Gregg Marshall has plenty on his mind at the moment, what with his Wichita State team getting ready to play Ohio State in the NCAA West Regional final on Saturday at Staples Center.
Meantime, Marshall is being mentioned as a possible candidate to become the next coach at UCLA.
Asked Friday how he deals with that kind of talk while he's preparing for an opportunity to reach the Final Four, Marshall said, "I actually don’t deal with it." He added, "I'm not a jumper. I'm very pleased to be the coach at Wichita State. Content. Happy. And you can't buy happy. I've got a great group of guys here playing in the Elite Eight and that should be your focus."
That, of course, doesn't mean that Marshall would refuse to listen if UCLA comes calling after the Shockers conclude the tournament.
Marshall said that the UCLA job was "probably one of the top six elite jobs in the country," ranking it along with North Carolina, Duke, Kentucky, Indiana and Kansas.
