Coach watch: Smith demurrs, Dayton's Gregory out

His name has come up in connection with several big-time coaching vacancies, including the one right here at UVA, but Minnesota head men's basketball coach Tubby Smith is keeping mum on the subject. "I have a great job," Smith told reporters at a press conference yesterday. "We're enjoying Minnesota. We have no reason to be looking at anything else, and I'm very happy where we are." Meanwhile, another potential candidate has effectively taken his name out of the running. CBS reports that Dayton head coach Brian Gregory reached an oral agreement with his university yesterday to extend his contract through the 2017-18 season.
