Billy Gillispie thinks he's interesting

Former Kentucky basketball coach and current labor statistic Billy Gillispie has announced he's going to write a book about his coaching experiences.

From the article:
Gillispie and the author have been working on the book on and off for the past three years but now have formally agreed to see the book through to completion.

"I am just really excited about what we have done so far," Gillispie said. "And I look forward to continuing on this project. It has been a lot of fun so far, and I am sure it will be a lot of fun to complete. I have more time to do it now."
He's been a college head basketball coach for exactly 7 seasons - 2 at UTEP, 3 at TAMU, 2 at UK - sounds more like he's writing a leaflet than a book.

And he's been working on it for the past three years? Four years into his head coaching career, he feels he's interesting enough to write a book about his experiences? Instead of wasting his time writing a book no one but his mom will be interested in reading, he should spend a time reading a book or two on community relations. He was almost Orgeron-esque in his dealings with fans and media... standoffish despite being the biggest celebrity on campus.

No word if he's actually signed a contract to finish the book though...
