Any basketball coach will tell you that two years isn't much time to rebuild a program, and some local high school coaches said that's what is so unusual about Kentucky's decision to dismiss Billy Gillispie. Gillispie was fired less than two years after coming to Lexington, and those high school coaches said that probably isn't long enough. However, they also said it was clear that the factors leading to Gillispie's ouster went well beyond the performance of the program. "The public relations aspect probably was the thing the UK administration didn't like," Casey County girls coach Randy Salyers said.
