Gillispie Says Only Regret is Not Winning More Games

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Ousted Kentucky coach Billy Gillispie says
he has no hard feelings toward Kentucky after the university fired
him on Friday.
Gillispie said at a news conference Saturday that his one regret
during his turbulent two years was not winning enough games .
The Wildcats went 40-27 under Gillispie and missed the NCAA
tournament for the first time in 18 years this season while going
22-14.
University officials said Gillispie wasn't the right fit and the
school doesn't plan on paying him a $6 million buyout because he
never signed a contract. Gillispie says he felt he did everything
necessary to get the program back on track and expects to receive
all $6 million.
