Witherspoon waiting for right opportunity


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Former UB basketball coach Reggie Witherspoon was one of many familiar faces, taking in the practices today at First Niagara Center. Being around that type of atmosphere seemed to fuel his coaching fire.

“It’s hard not to get that itch when you’ve been doing it for a long time… it’s also hard not to get that itch when you get around good people. Some of the people I haven’t seen in a few months,” said Witherspoon.

On whether he’s actively looking for a new coaching job, he said “With the way things are, you got to kind of keep your eyes open, keep your ears open. Listen and look and see how things develop.”
