By: The Associate Press
UK plans to announce today that Billy Gillispie will be the new basketball coach to succeed Tubby Smith.
A source familiar with the search process has told the Associated Press that Gillispie will be named at a 12:15 news conference.
Texas A&M athletic director Bill Byrne granted Kentucky permission to contact Gillispie late yesterday. Gillispie took the Aggies to the NCAA tournament's round of 16 this year for the first time since 1980.
