Shaka-watch 2014 Tweet Another year and more schools are coming after Shaka Smart. The VCU coach is in demand and this year the interested schools are Wake Forest and Marquette. There are indications that Smart may be interested in Marquette. He is a Madison, Wisconsin native and the Golden Eagles can pay big money. There were broadcast reports from Milwaukee Monday that Shaka to Marquette was a done deal but those proved to be false but they have spoken. Here is a link of a story from one of those TV stations. http://www.jrn.com/tmj4/wi-sports/Report-Marquette-reaches-out-to-Shaka-Smart-251960951.html Here is a link to this morning's article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that documents where things stand. http://www.jsonline.com/sports/goldeneagles/mu-hasnt-landed-shaka-smart-b99232192z1-252125081.html VCU will make every effort to keep Shaka here but the Rams can't compete with 3 million or more dollars a year. We shall see.
