Heath on job speculation: 'I love being here at USF'
With a few high-profile openings and USF coming off its first-ever NCAA Tournament wins, Bulls coach Stan Heath has been mentioned as a possible candidate for openings like Illinois, but he said after Wednesday's pep rally that he hasn't been contacted by any schools and isn't planning on going anywhere.
"It's flattering, but I really love being here at USF," Heath said. "I definitely like the direction we're going. I know our guys are excited. Since we got back, they've been working and trying to get themselves ready for next season. I think we're in a good place, and I love the guys we have coming in."
It's promising for Bulls fans that sophomore Victor Rudd, who is exploring the possibility of entering the NBA Draft, attended the pep rally with his teammates, and Heath said he's encouraged by the fact that Rudd continues to attend his spring classes. "That tells me something, too," he said.
