Two former UK assistants already hired elsewhere

When the coaching carousel slows people tend to focus on the head coaches who were fired and feel badly for them, failing to realize those guys typically walk with substantial buyouts that provide a cushion. Most assistants aren't so lucky; when their bosses are fired they are almost always fired too, but they rarely have a notable financial cushion -- meaning their termination can be as difficult to endure as when a normal person loses their normal job, which is why it's always interesting to see which assistants land where, or if they land at all.

I say all that to say this: Two of Billy Gillispie's former assistants have already found new homes.

As reported weeks ago, Glynn Cyprien has joined Josh Pastner's staff at Memphis, and now -- as of Tuesday -- Tracy Webster has joined Jerry Wainwright's staff at DePaul, leaving Jeremy Cox as the lone Gillispie assistant still looking for work. Webster's hiring filled one of three openings on Wainwright's staff. The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that former DePaul star David Booth (currently a scout with the Memphis Grizzlies) is a candidate to fill one of the remaining openings.
