Maybe surprising to some, definitely to me, that Billy giddyup Gillispie has been so focused and busy on the recruiting front that he's been operating without a contract. That's pretty surprising since this job has been touted as the best in college basketball and he and Mitch Barnhart haven't come to terms yet? I know some of it has to deal with Gillispie filling his staff if I read correctly and finalizing things. Says Barnhart,
“He has done a remarkable job in 2½ months. He's worked really, really hard to recruit, to bring some players in here that give us a different look. Billy has certainly given us the energy that we needed and that that fans desired.”
Yeah, I get the feeling too that Gillispie has already earned far more than what probably was agreed upon.
