CASPER — Former Kentucky coach Billy Gillispie has declined comment on whether he would be interested in Wyoming's coaching job.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports that Gillispie said in an e-mail to the newspaper this week that he doesn't comment on his interest in any potential coaching position.

He says he'd like to return to coaching at some point but only when he believes the team he coaches has a chance to go to the Final Four.

UW fired head coach Heath Schroyer on Feb. 7 with seven regular season games remaining in his fourth season.

The university has hired a search firm to fill the position.

UW has declined to comment on candidates during its search.

Gillispie has been out of coaching since March 2009.
