Gillispie silent on Texas Tech Basketball job


AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Former Kentucky basketball coach Billy Gillispie isn't talking about his name being linked to the job at Texas Tech. Gillispie was at the Texas Boys State Tournament on Friday, but declined to answer questions from The Associated Press whether he was interested in the Texas Tech job or had interviewed with school officials.

Texas Tech announced before the Big 12 tournament that coach Pat Knight would not return next season. Knight has publicly endorsed Gillispie for the job. Gillispie, who also coached at Texas El-Paso and Texas A&M, was fired at Kentucky in 2009 after two tumultuous seasons.
