will stay at Purdue according to Andy Katz and the Indy Star. The Post-Dispatch breathlessly reported earlier today that Painter was supposed to take the Missouri job after meeting with the Tigers yesterday. Guess not. The 48-hour joyride is over! And here’s where we stand on the coaching front: Missouri, Oklahoma and NC State still don’t have head coaches. Don’t think there’s much pressure on Missouri or Oklahoma to produce a home run hire. NC State? That’s another story.

Because you want to see it first!
