Matt Painter, the head basketball coach at Purdue University, has turned down the offer
to take over the program at University of Missouri.
Painter was offered the Mizzou job yesterday -- a position that would likely have paid him $2 million a year
after former MU coach Mike Anderson departed for Arkansas last week.
Yesterday Purdue renegotiated its contract with Painter and he's expected to sign an extension with the school. In short, another college coach just gamed the system
to get ever richer. Shocker.
Back to the drawing board.
