Jay Wright hears his name in coaching rumors this time of year about as routinely as he leads Villanova to the NCAA tournament.
Wright's message Tuesday was the same as years past: He wants to end his career with the Wildcats.
He says, ``I love my job here. I intend to be at Villanova next year.''
Wright led the Wildcats to a 25-8 record this season a year after they went to the Final Four. Villanova was eliminated by Saint Mary's on Saturday in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
Wright interviewed with the Philadelphia 76ers last year and, with coach Eddie Jordan's job status uncertain, could be a candidate again to revive interest in the flagging franchise.
