I honestly don't think it was. It was if they had someone in the hopper, but to have to reach like they did with Pitino tells me they didn't. They should have ridden Tubby out until they had someone in their sights that had a good chance at coming here. Also, firing a coach after winning a tourney game doesn't look good from the outside.The Gophers fired Tubby Smith after winning more in two less seasons than Pitino, and right after winning a game in the NCAA tournament. And I still agree that was the right move.
