Minnesota sets out to replace Tubby Smith

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Throughout his years as an administrator, Norwood Teague has developed a strong network of connections in the college basketball community. Now it's time for the Minnesota athletic director to put that to good use.

Teague has started the process of making his first big hire since he came to Minnesota last year. He made a bold decision to fire men's basketball coach Tubby Smith, and now he is looking for a dynamic replacement to take the Golden Gophers into the upper echelon of the Big Ten.

Teague hasn't put a timetable on the decision, but the clock is ticking. Virginia Commonwealth's Shaka Smart, Marquette's Buzz Williams and former Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders are among the names that have been floated as possible replacements.
