ESPN is talking about the LA Times article in which Tim Floyd talked about meeting with USC AD Pat Haden about the Trojans' coaching job.

Anchor Kevin Negandhi openly questions the timing of the announcement as Floyd's Miners take on No. 25 Memphis tonight, while former Virginia Tech head coach Seth Greenberg says he applauds Floyd for being up front about the process rather than hiding from the rumor mill.

It would seem that Floyd has known of Haden's interest in perhaps bringing him back to the Trojans' fold since late January after UTEP AD Bob Stull released this statement:

“I was contacted six weeks ago by Pat Haden, who was interested in talking to Tim Floyd about the USC coaching job. The meeting took place. Coach Floyd has always indicated to me that he is happy working at UTEP, and until he tells me otherwise he is our coach.”
