Extra! Rice Turns Down UIdaho Offer

Gonzaga assistant coach Leon Rice has pulled his name from consideration for the Idaho’s men’s basketball coaching job. Rice, who said Sunday he was offered the job, informed Athletic Director Rob Spear of his decision in a telephone conversation this morning. “He just thought that he needed to stay at Gonzaga so he’s withdrawing from the search,” Spear said. “Obviously we were very interested in him, but I want something in this position that wants this job and really wants the job and has a passion for the University of Idaho.”
