The job has been offered to ... someone other than Morrill

Updated 10:50 a.m.

Whenever you see this type of announcement, in which a coach publicly says he's no longer a candidate for a job, it generally means one thing: That the job has been offered to someone else, and that person is likely to accept the job.

LOGAN, Utah - Utah State's men's basketball coach Stew Morrill announced Monday morning that he is no longer a candidate for the head coaching position at Washington State University.

Morrill, who signed a contract extension with Utah State through the 2014-15 season prior to the 2008-09 campaign, met with officials from Washington State Sunday afternoon.

"I have not and will not pursue other coaching jobs," Morrill stated. "Washington State contacted me and I think it was understood all along that I have deep roots here and it would be very difficult for us to leave Utah State University, Cache Valley and the state of Utah."

It's mostly a PR face saving move for the guy who wasn't picked. So who's been offered the job? Your guess is as good as mine (and we all have guesses), but one thing is certain -- I'd be shocked if we don't hear who our next coach is before the end of the day.

EDIT, 10:50 a.m.: Same goes for Mike Davis. HOORAY! Someone is getting this job today.
