Meanwhile reports continue to come out, about current and former players taking sides in the matter and there is a new one today involving one of the centerpieces of the current team, Jordan Tolbert.
A few days ago former players and fellow coaches including former Red Raiders Robert Lewandowski, and Andy Ellis came out in support of Gillispie. But today Tolbert told Espn writer Andy Katz, when asked, that he does not want to play for Gillispie if he is retained as coach.
"I don't," Tolbert said. "Maybe I would for the assistants. I haven't put that much thought into it. There is a big sense of urgency. I don't want to play for him if he comes back."
He goes on to say,
"We still can be good, but we do need a coach."
