Brad Underwood left Oklahoma State after a season for the Illinois job. Oklahoma State is replacing him as head coach with assistant Mike Boynton. Boynton served with Underwood as an assistant at both Oklahoma State and Stephen F. Austin.
College basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb, who has no college coaching experience, reportedly interviewed for the job on Thursday. Though, he said today he was no longer a candidate. Gottlieb’s move to FS1 and Fox Sports Radio had been announced on Wednesday.
Earlier today, Gottlieb told Dan Patrick that he heard Steve Alford was heading to Indiana.
