    Scott Drew says he’s “locked in” on Baylor amid reports that he will be staying at the Big 12 school and not taking the Louisville job.

    “I am locked in on Baylor University…Baylor is my home and my family’s home,” he said on ESPN 1660 Waco, Texas.

    Jeff Goodman also reported Drew will remain at Baylor, the school he led to an NCAA championship in 2021 and an NIT title in 2013.

    He is 445-243 at Baylor with 12 NCAA Tournament appearances. No. 3 Baylor faces No. 14 Colgate in a first-round game Friday in Memphis.

    Louisville fired Kenny Payne earlier this month, and Drew was listed as the betting favorite to replace him.

    One industry source told ZAGSBLOG Louisville is expected to name a new coach, possibly by the end of this week and that it’s “not Scott Drew.”
