Shaka ain't going anywhere for the time being. Signed an 8 year extension I believe. Plus this interview.

Patrick also said there could be a feeling if you stay too long, nobody might call in the future.
"No, not at all," Smart said.
Patrick asked if returning was a tough decision given the money that might be offered by other schools.
"If the motivation is financial, then I certainly would have left," Smart said. "There's a lot more that goes into it. I think if you ask any coach around the country — and coaches are certainly compensated very, very well — why they got into coaching, I think very, very few of them would say for the money.
"If I ever got to the point that I was scared about this might not be there in the future or that sort of thing, then I probably shouldn't be doing this. You never want to make decisions out of fear."
