BREAKING: Painter Stays At Purdue

((HT: IndyStar))

Jeff Rabjohns lets us all know that Matt Painter is staying at Purdue after being courted heavily by Missouri...

Purdue on Tuesday said it had “clearly demonstrated Purdue University’s commitment to him and to our men’s basketball program.”
Especially after raising Painter's salary from $1.3-million to $2-million...

From Rabjohns, when he contacted Gene Keady about Painter's thought process:
“It’s about having the opportunity to win a national title with the backing of everyone,” Keady said during negotiations. “He wants to know if an assistant coach needs a car, he can get it. If something needs to be done, they’ll do it, so he doesn’t have to worry about all the nickel and dime stuff.

“It isn’t about money.”
