Kentucky Statement on Future of Billy Gillespie

We are continuing to hear many different rumors regarding Coach Billy Gillespie and his future at Kentucky. At this point it is still difficult to sort everything out. A television station out of Louisville reported last night the Billy Gillespie was fired and immediately following that telecast the University of Kentucky released the following statement:

"UK men’s basketball coach Billy Gillespie has not been fired. There have been no meetings between Gillespie and UK officials today, and there is no scheduled press conference for tomorrow."

We still cannot determine what exactly the future holds for Gillespie, but after all of this speculation and reports I think it would be an even tougher situation for Billy next year if he were to stay. The best move for Gillespie and the University at this point seems to be to cut ties completely. Stay tuned we will keep you up to date as we know any new information.
