I spoke this morning with Cal athletic director Sandy Barbour, who said the Miami Herald got it wrong when it reported she was in Florida on Sunday to interview for the Hurricanes’ AD job.
“The report is not accurate,” she said.
Barbour said she attended the Charter Gala at San Francisco City Hall on Saturday night and met Sunday late afternoon with the women’s basketball team to discuss the status of the program and the search for a replacement for departed coach Joanne Boyle.
Barbour told me she had a phone conversation with Miami last Monday. “That was it,” she said. “I told them I didn’t have any interest.” There has been no additional contact with Miami, she said.
“I have no interest in other universities,” Barbour told me. “I’m committed to Cal and I’m looking forward to being here for a long time.”
Regarding the women’s coaching search, Barbour said her timetable is to move “as expeditiously as we possibly can while getting it right.”
