Let the rumor mill begin

Posted by Bob Condotta at 11:05 AM

Big news from the Golden State Warriors today -- and that's not a sentence that gets written too often -- as the team is firing Mike Montgomery to bring back Don Nelson.

That could have big ramifications somewhere in college basketball as Montgomery figures to be on the short list for just about any team that may make a change this year.

And considering his Pac-10 ties and west coast ties, the rumors will ring strongest out here -- Oregon, maybe?

Certainly, Montgomery made out financially with the Warriors, but there's no doubt he's better suited to be a college coach. And here's hoping he finds his way back to a college sideline somewhere.
