Stuart Campbell, the attorney for former UTEP, Texas A&M and Kentucky basketball coach Billy Gillispie offered no comment when asked if Gillispie was interested in the Wyoming job. Gillispie has been out of coaching since he was fired from Kentucky in 2009 and has a 140-85 career record.
A source who knows Gillispie told WyoSports Thursday the UW job “would be a place he would probably consider.” The source later added: “I think he’ll be interested.”
Phone messages for Gillispie were not returned Thursday.
