First Billy Gillispie told UTEP that he wasn't leaving, agreed to more money but never signed his contract. He jumped at Texas A+M right afterwards.
Gillispie recently agreed to a lucrative contract extension with A&M after being wooed by Arkansas, but he did not sign the deal. According to one report at the time A&M and Gillispie verbally agreed to to the extension, the new deal was going to pay the coach about $2 million annually, making him the highest paid of his Big 12 peers.
The Reason for AGAIN not signing after tellling everyone Aggie "I'm your man":
Kentucky has announced it will hold "a pep rally and a press conference" Friday afternoon to announce the hiring of the program's 21st head coach. And according to a source at Kentucky, Texas A&M coach Billy Gillispie is the man the Wildcats will introduce to Big Blue Nation.
That is why Dana Altman is one of a kind in the coaching business. Nobody turns down Arkansas and $1.7 Million Dollars for Creighton and Omaha expect Dana Altman.
