Doug Wojcik told the Associated Press that stories that he is going to interview for Georgia Tech men’s basketball job are “hilarious.”
“It’s nice. It’s flattering,” he said. “I haven’t heard anything.”
A Georgia Tech official, reached earlier in the day, declined to comment.
Wojcik is 87-54 at Tulsa, turning them from a nine-win team into a 19-win team this season. In six seasons, he has yet to lead the Golden Hurricanes to the NCAA tournament. They have twice appeared in the NIT, reaching the second round in 2009. They won the CBI tournament in 2008.
An official in Tulsa’s athletics department said they don’t comment on the job status of their coaches, unless there’s a change.
Wojcik, 46, played point guard at Navy with David Robinson. Before taking the Tulsa job, he was an assistant coach at Notre Dame, North Carolina and Michigan State.
He is 58-39 in Conference USA play at Tulsa. Because it is a private school, Tulsa hasn’t made Wojcik’s salary public.
Athletic director Dan Radakovich fired Paul Hewitt more than a week ago after 11 seasons as coach. Hewitt went 189-160 overall and 72-104 in the ACC. The Yellow Jackets appeared in the NCAA tournament five times under Hewitt and twice played for the conference tournament championship.
