UPDATE: We’ve now talked to multiple sources who believe this report of what took place at the meeting to be true.
Every time the muddled picture of what exactly is happening with the Sampson decision appears to becoming clearer, it gets muddied again.
We just heard from a source close to the basketball program who talked with players attending the meeting tonight with Rick Greenspan. The source said the players were told that nothing has yet been decided on Sampson’s fate. The players told Greenspan that it wouldn’t be fair for anyone other than Sampson to coach the team, the source said.
Neither Dan Dakich nor Ray McCallum has been approached to serve as interim coach, according to the source.
Greenspan is still in his office at 10 p.m. with reporters waiting outside, and it sounds like those reporters may not get to speak with him tonight. I was just told that his son took a pillow inside.
