Rick Barnes says he wanted to stay as Texas coach

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Fired Texas basketball coach Rick Barnes says the athletic director told him a week ago he'd return for another season, but "some things changed."

At a farewell news conference Sunday, Barnes insisted he's not bitter about the dismissal. But he said he was "shocked" by what he said were athletic department leaks to the media in recent days that he was being pressured to fire his assistant coaches to save his own job.

Barnes says several staff members offered to quit but he refused. He said he didn't want to give up control over his staff.
