It appears that former Kentucky head coach Billy Gillispie may soon be roaming the sidelines of Division I basketball again.
According to Jon Rothstein, Gillispie is being considered for an opening at Tarleton State, a program that will be joining the WAC on July 1 located in Stephensville, Texas, about 60 miles from his hometown.
As reported in the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram, Gillispie interviewed for the job on Friday, and is hopeful to get a second interview later this week.
Gillispie is mostly known in college coaching circles for his time at Texas A&M, Kentucky, Texas Tech, and UTEP, but Gillispie has found success in the JUCO ranks at Ranger College.
Nothing but the best wishes for Gillispie as he looks for a new path in his coaching career.
