Utah basketball coach Jim Boylen was fired on Saturday. By that night there was talk that LSU’s Trent Johnson or former Alabama coach Mark Gottfried might pop up on the Utes’ radar.
Even ESPN’s Andy Katz has made the connection between those two and Utah, pointing out that Johnson was once a Utah aide before moving on to Nevada, Stanford and then LSU.
Gottfried is currently working with ESPN as an analyst. Johnson is coming off back-to-back 11-20 seasons in Baton Rouge. All things considered, both men should be flattered to get a call from Utah.
