UMass' Ford turns down Providence, Hobbs next?

Providence College has been trying hard to find a new coach and have not had much luck. George Mason's Jim Larrannaga said "no thanks," and UMass coach Travis Ford just did also. The Providence Journal says Karl Hobbs might be added to their list, and a Providence newscaster speculates Hobbs might get an interview. A poster at a Providence message board says Providence is very interested in Hobbs, and Hobbs is interested in Providence. Then again, it's a message board, so who knows where this information is coming from.

But I have to assume he wouldn't leave if his goal really is UConn, plus ProCo is kind of a wasteland, you never hear about them.

Then again, maybe he'd want to bail after last season, and he might get some Big East experience. But that's all speculation.

And Outside Providence is a funny movie, I recommend it.

Stay tuned for more updates.

My guess is the interest is greater on Hobb's part "wasteland" or not. But we'll see this week.
