Coach watch: Gillispie fired at Kentucky
If the open head coaching position at UVA was ever the most prestigious vacancy in college basketball this March, it is no longer. UVA will now be fighting with the University of Kentucky over the top candidates, as ESPN reports that the Wildcats have fired head coach Billy Gillispie after just two seasons. Kentucky's program is one of the most legendary in the country, having won seven NCAA championships in its history, a total that trails only UCLA for the most all time.
