Villanova's Jay Wright reiterated today that he isn't interested in any other coaching job, either in the college game or NBA.

“No one’s contacted me,” Wright said before he addressed his team, 3 days after they were eliminated by St. Mary's in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. “I’m happy about that. I love my job. Unless something changed here, I don’t think I want to go anywhere.

“I really don’t want to have to think about it, but I understand I might have to. Right now I can tell you I don’t want to leave.”

Wright's name came up last year when the Sixers were searching for a new coach and Philadelphia could be looking again this year as it struggles through a 24-47 season. The 7-63 New Jersey Nets could be looking for a new coach, too.
