Report: Miss St.‘s Rick Stansbury “Retires”


Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury is out, too.

The Bulldogs suffered a double-overtime loss to Massachusetts in the first-round of the NIT on Tuesday, ending its season in disappointing fashion. After the game, forward Renardo Sidney tweeted: “I’m out!” On Thursday, it was reported by that Stansbury, 52, has “retired.”

Considering his age and lack of success this season, it appears to be a euphemism for being fired.

Stansbury has coached at Mississippi State since the 1998-99 season but hasn’t advanced to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA tournament.

We’d be shocked if Stansbury doesn’t “unretire” and continue his coaching career somewhere else.
