What’s goin on?

Here’s UConn athletic director Warde Manuel’s response to a report(s) linking him to the Virginia Tech job in which he was mentioned as being a finalist…

“I am not a candidate, have not been interviewed nor have I been contacted by Virginia Tech about its Director of Athletics position despite some recent media reports,” Manuel said in a statement Wednesday. “I am very happy as the Director of Athletics at UConn and look forward to continuing to work with President Herbst, my coaches, staff, student-athletes, donors and fans to enjoy a high level of continued success in athletics at UConn.  I wish Virginia Tech all the best in their search to replace, one of the legends in our business, Jim Weaver.”
