Goodman: Rhoades-BU speculation over

By Craig Meyer/DFP Staff

Less than a week ago, it was first reported that Virginia Commonwealth University assistant coach Mike Rhoades was under close consideration to become the next head coach of the Boston University men's basketball program.

Days later, such talk has come to an end, as CBS Sport college basketball writer/insider tweeted Tuesday that Rhoades is "no longer in the mix at BU."

Rhoades, 36, just completed his second season as an assistant to Rams head coach Shaka Smart after spending the previous ten seasons as the head coach at Randolph-Macon College. Virginia Commonwealth is coming off the first Final Four appearance in the history of the program.

The news comes within the same hour that University of Maryland assistant Scott Spinelli informed The Daily Free Press that he will no longer pursue the opening at his alma mater.

At this point, it's looking like the only reported names that are left are Jones, Skinner, Ferry and of course Daly. Daly is interviewing for the job tomorrow, so if it's him there should be a hire here in the next few days
