After talking with Clemson over this past weekend, consulting his wife, Meo, and Billy Donovan (for some reason), Rick Stansbury has decided that he will not be the next coach at Clemson and has made it clear he is at Mississippi State for the long haul. He had a media event today to announce the news.
Stansbury has been at Mississippi State for 20 years, starting in 1990 as an assistant for Richard Williams. He has been head coach since 1998 and has a 255-136 record with six trips to the NCAA Tournament.
Outgoing AD Greg Byrne says that he intends to extend Rick's contract to 4 years (the maximum allowed by Mississippi), but there will be no raise involved.
