Wichita State's Marshall to make 'special announcement

Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall will make a "special announcement" about his future with the Shockers basketball program on his coach's show tonight, a Wichita area TV station reporting.

Marshall, who coached Wichita State to this season's NIT title and who took Winthrop to seven NCAA tournaments in nine seasons, appeared to be one of the coaches N.C. State was considering for its vacancy. According to KWCH-TV, however, Marshall is expected to announce tonight that he will remain at Wichita State.

Marshall was not scheduled to broadcast his show this evening, according to the programming director of KFH, the radio station broadcasting it. But KWCH reported that Wichita State contacted KFH today to request a "last minute" show tonight to allow Marshall to make an announcement.

Earlier today, Virginia Commonwealth athletic director Norwood Teague confirmed that VCU coach Shaka Smart had declined an offer from N.C. State and will stay with the Rams program.

You NC State fans crack me up..."he wasn't offered". I read on ESPN today about Shaka staying at VCU and someone wrote "I highly doubt he was offered the job." I mean, they only had the actual numbers of the offer...but right, seems highly doubtful.

Enjoy that ACC cellar Wolfpack!
