Bradley update: Hartford paper says he's not going to UConn
January 6, 2011 - Cory Giger
Multiple published reports Thursday indicated Penn State defensive coordinator Tom Bradley would be interviewing Friday for the head coaching job at Connecticut, but late Thursday night the Hartford Courant reported Bradley would not be making the trip there.
The Courant cited an anonymous source in its report, although it ended its story with the words "who knows for sure?" At this point, Bradley's ultimate destination continues to be more about speculation than known fact.
The Hartford newspaper reported Delaware head coach K.C. Keeler is a leading candidate at UConn.
Bradley remains a strong candidate at Pitt, and there were no developments on that front Thursday.
Athletic Director Steve Pederson held telephone discussions yesterday with the Pitt media in Birmingham, Ala., where the Panthers play Kentucky in their bowl game Saturday.
"We are meeting potential candidates in a first round, then we will identify a smaller number of candidates from that pool who will be brought to campus to participate in further interviews with a group that includes the chancellor," Pederson told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
"We want to move swiftly, but we have no timeline for completion of the process, and we want to make sure we find the right person to lead this program but do so in a timely manner."
