Ernie Kent in Limbo

Bob Clark of the Eugene Register Guard has a news story in Friday's paper on the lack of info on Ernie Kent's status as coach of the University of Oregon men's basketball team. Will he be fired or will he stay? Some quotes from the article:

What’s taking Oregon so long to decide the fate of men’s basketball coach Ernie Kent?

“We need to do something in the next week, I’d hope,” UO director of athletics Pat Kilkenny said Thursday. “We’re still kind of gathering some information.”

As this process drags out, now more than two weeks past the end of the season, it’s leading to increased and widespread speculation about what’s going to happen. Can that be good for the coach, or the university?
