Baylor assistant Jerome Tang has decided to remain on Scott Drew's staff and not move to Memphis, a source told CBSSports.com on Thursday. Consequently, new Memphis coach Josh Pastner will continue to operate as a one-man show because he currently has no assistants ... or even a secretary.
"I'm doing it all," Pastner said by phone late Thursday.
Yes, John Calipari even took his office manager (Lunetha Pryor) to Kentucky with him, along with assistants John Robic, Orlando Antigua and Rod Strickland. In other words, the basketball office at Memphis is pretty much empty as the April recruiting period gets underway, and it'll stay that way, at least for the time being, thanks to Tang's decision to remain at Baylor one day after interviewing at Memphis .
To put this into perspective, understand that most schools have three coaches on the road right now recruiting.
Meantime, Memphis has one coach ... period.
