HOUSTON -- Shaka Smart of VCU will stay at VCU and not cash in on his instant superstardom, a source in Richmond told me a minute ago.
For the 33-year-old Smart (55-21 in two years at VCU), it caps a whirlwind three weeks that saw him go from relative anonymity to rising star to the hottest commodity on this spring's coaching market.
Smart had talked to N.C. State on Sunday night and Monday morning. A formal offer was never extended, but that could be a formality. That information is beyond my pay grade.
