Did Gregg Marshall’s agent pull a Jordan Cameron on everyone?

About an hour after it was reported that Marshall was planning a trip to Alabama and that the Crimson Tide could pay him nearly $4 million per season, reports said Marshall had reached an agreement to stay at Wichita State.

Alabama AD Bill Battle even released a statement saying he had been informed that Marshall would be staying with the Shockers.

Marshall has been at Wichita State since 2007. He will be receiving a significant pay raise from his current $1.75 million annual salary in order to remain in Kansas, where he has led the Shockers to three straight 30-win seasons. CBS Sports’ Matt Norlander reports his new deal calls for $3.3 million per season over seven years.

Marshall, 52, has gone 205-76 in eight seasons at Wichita State. He has led the Shockers to three Missouri Valley Conference championships.
