Minnesota Introduces Tubby Smith at Afternoon Press Conference


Former University of Kentucky basketball coach Tubby Smith was introduced as the new head coach of the University of Minnesota head coach at a news conference today.

Tubby Smith boarded a plane for Minnesota Thursday after 10 seasons in Lexington as the Wildcat's head coach. The Wildcats went 22 and 12 under Smith this season and made the NCAA tournament, but lost to top-seeded Kansas in the second round.

That turned up the heat on Smith, who led Kentucky to the NCAA Championship in 1998. The Wildcats haven't been back to the Final Four since.
