Fake news. Jkat's photo has changed from Bennett to Archie - must be a done deal.

Jkat, I have all the respect for you, but I'm just passing along what I've heard.

I would assume JW has the lawyers and accountants getting the paperwork in order now, and he will meet with Groce on Sunday. But that's just me speculating.

I heard this exact thing about an hour ago with the exception of the "end of the weekend" part. This was secondhand information, so I have no idea if it's accurate, just saying I heard the same.

It's amazing how many people tweet at them accusing them of holding something back.

Even more amazing that talktalktalk and illiniman12 have heard who the new coach is but the guys that get paid to do this for a living haven't heard.

Monty Williams is a name that hit hot and heavy about a month ago. Then his name seemed to disappear as quick as it came. I've heard that he is no longer interested. Maybe that is all a smokescreen.
