As we expected, Billy Gillispie was fired today at Kentucky. Here’s a link to the press conference and the video:
Florida’s Billy Donovan would be the "hot" name here, but he just withdrew his name from consideration, opting to remain in Gainesville. I would expect Oklahoma State’s Travis Ford (a UK alum), and Villanova’s Jay Wright to get some consideration here.
Look for Kentucky to move quickly on this and have a coach in place soon.
