Insell on the job for Ole Miss

A couple of basketball links of interest here.

Kentucky’s Elite Eight loss to UConn means new Ole Miss women’s basketball coach Matt Insell is on the job. Here is the Lexington Herald-Leader’s account of Insell’s hiring.

Also, it didn’t take former Kentucky coach Tubby Smith long to land on his feet. After being let go at Minnesota, Smith has been hired at Texas Tech.

From the Dallas Morning News, five things to consider about Smith’s hiring at Texas Tech. An interesting note here is that Tech’s only postseason appearance since the 2007 NCAA tournament under Bob Knight was its NIT quarterfinal loss at Ole Miss in 2010.

In terms of the news factor Smith to Lubbock is surpassed by USC’s hire of Andy Enfield, who made Florida Gulf Coast the darlings of this year’s NCAA tournament.
