Matt Painter Update: Matt Painter staying at Purdue according to multiple sources

I cannot confirm that this is really what is happening, and it goes against almost everything we’ve been hearing all day, but it’s certainly worth passing along.

Fox 59 in Indianapolis is reporting that Matt Painter will indeed STAY at Purdue, rather than accept an offer from Missouri.

matt-painter-purdueHere is the link so you can check it out for yourself.

Here is what it says:

BREAKING: Fox59’s Chris Hagan has learned Purdue Head Basketball Coach Matt Painter will be STAYING at Purdue University, despite reports saying he plans to leave for a job at the University of Missouri. Full report coming up on Fox59 News: First at Four. Updates coming on

And I just checked and they have a similar report:

Contrary to numerous media reports a source close to Fox 59 says Matt Painter is staying put in West Lafayette. The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported today that Purdue head coach Matt Painter accepted the men’s basketball coaching position at Missouri. But, late this afternoon Fox 59 has learned otherwise.

Good lord!

I am not confirming any of this, because I don’t know. Just passing it along as the latest update.

As our buddy Travis of Hammer and Rails said:

If the Fox59 report is true its a damn Christmas miracle

Indeed it would be.

Stay tuned. If this proves true, thousands of male Purdue fans wearing plaid will be spontaneously experiencing their first orgasms this afternoon. And wouldn’t that just be terrific?

Update: Apparently Andy Katz is now reporting on ESPN Radio that Painter will stay at Purdue. Purdue’s Christmas miracle just may have happened.

Update: And now ESPN is saying it on as well.

  9. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to

  10. Howdy! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a large amount of work?
    I’m completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and thoughts online.

    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!
