Boeheim back next year, "As far as I know"
ATLANTA -- Fiery as ever at 68, Jim Boeheim wanted nothing to do with questions about whether he'll be returning to coach next season when Syracuse moves to the Atlantic Coast Conference.
"I'm not going to answer that question unless you ask every coach that question," Boeheim snapped at a reporter, minutes after a 61-56 loss to Michigan in the national semifinals Saturday night.
There has been some speculation that Boeheim is no fan of the move from the soon-to-be-disbanded Big East to the ACC. But in responding to a question in the postgame news conference, the coach said he has "never indicated at any time that I'm not coming back next year -- ever."
"As far as I know, I'm 100 percent coaching next year," he said. "That's really kind of where I'm at right now."
