Not sure what to make of this becuase it is a Blog and you can never trust 100% what people say (No offense meant towards BON).
I can confirm absolutely that yes, a coach did get a tour of the John Paul Jones Arena late Tuesday night. And by late-night, I mean, clandestine, no-witnesses LATE night. I’ve also been told by more than one airtight source that the coach who toured JPJ is the one who has a UVa offer in hand—apparently it’s well known within the UVa basketball "family" that there is an offer already on the table.
My guess right now: I think whoever it was that toured JPJ on Tuesday (and I can absolutely, 100-percent guarantee it was a coaching candidate) will be the next UVa head men’s basketball coach by the beginning of next week.
The name I was given last night, by the way, that I alluded to on this site, was Rick Barnes. That name has been floated now by two of my best-placed UVa sources, though neither actually saw him, nor can they confirm that for sure.
I would not be able to understand why Barnes would turn down Kentucky last season and then accept a coaching job at UVA. UVA does offer some things Texas does not.
I would like think that the Pros of Texas out way the cons.
