The good people over at Waiting For Next Year, whom we love and admire over here at Cavs: The Blog, have broken the story that Tom Izzo has agreed to become the head coach of the Cavaliers. What is not in dispute right now is that Izzo held a meeting with his MSU players and discussed Cleveland’s offer with them.
According to WFNY, he told them he is leaving at the meeting and plans to make an official announcement later in the week. According to other outlets, Izzo told his team that he has not yet made his final decision.
I completely trust that WFNY is reporting what they believe to be true and have 100% confidence in their source. The only reason I’m not 100% positive Izzo will be the next head coach of the Cavs is that college coaches have been known to waffle on big decisions like this. We will, of course, keep you updated as this develops. Kudos to WFNY for getting such a major scoop.
