Turner Gill Staying at Buffalo

Turner Gill is not interested in the vacant Iowa State head coaching job, and in fact, has signed a contract extension and will remain at Buffalo.  ESPN is reporting that Gill's contract will make him one of the highest paid coaches in the MAC.

Meanwhile, Charles Barkley continues to criticize his alma mater, saying that race was the reason Auburn didn't select Gill.

"I'm just very disappointed," Barkley said. "I just thought Turner Gill would be the perfect choice for two reasons: He's a terrific coach and we needed to make a splash. I thought we had to do something spectacular to bring attention to the program. Clearly, if we'd hired a black coach, it would have created a buzz."

"My biggest problem with the black coaches is they're not getting jobs and they're getting [expletive] jobs when they are hired," Barkley said. "They're not getting good jobs. They're not getting jobs where they can be successful. That's why I wanted Turner to get the Auburn job. He could win consistently at Auburn. You can't win consistently at New Mexico. You can't win consistently at Kansas State. He could have won at Auburn."
