Tubby Smith reportedly fired at Minnesota

Less than 24 hours after losing to Florida in the third round of the NCAA Tournament Tubby Smith has reportedly been fired by the University of Minnesota. The University of Minnesota has not confirmed the firing but CBS Sports Report Jeff Goodman reported the news earlier this morning.

In Tubby Smith's six years with the Gophers he took the team to three NCAA Tournaments picking up his first victory Friday night when they defeated UCLA. However, the Gophers best finish in the Big Ten under Smith was 6th and they were never able to get above .500 in the Big Ten.

Because of Gopher Athletic Director Norwood Teague's previous ties to VCU Head Coach Shaka Smart many believe that Smart could be the next Gopher coach. Others think the next coach could be former Gopher player and active alumnist Flip Saunders. Stay tuned to Gopher Illustrated and Rivals.com for continual updates.
