Gopher Search Continues 27 Mar 13

There’s nothing new out of the University of Minnesota basketball camp. Associate athletic director Mike Ellis is overseeing the program while athletic director Norwood Teague searches for a new coach. Teague relieved former coach Tubby Smith of his duties on Monday. Teague and Ellis are not using a search firm to find the new coach. Teague says they believe they have enough contacts in the college basketball world that they can hire a new coach without taking on the cost of hiring such a firm. Teague has not given a timetable on when he’d like to have a new coach in place.
