Plus: Dillon Mitchell commits to Texas
The head coaching carousel is officially up and running. Yesterday, Texas Tech Red Raiders head coach Matt Wells was shit-canned not even three full seasons into the job. Now, Baylor Bears head coach Dave Aranda is among the names linked to the open LSU Tigers job.
Aranda was asked about the job earlier this week, per 247Sports. “I love it here and my family loves it here. Baylor has been everything I’ve wanted it to be,” Aranda said.
In other words, a non-answer like that tells us nothing.
