MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -After taking Minnesota to the NCAA tournament in his second year at the school, Tubby Smith says he's planning on coaching the Gophers next season too.
Because he's at a program not among the nation's most prominent, Smith's high profile and successful past make it easy for his name to cycle through the rumor mill when there's a vacancy with another major conference team.
Recently, the resignation of Dave Leitao at Virginia prompted speculation the Cavaliers would pursue Smith, who was raised in Maryland and has family in the area.
But Smith said in an interview Monday he's happy at Minnesota, pleased with the direction of the program and focused on the future.
The Gophers lost to Texas in the first round and finished 22-11.
