Tubby has had a great career. His record is 594-300 and he’s been a winner everywhere except Texas Tech. He won a NC @ Kentucky. He could have been our HC instead of Alvin Brooks in 1993. Who knows where we would have been today if he had been hired by UH back in the 90s.
My impression is that Tubby Smith’s career is winding down, but the the money for a HC is better than it’s ever been so he might be wanting to cash in for as long as he can. Also, I’m confident that he wants to reach the 600 win threshold before he retires, something Guy Lewis, who finished 592-279 probably should have done.
