University Of Maryland's basketball coach Gary Williams retired unexpectedly yesterday afternoon, leaving one of the most attractive jobs in all of College Basketball vacant extremely late in the hiring process. Word is, that they have set their sights on a number of extremely high profile coaching candidates, including Villanova's Jay Wright. According to the bracket blog at the Washington Post, Wright would be pretty high on their wish-list.
